The latest on the Trump impeachment inquiry: Live updates – CNN
President Trump this morning continues to focus on impeachment on his Twitter account.
“The Do Nothing Democrats are Con Artists, only looking to hurt the Republican Party and President,” he tweeted. “Their total focus is 2020, nothing more.”
Some context: President Trump has repeatedly claimed Democratic lawmakers will not work on legislation as they push forward with the impeachment inquiry.
However, last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she hopes Democrats will still be able to work together with President Trump on items in the Democratic legislative agenda, including prescription drug legislation and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, despite the impeachment inquiry.
When asked how Democrats can work with the President amid the impeachment inquiry, Pelosi responded that “they have nothing to do with each other,” adding that Democrats while have a responsibility to uphold the Constitution, “we also have a responsibility to get the job done for the American people.”
