House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference that President Donald Trump’s statement that he would accept dirt from foreign countries in the 2020 election will not “trigger” impeachment hearings:
Yesterday, the president gave us, once again, evidence that he does not know right from wrong. It’s a very sad thing…
Everybody in the country should be totally appalled by what the president said last night. Should be totally appalled. He has a habit of making appalling statements. This one borders on so totally unethical but he doesn’t even realize it.
However, what we want to do is have a methodical approach to the path we’re on and this will be included in that. But not any one issue is going to trigger, oh now we’re going to go do this.
