House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed into Donald Trump when she took questions on how the president is open to taking dirt from foreign nationals to use against his political opponents during her weekly press conference Thursday morning.
Speaking to reporters, the U.S. House of Representatives' top Democrat said her caucus would continue to investigate Trump and his administration through their various committees, one day after Trump said he would take information from foreign sources on any political opponents and might not contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"My stock goes up every time he attacks me, so what can I say, but let's not spend too much time on that because that's his victory, the diverter-in-chief, the diverter-of-attention-in-chief".
Trump lashed out at her in response to that comment during a Fox News interview from the Normandy American Cemetery in France, calling her "a nasty, vindictive, disgusting person".
"I'm done with him", Pelosi said while being interviewed on stage at the 2019 Fiscal Policy event hosted by Peter G. Peterson Foundation.
For part of Trump's presidency, he generally refrained from trash-talking Pelosi as he does many others, but that ended in recent weeks as Democrats intensified their investigations of the president and discussed possibly impeaching him. How serious are they? "Are they criminal? Many people think they are", she said.
The Hill noted Pelosi was also in France to commemorate the D-Day anniversary.
But she maintained she doesn't criticize the president while she is on congressional delegate trips overseas. "We have plenty of time to do that when we're back home", she said.
When pressed on whether she believes the President has committed crimes in office, Pelosi said special counsel Robert Mueller's report demonstrates evidence of obstruction of justice, but then declined to talk about it further.
