House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke to reporters after huddling with her members on impeachment and oversight on Wednesday, saying that “we believe that the President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up.”

“We do believe that it’s important to follow the facts,” she said. “We believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States.”

She also said that the meeting, which was in part to discuss launching an inquiry into impeachment, was “positive” and a “respectful sharing of ideas.”

So far, Pelosi has skillfully tempered her members’ frustration and desire to begin impeachment proceedings, and called this meeting in part to remind them of the extensive oversight efforts Democrats are spearheading.

    ETA: Found this over at Daily Beast… Wonder who the ghostwriter will be – who will probably end up with an even bigger book deal spilling the beans on working with Evil Spawn on a book. :joy: :joy: :joy:
