Nancy Pelosi Says She Is 'Done' With Donald Trump




 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is brushing back impeachment questions, saying "it's not even close" to having enough support among House Democrats for a vote.

Pelosi said at a policy conference Tuesday that her "stock goes up" when President Donald Trump attacks her, as he did last week.

Trump lashed out at Pelosi while both were overseas commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy. He called her "Nervous Nancy" after it was reported she privately told Democrats she'd rather see him voted out of office and "in prison" than impeached.

Pelosi said she never criticizes the president while abroad and won't do so now because she's "done with him."

Dozens of House Democrats want Pelosi to start impeachment proceedings from the Trump-Russia report, but she prefers to conduct more investigations.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, a fierce loyalist of President Donald Trump, will leave her job at the end of the month to return to her home state of Arkansas, Trump said on Thursday. The Republican Sanders, who is 36 and has three young children, has drawn fire from the White House Correspondents Association for limiting daily briefings, with Trump preferring to take questions himself from reporters and command the White House stage. The last briefing was 94 days ago, but Trump answers questions from reporters on a near-daily basis, including two extended sessions with them on Wednesday.

Trump says he'd 'want to hear' foreign dirt on his rivals

President Donald Trump says that if a foreign power offered dirt on his 2020 opponent he'd be open to accepting it and that he'd have no obligation to call in the FBI. Trump's comments, aired Wednesday and Thursday, come as congressional investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election continue, and they drew sharp response from his would-be Democratic rivals. On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates as part of its ongoing probe.
