Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that President Trump is more than welcome to appear before the Intelligence Committee and testify at the impeachment hearings.
Transcript via CBS’s Face The Nation:
MARGARET BRENNAN: –and then what? Does the President get, as he says, to confront his accuser or get due process?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: What do you mean confront his accuser? Confront the whistleblower?
MARGARET BRENNAN: Presumably, that’s what he means.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Well, I will make sure he does not intimidate the whistleblower. So the President could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants to–
MARGARET BRENNAN: You don’t expect him to do that?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: –if he wants to take the oath of office or he could do it in writing. He has every opportunity to present his case. But it’s really a sad thing. I mean, what the President did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did, that at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue. The Intelligence Committee is leading this part of the inquiry.
