"Let me be very clear: the president's behavior, as far as his obstruction of justice, the things that he is doing, it's in plain sight, it can not be denied-ignoring subpoenas, obstruction of justice", she said at a press conference on Thursday, calling impeachment divisive.
"Now, it is sexist trash", Clinton said during her speech. She has been insulting Trump since the meeting Wednesday that was supposed to be about bridges and other crumbling infrastructure. This year's Worldwide Threat Assessment said "adversaries and strategic competitors would likely attempt to use deepfakes" to influence campaigns in the US but they could also be used for other nefarious reasons.
Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., who serves on both the Judiciary and Rules committees, said he supports taking action as soon as possible, but "the whole caucus is in a discussion about which strategy is going to move us forward to counter the lawlessness of the administration", he told the Hill on Friday. "They have never recovered from the great election of 2016-an election that I think you folks liked very much, right?"
"Mueller's report describes a consistent effort by the president to use his office to obstruct or otherwise corruptly impede the Russian election interference investigation because it put his interests at risk", Amash wrote in a lengthy Twitter thread on Thursday.
Trump held an impromptu news conference Wednesday in the Rose Garden at the White House, saying it was impossible to work on such legislation as long as Democrats were continuing their "phoney" investigations of him.
Trump also attacked Pelosi, calling her a "mess" and said he, in contrast, is "an extremely stable genius". "But to overreact is a little hypocritical given she is the one who was making very, very direct comments about the competence of the president of the United States of America, which I don't think any good American should do".
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said he was "very calm, no temper tantrum".
"The White House is just crying out for impeachment, that's why he flipped yesterday", Ms Pelosi said.
In fact, the Democratic-controlled House has passed several bills on issues including firearms background checks, prescription drugs and campaign finance reforms - though they were dead on arrival in the GOP-controlled Senate.
So I walked into the Cabinet Room. Trump shared the video on Twitter, writing, "PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE".
Asked on Thursday if a deal on the budget or on the USA debt would get done, Trump said, "We'll see what happens". And the speaker is praying for Donald Trump but she's not blessing the impeachment, ' Barr said.
"So far what we've seen from the Democrats in Congress is that they are incapable of doing anything other than investigating this president", she said.
Democrats have long said they can work on two tracks - conducting oversight and legislating on their agenda of lower health care costs and infrastructure investment.
