While discussing the impeachment inquiry during a press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) mocked President Trump by explaining the meaning of the word “exculpatory.”
“If the president has something that is exculpatory — Mr. President, that means you have anything that shows your innocence — then he should make that known, and that’s part of the inquiry,” Pelosi said.
“So far we haven’t seen that but we welcome it,” she added.
Pelosi also accused Trump of “bribery.” She said, however, that Democrats have not decided whether they will draft articles of impeachment.
Her remarks come one day after the first public testimony in the impeachment inquiry into Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
The inquiry was launched after a whistleblower’s revelation that the president pressured the leader of Ukraine to look into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in order to get military aid.
