House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) laid down the law Thursday at her weekly briefing, telling reporters that she would not comment on President Donald Trump’s “characterizations or mischaracterizations” of Democrats’ committee work.
“I am not commenting on what the President has to say about our work,” Pelosi said. “I always think whatever the President says about us, he’s projecting his own unruliness.”
“He’s a projector, and that’s what it’s about. I’m very proud of the work of our committees,” she continued. “We will not surrender our constitutional responsibility for oversight. That would make us delinquent in our duties.”
