President Trump offered a surprising response on Monday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) suggestion that he testify before the House committees probing impeachment — he’ll consider it.
In a tweet thread Monday morning, Trump insulted Pelosi and CBS’ “Face the Nation” — calling the Sunday show “DEFACE THE NATION” — before suggesting he might be open to providing written testimony to congressional investigators.
“I like the idea and will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” he tweeted
….that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!
