A year ago, President Donald Trump submitted written answers to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s questions, and five months after that that Q&A was released to the public. Early Monday, Trump said he would “consider” doing so again, this time in an impeachment inquiry.
The president was responding to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) weekend interview on Face the Nation. During that interview, Pelosi said Trump’s actions were “much worse than even what Richard Nixon did,” but that at least “at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue.”
Pelosi also said that Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants,” saying, “He has every opportunity to present his case.”
It’s clear President Trump saw this because he addressed it directly. First, he accused Democrats of being do-nothings. Next, he mockingly called the CBS Show “DEFACE THE NATION.” Finally, he got to the heart of the matter, saying he would “strongly consider” answer impeachment investigators’ question in written format.
….that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!
“Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!”
