Nancy Pelosi: 'Trump is goading us to impeach him'

The Democratic presidential candidate went to the Senate floor on Tuesday to reiterate her call for impeachment hours after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared "case closed" on the Russian Federation probe and potential obstruction by Trump.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and former Congressman Steve Israel laugh before the speaker's address to a bi-partisan group at the institute, May 7, 2019, in NY. "We have to see where the facts take us", she said. But the danger for Democrats: Independents aren't with them on impeachment of Trump. "Every single day, he's just like taunting, taunting, taunting". "And whatever it is, we'll be ready".

Pelosi noted that the third article of impeachment drawn up against President Richard Nixon was for his failure to comply with congressional subpoenas regarding Watergate.

Democrats countered the offer, requesting the full membership of the Judiciary and intelligence committees have access to the less-redacted report and that each side be allowed to bring in up to three staffers to assist them.

"It remains vital the committee obtain access to the full, unredacted report and the underlying materials", Nadler said in a statement late Monday. "And for us, for this body, for Congress, to back up from that, and to say that protecting the president is more important than protecting the constitution, is not only wrong, it is a violation of our oath of office".


"One thing leads to another", she said.

The redacted report Barr released included dozens of instances of missing material, information he said dealt with secret grand jury testimony and other sensitive material. "Regrettably, I think the answer is obvious". "Just as a matter of observation, that's just not a fact".

"They know the Justice Department is working to negotiate even as they pursue contempt charges, making their move. illogical and disingenuous", Collins said. "The case is not closed".

Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer later released a statement criticizing the Senate's top Republican over his statement.

The Justice Department warned it will ask the president to invoke executive privilege over the entire Mueller report if the committee does not cancel a planned vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt Wednesday morning, according to a letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd to the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday evening.


President Donald Trump arrives for an event to celebrate the one year anniversary of the "Be Best" initiative in the Rose Garden of the White House, May 7, 2019.

These are not trivial or political questions - they go to the wellspring of our democracy.

During the event where she spoke on Tuesday, Pelosi broadly defended Democratic oversight of the administration and brought up Russian interference in United States elections, saying, that "should be a cause of action for every branch of government".

"What's different now from then is that the Republicans are just probably never, never going to vote for impeachment of this president", Pelosi added.
