Nancy Pelosi Doubles Down on 'Cover-Up' Remarks After Trump Explodes: 'Could Be an Impeachable Offense'


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is doubling down on her claims of President Donald Trump perpetrating a "cover up," saying "this president is obstructing justice ... and that could be an impeachable offense."

Pelosi was speaking at a conference hosted by the left-leaning think tank the Center for American Progress on Wednesday broadcast on C-SPAN.

"The fact is, in plain sight, in the public domain," Pelosi said. "This president is obstructing justice and he's engaged in a cover-up. And that could be an impeachable offense."

"Ignoring the subpoenas of Congress was article three of the Nixon impeachment," Pelosi noted. "As they say, the cover up is frequently worse than the crime."

There's applause after she says "that could be an impeachable offense," about 1:40 in that clip.

1. Here we go!

"The fact is, in plain sight, in the public domain," Pelosi said. "This president is obstructing justice and he's engaged in a cover-up. And that could be an impeachable offense."

"Ignoring the subpoenas of Congress was article three of the Nixon impeachment," Pelosi noted. "As they say, the cover up is frequently worse than the crime."

20. There it is..just 3 words ".....an impeachable offense"

..This leader of the House of Representatives has spoken. Speaker of the House of Representatives..

..."Cover Up..worse than the crime"

But Donald Trump says... He doesn't do cover ups...and all that means is, "I do cover ups"
You see this is "Lying Donald Trump" talking.

That is what Trump is good at and has done all his life. Lie.

26. Trump is a terrible liar. Only complete idiots fall for his shtick.

Just because he lies with complete ease and confidence doesn't mean he's any good at it.

You should hear my uncle play the saxophone. He thinks he's Clarence Clemons. Meanwhile, every dog in the neighborhood is howling.

28. I love her approach.


She is slowly planting the idea in both the minds of the public, which will increase open conversation and support for impeachment, and even better, she is continuing to poke Drumph with words which he cannot ignore, and he will
retort back in his usual infantile manner.

Meanwhile, the courts are upholding the right of the House to have information which underlies the charges needed for an impeachment process.
and drives him even nuttier.

30. GMTA! She is laying the groundwork slowly but surely in a steady drumbeat that will lead us

the country to conclude we MUST impeach, that impeachment is a constitutional remedy. Pretty soon most people will think "why the hell do we have to put up with a president who does this stuff?" Impeachment, then, will be regarded as the remedy to a chief executive's crimes and misdemeanors.

2. Thats why is was stupid for him to pull this blanket refusal to let anyone testify because then it

officially becomes a case of obstruction over something Congress has the Constitution on its side over.

11. That's exactly what we need.

A few hundred thousand screaming Democrats shouting at Trump to resign before he's impeached, a'la Nixon. Of course the pending investigations would still continue, and Pence can't pardon New York State convictions. It's time for the American people to make their voices heard. If I knew how to organize something of that scale I'd do it.

23. She is trying to bring the American people around to it.

We're already there, but lots of people who don't pay much attention will just see it as more political infighting.

She has to paint a loud and clear message first. I'm glad she is starting.

8. She never did say that Impeachment is off the table...

at least not this time.

She's letting the process play out, and she is shepherding it to its logical conclusion, which will probably be impeachment.

but, aiding & abetting a foreign adversary in an attack on the United States is pretty damn serious.

14. And not only this, but he's said he's holding the government hostage.

He will allow no legislation, infrastructure or otherwise, unless they stop investigating him. Extortion should not be tolerated!

We have McTurtle and Dirty Don's veto pen. Nothing will be happening now.
