Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Wednesday that President Donald Trump is engaged in a cover-up as he and his administration have blocked Congress from obtaining testimony and documents for their investigations. "We do believe that it's important to follow the facts. We believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up," Pelosi said after a closed-door caucus meeting with House Democrats to discuss their efforts to conduct oversight and investigations of the Trump administration.

I think Pelosi is laying the groundwork for impeachment, because that is the only way to hold Trump accountable:

"It was a very positive meeting, a respectful sharing of ideas. And I think a very impressive presentation by our chairs. We do believe it is important to follow the facts, that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up. A cover-up. And that was the nature of the meeting."

The cover-up is self-evident.

You don't hire General Coverup if you aren't involved in a coverup.

Fat Nixon is his unhinged rant of a presser just said that Don Jr. called him and told him about the meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower before it happened.

The man who paid $130,000 and $150,000 to two women to cover up their affairs with him just said he "doesn't do cover ups".

He should have said "He doesn't do cover ups well."

Looks like Nancy is starting to feel the pressure from her caucus to do something.

"A cover-up of what, Nancy? be specific."

Asked no Democrat ever.

Pelosi just baited Trump before their meeting so he would have a meltdown and walk out. It worked exactly as planned. It's going to get easier every time she works it now. Awesome job madam speaker.
One day at a time.

Chris Hayes @chrislhayes

"I don't do coverups" is in "I'm not a crook" territory

Could be?:

Speaker Pelosi: "In plain sight, in the public domain, this president is obstructing justice and he's engaged in a cover up, and that could be an impeachable offense."

"Let me just be very clear. Democrats are not saying impeachment. What I'm saying, what some others are saying, is an impeachment inquiry. Which is we have to start these investigations to see if we should do impeachment. Those are very different issues." ~ Ted Lieu

No doubt this is the strategy ... an "impeachment investigation" ... droning on an on, nothing to come of it ... just you knuckleheads hoping wailing and moaning ...

Seek help, its seriously a sickness.

- an impeachment inquiry

Which will consist of Democrats asking each other, "Do you think Trump is an orange bad man?"

"Yes, I do, madame speaker. He's very orange, and dangerous."

"Thank you. brave congress critter. Lets all remember, Orange bad."

Mackerel forgot about the 8 committee investigations of "Benghazi!!"

Here, there is actual malfeseance by Trump, stonewalling of Congress, etc.

What's he so afraid will come out? Huh? An innocent man doesn't act that way.

He's guilty as ---- or he'd be clamoring to get all the facts out there.

PS - your posts smell like a dead mackerel!

Andreas-Mackerel should read Article 3 from Nixon's impeachment.

Hillary Clinton deleted over 33,000 emails from a private server, as Secretary of State AFTER a congressional subpoena

Talk about stonewalling, where were you then? Defending her.

Denying what's clearly happening right before your own eyes? Yes, "c-c-conservatism" is a serious mental illness.

Holy Deplorable Idiots Batman!

PLEASE READ THE MUELLER REPORT.

10 clear instances obstruction by Trump in the Mueller report:

Pressure on James Comey to end probe of Michael Flynn
President's reaction to the continuing Russia investigation
Firing of Comey and aftermath
Appointment of special counsel and efforts to remove him
Further efforts to curtail the special counsel's investigations
Efforts to prevent public disclosure of evidence (ongoing)
Additional efforts to have Jeff Sessions take control of the investigation
Trump orders White House counsel to deny that president tried to fire Mueller
Trump's actions toward Flynn, Paul Manafort and other possible witnesses
Trump actions toward Michael Cohen

And that is just Obstruction of Justice.

Please read the report and stop acting like idiots.

So Mueller didn't have power to charge, indict, send a swat team with CNN in tow?

Interesting.
