Pelosi is so 'done' with Trump, the 'diverter in chief'

President Donald Trump has continued his war of words against Pelosi

Trump, in an interview with Fox News' Laura Ingraham, had called Pelosi "a nasty, vindictive, frightful person".

"I don't even want to talk about him", the California Democrat continued. "My stock goes up every time he attacks me, so what can I say, but let's not spend too much time on that because that's his victory, the diverter-of-attention-in-chief".

When asked about whether she made the remarks, Pelosi said she would keep what she told fellow Democrats behind closed doors private.

Pelosi, under pressure from more progressive members of her caucus to launch a formal impeachment inquiry, said Trump's statement was "appalling" and "totally unethical", but that House Democrats would methodically pursue their various investigations.

Congressional Democratic Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said in a press conference that the option to seek impeachment proceedings against US President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice is still on the table.

Nadler said the US House of Representatives intends to get testimony from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the near future and will subpoena him if necessary. "We're not done with her". The speaker defended her position with, "I say nearly every day that the president is involved in a criminal cover-up, he just chose to pick it up that day". Mueller has previously said it would be inappropriate to speak further on his report on the probe into allegations of Trump-Russia collusion.

"When we have conversations in our caucus they stay in our caucus". Trump last month torpedoed a meeting with Democrats on infrastructure, saying he could not work with them as long as they were conducting multiple investigations of him. She and Trump both attended ceremonies in France marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day operation that helped end World War Two.
