Trump Claims Pelosi Told Him Dems 'Are Not Looking To Impeach You'

Nancy Pelosi Won't Rule Out Trump Indictment Impeachment

"We had a very, very productive meeting, and we've come a long way", Trump said. Nearly certainly, Trump would be charged with abusing his power, or impeachment articles would be drafted and passed onto the senate, where Republicans would be forced to come to Trump's aid or else finally denounce the party's embarrassment of a leader-unless this rock-solid argument persuaded them otherwise.

Asked whether he had considered declaring a national emergency to build the wall, Trump said: "Yes, I have".

According to Trump, the immigration problem is so dire that he would be able to grant himself emergency powers and, consequently, build the wall "very quickly", thus superseding Congress' decision to block the $5 billion budget request.

Trump is withholding his support for a bill that would fully fund the government until he secures money for the wall.

Nancy Pelosi, then House Minority Leader, listens while U.S. President Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer argue before a meeting at the White House, on December 11, 2018.

Instead, Cooper said he voted "present" in favor of supporting new Democratic leadership.

On the first day of the new session of Congress on Thursday, the House passed a spending bill package that would reopen the government by funding the closed portions through September 30, minus DHS, which would only be funded through February 8.

Trump said multiple times that a "see-through wall made out of steel is far stronger than a concrete wall". But its prospects are grim in the Republican-led Senate, which previously approved similar measures on the floor or in committee but has since fallen in line with Trump's demands for funding for the border wall. "We can call a national emergency because of the security of our country". Asked if declaring a national emergency was a threat hanging over Democrats, Trump said, "I'd never threaten anybody, but I am allowed to do that, yes".

Congress has adjourned until Tuesday, meaning the shutdown will last into next week.

In a December 11 meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, Trump said he would be "proud" to shut the government over the security issue and would not blame Democrats.
