Last week Trump called Pelosi, the most powerful U.S. Democrat, "a disgrace. a nasty, vindictive, frightful person".

Speaking to reporters, the U.S. House of Representatives' top Democrat said her caucus would continue to investigate Trump and his administration through their various committees, one day after Trump said he would take information from foreign sources on any political opponents and might not contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "My stock goes up every time he attacks me, so what can I say, but let's not spend too much time on that because that's his victory, the diverter-of-attention-in-chief".

On Wednesday, Trump told ABC News in an a televised interview that there was nothing wrong with accepting foreign assistance and he might not report such interference to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Politico reported last week that Pelosi told her fellow Democrats in a private meeting that she doesn't want to see Trump impeached but she wants "to see him in prison". "Do people think there's some impeachable offenses that the President committed? Yes".
