House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday smacked down Fox News reporter Chad Pergram after he insinuated that House Democrats seemed “excited” about the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump.
During a press conference, Pergram asked Pelosi, “Why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu was going on?”
“All this milieu is a seeking of the truth,” she replied. “It’s called an inquiry.”
Pelosi at this point turned to the camera and seemed to address Trump directly.
“And if the president has something that is exculpatory — Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence — then he should make that known,” she said. “And that’s part of the inquiry. So far we haven’t seen that.”
Pelosi then went on to say that, based solely on the evidence gathered so far, what the president has done “makes what Nixon did look almost small.”

Trump defender Kingston shamed into silence by MSNBC’s Joy Reid after blizzard of lies on impeachment
MSNBC host Joy Reid showed no patience with former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) on Sunday morning as the advocate for the re-election of Donald Trump repeatedly was called out for lying about the facts of the Ukraine corruption case against Donald Trump as well as the House impeachment trial.
Sitting on a panel with the Intercept's Mehdi Hasan, Kingston was given the first crack at addressing the defense case put forth by Trump's lawyers on the Senate floor on Saturday, only to be pulled up short by the MSNBC host after stating a falsehood, for which he received an admonishment.
With Kingston claiming Democratic members of the Senate who are currently running for their party's presidential nomination did not attend the Saturday hearing, Reid quickly cut him off.
