Russia probe ‘cover-up’

Trump lashes out of Pelosi accusation

President Donald Trump yesterday fired back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusation that he is engaged in a cover-up, saying at a hastily arranged White House appearance,  “I don’t do cover-ups.”  Trump also said he would not work with Democrats on a major infrastructure proposal because of  “phony” investigations they are pursuing in Congress. The Republican president added that he was upset that Democratic lawmakers discussed the possibility of impeaching him before a White House meeting on infrastructure.

The president repeated his rhetoric about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.  “No collusion, no obstruction, no nothing,” Trump said.  “This whole thing was a take-down attempt at the president of the United States.”  As Democrats in Congress debated impeaching Trump, Pelosi said yesterday, about an hour before a White House meeting with him, that Trump is engaged in a  “cover-up.”  The president is stonewalling multiple congressional investigations by ignoring subpoenas, refusing to allow current and former advisers to testify, and not handing over documents, steps that have aggravated a confrontation with Congress.
