Pelosi on Trump: 'My stock goes up every time he attacks me'  

Speaker Nancy Pelosi further stoked her feud with President Donald Trump on Tuesday, boasting that "My stock goes up every time he attacks me, what can I say?"

During an interview at the Fiscal Summit sponsored by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, Pelosi declared that she's fed up with the tense back-and-forth she's had with the president. "I'm done with him," she said.

But she also poked at Trump, mocking his tariff fight with Mexico and calling him the "diverter of attention in chief."

Pelosi claimed Trump doesn't deserve attention for backing off his threat to impose escalating tariffs on Mexico and she cast doubt on the idea that Trump struck a substantive deal that will benefit the United States.

"They were designed to take your attention away from the Mueller report," Pelosi said about Trump's tariff threats.

Pelosi also responded to questions on impeachment, saying that "nothing was more divisive." She then commented that "you don't go to court with your weakest case as long as you keep getting more information to build your case."

Pelosi did continue to criticize what she views as presidential overreach and a dangerous pattern of refusing to comply with congressional oversight efforts.

"You are undermining the Constitution, not honoring your oath of office to support and defend." Pelosi continued, "What is appalling is the lack of respect for the oath of office that the Republicans in Congress, in the House, and in the Senate have for their own oaths of office to strengthen the institution in which they serve."

Pelosi has so far resisted impeachment proceedings, even while saying that Trump's actions ignoring subpoenas constitutes "obstruction of justice." The speaker has also said that Trump is "goading us to impeach him."

Pelosi then refused to talk further about the president, and rebutted CNN reporter Manu Raju's continued line of questioning, stating: "I will not be part of the diversionary tactics of the White House."

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.
