Pelosi: Impeachment is worth losing House over
“We could not ignore what the president did. He gave us no choice. So, it wasn’t any change of mind. I always said we will follow the facts where they take us, and when we see them, we will be ready. And, we are ready,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to CBS News’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday.
Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump told her about the interaction: “He told me it was perfect, there was nothing in the call. But, I know what was in the call. I mean, it was in the public domain. He didn’t even know that it was wrong.”
She added, “It is wrong for a president to say that he wants you — another head of state — to create something negative about his possible political opponent to his own advantage, at the expense of our national security, his oath of office to the Constitution and the integrity of our elections.”
“Don’t make this any worse than it already is.” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says President Trump should “honor your oath of office” and cooperate with the impeachment inquiry https://t.co/3BK9r6MTMR pic.twitter.com/758xIduA2y
