Trump Blasts Pelosi as “All Lies” and the “Most overrated person I know”

Tuesday, President Trump took to Twitter to blast House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Trump tweeted:

Remember when Pelosi was screaming that President Trump is a danger to our nation and we must move quickly.

They didn’t get one Republican House vote, and lost 3 Dems. They produced no case so now she doesn’t want to go to the Senate. She’s all lies. Most overrated person I know!

Per TheHill, the House voted earlier this month to impeach Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress following an investigation into his conduct toward Ukraine. Democrats alleged the president made security assistance and a White House meeting for Ukraine contingent on the country announcing investigations into Trump’s rivals.

But Pelosi has yet to send the articles to the Senate as Democrats seek to pressure Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to agree to certain parameters for Trump’s trial.

McConnell and other senators have indicated they would rather not call witnesses in hopes of a quick trial that ends in Trump’s acquittal. But leading Democrats have pushed for administration officials to testify as part of any Senate proceeding.

The Speaker’s decision to hold onto the articles has proven to be a sticking point for Trump, who has tweeted more than a dozen times about Pelosi since arriving at his West Palm Beach property.

Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that Democrats “will do anything to avoid a trial in the Senate” in an effort to protect former Vice President Joe Biden. The president has called for Biden, his son Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower who triggered the impeachment inquiry to testify.
