Trump shoots back at Democrats, declares ĎI donít do cover-upsí
New York Post ^ | May 22, 2019 | Mark Moore

Posted on 05/22/2019 9:54:19 AM PDT by detective

​President​ Trump on Wednesday ripped House Democrats for continuing investigations into his administration and ​shot back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who claimed that he is “engaged in a cover-up.”

The president said he was ready to attend a meeting with Democrats on infrastructure at the White House with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer right after she made the comments.

Trump said he walked into the room and told Pelosi and Schumer that he couldn’t talk about an infrastructure plan after the House speaker accused him of stonewalling the congressional investigations.

“I want to do infrastructure, more than you want to do it,” Trump said he told the two Democratic congressional leaders. “I would be really good at that. That’s what I do. But you know what? You can’t do it under these circumstances. So get these phony investigations over with.”

They’re basically going to deprive PDJT of his entire first term.

The next Democrat politician will be from a “protected group,” so any attempt by our side to use the same tactics will be attacked as ‘racist’ or ‘homophobic.’

This by the way is why Biden will never be President.

Oh, to have been there when he left the room. Probably told staff “Get those animals off the furniture.”

Second one too, assuming he wins in 2020.

Well, there is that. And he hasn't sniffed Mayor Pate's hair yet.

It’s pretty much a guarantee that the democrats are guilty of whatever they accuse other of doing.

I get what you’re saying but can’t help but point out that “our side” is not really our side. They do not represent or work for us.

Only a super massive electoral slap down will stop the Left/Dems. Sad to say that will never happen.

Trump could stop all this crap if he wanted to.

Trump should address Pelosi one-on-one. Clear the room, close the door, get in her face and tell her stop lying.

Furthermore, he should tell her that it would be unfortunate if she and her family were audited. I would do the same thing with Schmucky.

I have to think President Trump has already privately asked/told Nancy Pelosi to stop lying. It would have no effect. Lying is what she does.

Threatening to use the IRS for political purposes is a felony and would give the Democrats a reason for impeachment. Not that they need one.

“They’re basically going to deprive PDJT of his entire first term.”
“Second one too, assuming he wins in 2020.”

Strategically he has uncovered the Democrats worst behavior and long term goals - wasteful investigations and temper tantrums, attempts to raise taxes, abortion through time of actual birth. The next election will be brutal, hopefully at the end of the day he will not only be re-elected but will have both a Senate and House behind him as many will owe their elections to him. Winning both the electoral and polpular vote will be the icing on the cake, and should give him fairly wide latitude for at least two years, when the lame duck presidency issues will hold back further progress.

Agreed!

Once declassified, we will watch the Dems and Deep State spin, spin, spin. They can’t avoid the repercussions from arrests and trials, but will scream high and loud that it’s a “Political Witch Hunt”. With the MSM as their spokesman, a lot of American will believe their lies.

Is that not exactly what is happening with the Dems in Congress, “Threatening to use the IRS for political purposes.” Didn’t the Obama administration weaponize the IRS against Conservatives. Didn’t the Obama administration use the FBI, DOJ, and CIA to persecute Conservatives.

With the MSM spinning the narrative, it’s been hard to get at the truth. Fortunately Americans are seeing through the spin and are waking up.

President Donald Trump has been setting this up for the past several years. The people he is working on are stupid and predictable. But they are also seditious, and need to be dealt with in a totally legal, constitutional, manner. Otherwise, we lose the Republic.

Now they have accused him of “a coverup”. Fine, in some respects they are correct: President Trump has been covering up the seditious and treasonous activities of the Deep State. He just got them to “force” him to declassify everything about the Coup attempt to show that he isn’t really covering up anything.

Relax and enjoy the show!

He did this to force Pelosi to schedule impeachment hearings. She now has no other option.
