Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stops on the way to an important meeting with the President on infrastructure. She tells reporters that he is engaging in cover-up activities.
Pelosi had just emerged from a meeting of House Democrats where they had discussed the progress made in their myriad investigations of Trump. After giving reporters an update, she delivered the real message she’d wanted to convey:
We believe it’s very important to follow the law. 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. (repeats) In a cover-up. And that was the nature of the meeting.
The Speaker did not take questions. She had to run off to her meeting with the President.
In the meantime, Trump is told of Pelosi’s remarks and being human, he becomes angry.
Arriving at the White House, she is “surprised” that the President is furious and has decided to cancel their important meeting. My colleague, Streiff, wrote about this here.
She again speaks with reporters, this time with her buddy Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. With her signature “innocent” demeanor, she first told reporters about earlier negotiations they’d had with Trump on infrastructure. Then, she went in for the kill.
We went in the spirit of bipartisanship to find common ground with the President on this. He came into the room, made a statement that he made, I won’t even characterize it. (Pelosi grimaces, closes her eyes, shudders, smiles, babbles on about Thomas Jefferson’s and Teddy Roosevelt’s infrastructure initiatives, then resumes her attack.)
We were hoping to give this President an opportunity to have a signature infrastructure initiative… (still smiling pleasantly, childlike)
For some reason, maybe it was lack of confidence on his part, (or maybe it was because you just told reporters that he’s engaging in cover-up activities. Pelosi starts again, reaching for words, stuttering) That he really couldn’t…come…match…the greatness of the challenge that we have. Uh, he…wasn’t really respectful of the reason…uh…of the Congress and the White House working together (shrugs). He just (shrugs again, she just can’t figure this out) took a pass. And it just makes me wonder…why he did that.
In any event, I pray for the President of the United States. And I pray for the United States of America.
She then yields to the “distinguished Democratic leader of the Senate, Mr. Schumer.”
“To watch what happened in the White House would make your jaw drop.” (rambles on)
It was surreal to watch Pelosi and Schumer trying to point the finger at President Trump. “And it just makes me wonder…why he did that.”
Why do you think Nancy? Four thorough investigations of Trump have been conducted and zero have found that he engaged in any wrongdoing.
But that doesn’t stop Nancy and Chuck from continuing the charade.
Democrats shouldn’t be able to get away with making such blanket charges. “He’s engaged in a cover-up?” What exactly is he covering up? “He obstructed justice.” How, specifically, did he obstruct justice? Because he was falsely accused of a crime that was ruining his presidency and one day, in anger and frustration, he ordered the White House attorney to fire the prosecutor?
The deep state, in which Pelosi and Schumer play important roles, has tried for three years to manipulate Americans into believing that President Trump is crazy, angry, corrupt, immoral, treasonous and dangerous.
But, guess what? If what investigative reporter John Solomon announced in a Tuesday night appearance on “Hannity” is correct, and he’s been right about a lot of things, Trump will declassify the first batch of “Bucket Five” information (FISA documents) in five to six days. (I will report on it this morning.)
And Nancy and Chuck will be the ones in cover-up mode.
