President Trump is “obviously under a great deal of duress,” Dem. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says of Trump’s letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Erin Burnett talked with Schumer about witnesses he wants to call, like Mick Mulvaney, before bringing up the president’s letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in which POTUS decried impeachment saying things like “You forced our Nation through turmoil and torment over a wholly fabricated story, illegally purchased from a foreign spy by Hillary Clinton and the DNC in order to assault our democracy. Yet, when the monstrous lie was debunked and this Democrat conspiracy dissolved into dust, you did not apologize. You did not recant. You did not ask to be forgiven. You showed no remorse, no capacity for self-reflection. Instead, you pursued your next libelous and vicious crusade—you engineered an attempt to frame and defame an innocent person.”
Burnett read from the letter before asking, “You have known President Trump long before he was president. Where do you think his head is right now?”
Schumer said, “Well, he’s obviously under a great deal of duress, but if he thinks he can bully Nancy Pelosi into backing off, he’s with the wrong customer. The amazing thing about President Trump as president and before, the very things he does he accuses others of doing. Bully? This is the most bullying president we have ever had. Accusing people of things? This president accuses people of things all the time, every day. So he ought to look into the mirror.”
After I saw this I was immediately reminded of the debate about whether or not Nancy Pelosi should return as Speaker when the Dems won back control of the House.
Now with benefit of hindsight could any of you imagine a better person to be leading this impeachment process?
Nancy Pelosi has eaten Donald Trump’s lunch for him repeatedly and has demonstrated to the world what a capable woman in a position of power can accomplish.
I truly think that Nancy Pelosi scares the shit out of Donald Trump and that in some ways she is getting payback for what was done to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
