Shaw then calls for backup and runs to Grimm, who he appears to be friends with.

“Andy, I’m sorry, brother,” Shaw is heard telling Grimm on the bodycam footage. “Listen, dude, you pulled that out like a gun out of the back of the Jeep.”

He then went on to claim he flashed his lights and tried to wave at Grimm, who didn’t see him.

“It’s my fault,”Grimm continues. “I’m on body camera, I’ll say it right now. I thought you saw me wave. I flashed my lights. You weren’t looking. It’s my fault. It’s my fault.”

“I don’t want you to lose your job for this,” Grimm told Shaw later in the footage.

"The facts are uncontested: that the President abused his power for his own personal, political benefit, at the expense of our national security interests," Pelosi wrote.

"The weak response to these hearings has been 'Let the election decide.' That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections," she continued.

Monday morning, Trump tweeted a quote from a Democratic member of Congress who claimed on Fox News that impeachment should be disbanded because it is dividing the country.

"This is absolutely uncalled for and disgusting," Haley complained on Twitter. "What is wrong with people? George Conway is the last person that can call someone 'trash.'"

Conway did not hold back in his reply.

"Oh, Nikki Haley, just the other day you said that the world’s biggest pathological liar, Donald Trump, was a 'truthful' man," he said. "That's the very essence of disgusting, trashy, and pathetic -- utterly shameless and transparent dishonesty."
