Nancy Pelosi: Trump’s Use Of Executive Privilege Would Be “Very Incriminating”

<> on June 2, 2017 in Washington, DC.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put her foot in her mouth yet again with a statement on the potential for Trump’s use of the executive privilege option to block Comey’s testimony before the Senate.

Pelosi called the use of the option “very incriminating.”

Check it out (via CNN):

“There’s a possibility of obstruction of justice, flirting with it, in any event, coming out of the White House,” Pelosi, appearing on ABC’s “The View,” said about a reported discussion between President Donald Trump and Comey earlier this year about the Justice Department’s investigation about Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

She continued:

Pelosi added, “I think if the President were to say he shouldn’t testify, that would be very incriminating for the President.”

While Trump has decided not to block the testimony, it would’ve been entirely within his power to do so.

President Obama used executive privilege during his presidency, to stop a testimony related to the ATF gunwalking scandal.

The former House Speaker was also confronted by Joy Behar on The View on Monday Morning over her unwillingness to invoke the term, “impeachment,” when talking about the President.

“When that word comes up, I always say … anything you do has to be based on data, evidence, facts,” Pelosi said. “So you can speculate, but it’s got to be the law and the facts and how they match up.”

Pelosi has had Americans scratching their heads over a few other statements in recent months.

Just last week, Pelosi commented that it didn’t make sense Trump visited Saudi Arabia first on his foreign tour because it’s “not even alphabetical.”
