Trump says 'I don't do coverups' after Pelosi accusation

Trump says 'I don't do coverups' after Pelosi accusation President Donald Trump on Wednesday rejected a charge by Democratic House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he engaged in a cover-up. "I don't do cover-ups," Trump said in remarks from the White House Rose Garden, adding that he told Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who had gone to the White House for a meeting with him on infrastructure, that he could not hold a meeting under the circumstances.

The only 'cover-up' is the division in a Democrat Party being driven over the edge, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says on 'Fox & Friends.'

That ’ s what Barr is going to do, that ’ s what Horowitz is going to do. You can say this anyway you would like, but here is the bottom line. After two years of a political rectal exam, nobody has been looked at more than Trump. They found nothing. But the answer for the Democrats is Trump has got to go.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said Sunday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) job is at risk.

"Her job is very much at risk," Graham, a staunch defender of President, said on "Fox News Sunday." "Nancy Pelosi is riding a bucking, wild bronco called the Democratic Caucus."

"Seventy percent of the Democratic base wants President Trump impeached. She knows that impeachment would be political suicide, because there's no reason to impeach the president. So she's trying to keep the party intact. If she goes down the impeachment road, Republicans take back the House, we keep the Senate, President Trump gets reelected."

Pelosi has faced increased pressure from many members of her party in recent weeks to launch impeachment proceedings against the president.

The California lawmaker, however, has maintained that beginning proceedings is premature.

Trump and Pelosi engaged in a war of words all last week.

The president threatened that he would not work with Democrats on their legislative priorities unless they end their investigations, which he views as an attempted "re-do" of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

He walked out of a meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) moments after Pelosi said that Democrats think Trump is engaged in a "cover-up" by refusing to cooperate with investigations.

The Democratic leader later said that she thinks Trump is "just crying out" for Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings against him as a way to distract from scandals plaguing his administration.

Nancy Pelosi continues to resist impeachment, but says 'nothing is off the table'.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler resisted pressure from the left to open an impeachment inquiry on Wednesday, following special counsel Robert Mueller's announcement he's closing his office and would not provide information beyond his already public report in any appearance before Congress. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
