Report: Trump Will ‘Strongly Consider’ Pelosi’s Offer To Testify Before Intel. Committee

President Trump may soon find himself before the House Intelligence Committee as he said he will “strongly consider” testifying himself.

The idea was initially pitched by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said Trump should come before the House investigators directly to testify or submit written answers as a part of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

“Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?) Speaker of the House, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt,” Trump said in a pair of tweets.

“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!” he added.

ABC News reports the invitation comes as Pelosi flips due process and the impeachment investigation on its head—she claims Trump has to prove his own innocence:

Pelosi said in an interview with CBS News’ “Face The Nation” this past weekend that if the president has information that would prove his innocence in the ongoing impeachment inquiry, he should make that information known. Pelosi said if the president wants to sit for in person testimony or submit written answers, investigators would welcome that opportunity.

“The president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants to … if he wants to take the oath of office or he could do it in writing. He has every opportunity to present his case,” Pelosi said.

Trump, in another tweet, added: “Nancy Pelosi just stated that ‘it is dangerous to let the voters decide Trump’s fate.’ @FoxNews In other words, she thinks I’m going to win and doesn’t want to take a chance on letting the voters decide. Like Al Green, she wants to change our voting system. Wow, she’s CRAZY!”
