Leading Republicans are condemning Nancy Pelosi for making outrageous claims about President Trump while failing to provide any evidence.
First to call out Pelosi for alleging that Trump was orchestrating a “cover-up” was Senate Majority Whip John Thune.
“That is major,” Thune told the Washington Examiner. “That’s blowing things up around here. That’s kind of like dropping the nuclear bomb to come out and accuse somebody of committing a crime, and not having anything to back it up.”
Thune further added his support to President Trump echoing the sentiment that, “It’s not a good atmosphere in which to do anything that requires bipartisan cooperation.”
Sen. John Cornyn also spoke out on the matter, sympathizing with Trump over the abusive treatment the president receives from Democrats while encouraging cooperation.
“Ms. Pelosi continues to slander him, and I can understand why he’s not happy. Sometimes tempers flare around here and emotions get pretty high, but in the end, we’ve got work to do, and I think the best thing we can do for the people we work for is to make progress where we can. But that was fairly dramatic this morning,” Cornyn said.
As the figure head of the Democrats, Pelosi should really consider putting more thought into the charges she levels at President Trump.
