Altered video makes Pelosi seem to slur words

On Thursday, she said the White House is "crying out" for impeachment the idea being that a vindication by the Republican-controlled Senate would help assure his re-election.

At a White House news conference the day after the 2006 midterm elections, a Democratic sweep that would see Pelosi installed as the first female speaker of the House, CNN's Suzanne Malveaux teed up a doozy of a question for President George W. Bush.

Nadler, a 14-term congressman, told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow that he had urged Pelosi to accelerate the House response to an increasingly intransigent Trump administration but conceded Democratic victories in courts against the administration have weakened his argument. "When the "extremely stable genius" starts acting more presidential, I'll be happy to work with him on infrastructure, trade and other issues", Pelosi's tweet said.

Posts claiming Pelosi appears drunk or sluggish during events often make the rounds on social media following her press conferences. "She knows they are not true", Trump added. In reality, someone had taken a clip of Pelosi, in which her speech was normal, and altered its speed and the tone of her voice to create the effect. But Trump walked in and scolded the Democrats for their investigations, then went out to talk to the press with a handy "no collusion, no obstruction" sign already in place. They are also reacting to the anger of many Democratic activists and supporters, who want to hold the President accountable for his alleged obstruction of the Mueller probe, his alleged racism, his alleged corruption, what they consider his boorishness, and his assault on practically everything they hold dear.

The president said he has given his attorney general wide latitude to declassify intelligence information as he probes the origins of the government's investigation into Trump's 2016 campaign ties to Russian Federation.

Pelosi and Schumer both described Trump's walkout as a "temper tantrum".

She has been insulting Mr. Trump since the meeting Wednesday that was supposed to be about bridges and other crumbling infrastructure.

He said investigations of him and engaging in government policy negotiations could not be conducted simultaneously.

That has raised calls by Democrats for initiating impeachment proceedings against Trump.

Twice this week, federal judges have upheld congressional subpoenas for his records, at an accounting firm that handled some of his financial transactions and from Deutsche Bank, his primary lender for two decades, and Capital One Bank, where he keeps some of his money. Trump has appealed the ruling related to the accounting firm and is likely to appeal the bank information decision, as well. Trump was announcing $16 billion in effective welfare payments to farmers whose livelihood is threatened by his ill-advised trade war with China.

He directed all USA intelligence agencies to "quickly and fully cooperate" with Barr's review of the probe, which Trump has attacked as a "treasonous" attempt to unseat him.
