U.S. House of Representatives Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, on Wednesday said President Donald Trump was moving closer to impeachment with his effort to thwart congressional subpoenas and obstruct lawmakers’ efforts to oversee his administration.
“Every single day the president is making the case” and “he’s becoming self-impeachable,” Pelosi said in an interview with the Washington Post.
Trump on Wednesday asserted executive privilege over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and its underlying investigative materials, escalating the battle with the Democrats on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee.
The move came shortly before the House Judiciary Committee was to vote to hold Attorney-General, William Barr, in contempt for defying a congressional subpoena to hand over the full unredacted report.
The Judiciary Committee is one of number of committees in the Democratic-controlled House that are investigating Trump and his administration on multiple fronts.
The investigations include White House security clearances and Trump’s personal and business dealings.
