On Wednesday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke briefly with the press after Democrats held a “special meeting” on potentially impeaching Trump.

Pelosi told reporters, “We believe that no one is above the law, including the President of the United States. We believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

President Trump held a surprise press conference in the Rose Garden Wednesday after he cut short a meeting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats that were expected to be at the White House for a meeting on infrastructure.

The President revealed he ended the meeting with the Democrats because he was not happy with Pelosi’s claim that he was involved in a “cover-up” related to the Mueller investigation into alleged Russian collusion.

“I came here for a meeting with Democrats, not thinking that they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate. Nancy Pelosi, just before our meeting, made a statement that we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up,” President Trump said.

“I just wanted to let you know that I walked into the room and told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, ‘I want to do infrastructure, I want to do it more than you want to do it. I would be really good at that. That’s what I do. But you know what? You can’t do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with,’” Trump continued. (Continued Below)

The President added, “Instead of walking happily into a meeting, I walk into … look at people that have just said that I was doing a cover-up. I don’t do cover-ups.”

Trump also took to Twitter and fired off. “As I have long been saying, and has now been proven out, this is a Witch Hunt against the Republican Party and myself, and it was the other side that caused the problem, not us!”

He continued, “So sad that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will never be able to see or understand the great promise of our Country. They can continue the Witch Hunt which has already cost $40M and been a tremendous waste of time and energy for everyone in America, or get back to work But they really want a do-over!” (Videos Below)

President Trump went on say, “You can’t investigate and legislate simultaneously – it just doesn’t work that way. You can’t go down two tracks at the same time. Let Chuck, Nancy, Jerry, Adam and all of the rest finish playing their games In the meantime, my Administration is achieving things that have never been done before, including unleashing perhaps the Greatest Economy in our Country’s history.”

He concluded, “Democrat leadership is tearing the United States apart, but I will continue to set records for the American People – and Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers, I know you truly mean it!”
