Donald Trump has no respect for the law. As a master conman, one who may have pulled off the biggest con in the history of the nation, the president enjoys the game of bending the rules to the last breath before the breaking point and then beyond. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a brilliant lawmaker, so perhaps POTUS should be careful how he tries to manipulate one of the smartest people he may have ever met.

Pelosi called out Trump’s attitude of winning at any cost, including working in tandem with one of the country’s true enemies, Russia. She said “it’s appalling” he would not even in some small way try to protect the 2020 elections “so we can prevent it from happening again:”

‘We follow the facts. Now as I said yesterday, the president is almost self-impeaching because he is everyday demonstrating more obstruction of justice and disrespect for Congress’s legitimate role to subpoena.’

Pelosi spoke to reporters Thursday at her press conference, according to ABC. She said the country is indeed in a “constitutional crisis,” but that has not changed her methodical “facts and truth” approach to governing:

‘We have investigations that will give us facts and the truth. This is not about Congress or any committee of Congress. It’s about the American people and their right to know and their election that is at stake and that a foreign government intervened in our election and the president thinks it is a laughing matter. When we’re ready, we’ll come to the floor, and we’ll just see.’

Pelosi said that the Democrats want to hear directly from Special Counsel Robert Mueller first:

‘There may be some other contempt of Congress issues that we want to deal with at the same time.’

The Democrats have been laying the case should their investigations prove Trump must be impeached:

‘We’re asking in the constitutional way for the administration to comply. We still have more opportunities. We’ll see if Mueller will testify and that will that will make a big difference in terms of where we go from here.’

The speaker said there was no chance the Democrats were going to get ahead of themselves:

‘We’re going to do the right thing. That’s just the way it is and it is going to be based on fact and law and patriotism – not partisanship or anything else. It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with E Pluribus Unum,” she said referring to the Latin motto on the Great Seal of the United States, and also all U.S. currency and coins meaning “Out of many, one.” Impeachment is one of the most divisive things that you can do, dividing a country unless you really have your case with great clarity for the American people.’

Pelosi explained how oversight works:

‘It’s very Constitution-based. It’s very law-based. It’s very factually-based. It’s not about pressure. It’s about patriotism. Will the administration violate the constitution of the United States and not abide by the request of Congress in its legitimate oversight responsibilities? Well, that remains to be seen. Every day they are advertising their obstruction of justice by ignoring subpoenas and by just declaring that people shouldn’t come and speak to Congress so that the American people can find out the truth about the Russian disruption of our election so that it doesn’t happen again.’
