Trump Blasts ‘Crazy, Petrified, Nervous’ Nancy Pelosi, Says He Will ‘Strongly Consider’ Testifying In Impeachment Inquiry
A raging President Donald Trump on Monday slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), calling her “crazy, petrified, and a nervous radical” while ranting that he will “strongly consider” testifying in the House impeachment inquiry, despite his repeated refusal to cooperate with the investigation.
“Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?) Speaker of the House, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION….that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it! Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.
Trump was responding to Pelosi’s suggestion on “Face the Nation” a day earlier in which she said the president could “come right before the committee and talk … or he could do it in writing.”
The White House has directed officials not to comply with the impeachment inquiry, and it’s unclear whether Trump would follow through on testifying himself, particularly under oath.
Trump previously said during former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that he would sit for an interview, only to provide Mueller with written answers to several questions. Trump’s attorneys fought against an in-person interview after expressing concerns it could be a “perjury trap” for a president who often exaggerates or flat out lies.
Trump has attacked the impeachment proceedings as “rigged” and a “hoax” and complained that the White House has not received proper due process.
Asked about the latter assertion, Pelosi said Sunday that Trump would be welcome to make his case under oath.
“The president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants to … take the oath of office or he could do it in writing,” Pelosi said. “He has every opportunity to present his case.”
….that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!
