House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of a cover-up on Monday after he lashed out at Democrats in tweets calling his impending Senate impeachment trial a "witch-hunt."

"In the Clinton impeachment process, 66 witnesses were allowed to testify including 3 in the Senate trial, and 90,000 pages of documents were turned over," Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted in a direct response to the president. "Trump was too afraid to let any of his top aides testify & covered up every single document. The Senate must #EndTheCoverUp."

Earlier Monday, Trump accused Pelosi...........................


Trump and his allies have called for testimony from former Vice President Joe Biden the president's request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter lies at the heart of the impeachment inquiry and from House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who led the House inquiry. But Democrats have said those witnesses are irrelevant to the question of whether Trump abused his power, which is the charge in one article of impeachment. The other is obstructing Congress' investigation into his dealings with Ukraine.

Democrats have called for Senate testimony from top White House officials, including acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton, whom they say have firsthand knowledge of Trump's actions regarding Ukraine. Pelosi has withheld the impeachment articles from the Senate for weeks in what she says is a bid to ensure a fair process. But, under pressure from within her own party as well as from Republicans, she is preparing for the House to transmit the articles, which would allow the Senate trial to begin..................................

3. IIRC, Clinton defended himself in the real Republican witch-hunt of 1998.

Yeah, Clinton lied about a consensual sex act with an adult. His reasons were understandable. His affair was not in the national interest and the Republicans knew it. So why doesn't Trump defend himself? Must be either a coward or guilty of the charges. And these crimes are against the national interests of this country, not your marriage vow. Times have changed when it's OK to elect pussey-grabbing assholes as your nominee. Fuck this Party.

Given Newt Gingrich and Bob Livingstone's outrageous hypocrisy of conducting a moral inquisition when they were engaging in their own sordid sexual infidelities. Fuck Republicans. They blew their honesty a long time ago.

And lets not forget the incredible waste of taxpayer's dollars that resulted in no criminal/civil charges in the Clinton/Benghazi "investigation". But it did accomplish the character assassination that they intended and got Trump close enough to steal the election in the electoral college..

Oh yeah, the IG said there was no basis to bring charges of the Clinton Foundation. Unlike the self-dealing operation of the Trump Foundation.

The Clintons are the most exonerated couple in American political history.
