And we believe that the President of the United States engaged in the concealment, “said Pelosi. The announcement came amid growing rumors among Democrats about the impeachment.
“I’m not hiding anything, — the President told reporters at the White house, responding to cue Pelosi. — I think you know that better than anyone else“. Trump made this statement after the disrupted bipartisan negotiations on infrastructure initiatives with Pelosi and minority leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer.
“I walked into the office and said to Senator Schumer and speaker Pelosi, I want to do infrastructure. I [said] you want to do it more than you. I would do a good job, — said trump. — But… first finish with these false investigations”.
According to the participants of the meeting, trump first made them wait, and after the start of negotiations complained about the investigation and went away in a few minutes.
“It’s not very respectful to the Congress and the White house, said Pelosi at a press conference after he returned to the Capitol. — I pray for the President of the United States, and I pray for United States of America“.
Assistant minority leader in the Senate, dick Durbin, who was present at the meeting in the White house, said that while it was dominated by “strong tension“.
“So many things you need to do for this country but nothing will happen if we cannot work together, said Durbin. — When the President leaves the meeting, this is bad for the state“.
