  As Pelosi takes on Trump, longtime ally Adam Schiff leads the way Speaker Nancy Pelosi played an instrumental role in putting the Intelligence Chairman in the job where he might now help determine her legacy. “Speaker Pelosi has tremendous respect for him and trust in him,” said Rep. Ro Khanna, another California Democrat whose career Pelosi has nurtured. “She respects his intellect, she respects how he presents himself on television, she respects his judgment. ... They have a very close bond.”The prominent role also makes Schiff a target for President Trump and congressional Republicans, who are seeking any openings to discredit the Democrats’ impeachment efforts.

Congressional Democratic leaders offered a remarkable readout of a meeting with President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying that the President called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a "third-rate politician" in what they described as a " meltdown .".

WASHINGTON – After a tense day between Capitol Hill lawmakers and the White House, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a little fun.

President Donald Trump tweeted a photo of a group in a meeting at the White House, with Pelosi standing at the table, pointing a finger at the president. In his tweet, Trump said Pelosi had an "unhinged meltdown."

So, Pelosi made it the cover photo on her Twitter and Facebook pages.

Lawmakers and the administration met Wednesday to discuss Turkey and Syria, a meeting that resulted in congressional Democrats walking out of a meeting after they claimed the president was “demeaning” toward Pelosi, and had a “meltdown.”

While McConnell briefed senators on what would happen during a Senate trial, House GOP leaders convened what they expect will be regular impeachment strategy sessions.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not commit on Wednesday to sending the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Republican-held Senate, a surprise move that injects new uncertainty into Congress' timeline of the President's trial in the chamber.

Pelosi's highlighting the photo quickly went viral.

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly backed a resolution Wednesday condemning Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, a rare bipartisan rebuke at a time when the president is trying to shore up GOP support to stave off impeachment.

Democratic lawmakers said Pelosi left today's meeting after Trump called her a "third-rate politician," to which Pelosi said she responded: "I wish you were a politician, Mr. President. Then you would know the art of the possible."

"Do you think they like me?" Trump tweeted additionally, showing a picture of Democratic leaders.

Pelosi has gone viral before following things that have been seen as poking fun at the president, like when she stretched out her arms to loudly clap at Trump's last State of the Union address, or when she became a meme after confidently putting on sunglasses while leaving a contentious meeting at the White House last December.
