‘He Does Not Know Right From Wrong’: Pelosi Criticizes Trump’s Oppo Research Comments

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi condemned President Donald Trump on Thursday after his comments a day earlier about opposition research from foreign actors.

“Yesterday, once again, the president gave us evidence that he does not know right from wrong,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “It’s a very sad thing — very sad thing that he does not know right from wrong.”

WATCH:

Her comments were in reference to an interview Wednesday with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. During the sit-down, Trump said he would not necessarily notify the FBI if a foreign entity offered to provide him with information on his political opponent.

“I think maybe you do both,” Trump said in response to a question on whether he’d listen to the information or notify the FBI. “I think you might want to listen. There’s nothing wrong with listening … If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI.”

Pelosi said the House’s ongoing investigations into Trump are not politically motivated but have “everything to do with patriotism.” She also reiterated her belief that the president was involved in a criminal coverup.

“The Mueller report showed obstruction of justice at least 10, perhaps 11 places,” Pelosi said. “But for the president to be so cavalier to disregard, to be indifferent to law and any sense of ethics about who we are as a country, to say he would invite foreign intervention further. The intelligence community, with great confidence, has put forth that the Russians interfered in our election — that’s an assault on our democracy.”

“This president says it’s a hoax. He takes an oath to protect and defend the constitution, but I guess it doesn’t include him … to be held accountable, to obey the law,” she continued before revealing legislation Democrats are working on to require campaigns to report foreign offers of assistance.

“Shouldn’t even, I mean, it’s so self-evident as a matter of ethics, but we’ll have to codify it. Mandating a duty to report for campaigns reporting foreign interventions in our elections. Protecting our elections with paper ballots,” Pelosi said. “That’s our election security bill that [Democratic California Rep.] Zoe Lofgren is working on.”

Despite calling Trump’s comments “appalling,” the speaker stopped short of proceeding with any impeachment hearings.

“What we want to do is have a methodical approach to the path that we are on,” Pelosi said. “This will be included in that — but not any one issue is going to trigger, oh now we’ll go do this.

  • Maurice says:

    Dems are only worried that even more dirt on their corrupt activities might come to light, and it soon will anyway!!!

  • RP says:

    Why aren’t they talking about Hillary paying 12 million dollars to an English spy to draw up the fake Russian collusion story? They used the same fake story to spy on Trump, his family, and campaign. The Democrat party did more to interfere in the election, that did the Russians.

    Why isn’t she talking about Obozo using taxpayer dollars to defeat Netanyahu in Israel? Why aren’t they saying something about Obozo threatening England against leaving the EU? Aren’t those two things interference in other countries elections?

  • thorton snurd says:

    To all the DemoCommunist (There’re no Democrats) Party of America not one of you have s moral leg to stand on. You say it is alright to kill a baby all the way to even after birth that is immoral, you want to kill a living child born after botched Abortions, you want to make it alright for a Male to compete in female sports, and you want Open Borders and an America without Sovereignty oh no you really don’t know the difference between right and wrong!!! You take only a part of Donald Trump’s answer. I would listen and if I believed the report from the Foriegn Government to be valid I would turn it over to the Justice Department, the F. B. I. and the Intellegence Community, and if I believed it not valid I would drope it then and there. So President Trump was answering honestly while you people are lying about his response you EVIL Character Assassins are the Immoral the Degenerate, the Reprobate, and the Deranged not Trump!!!

    • John Bloxson Jr. says:

      I found a couple typographical errors to correct sorry it is much easier to type on the lap top then a phone key board. Here are my corrections first One you do not have a moral leg to stand on. Second One, You want to make it alright to kill a living baby after a botched Abortion. Third One You want to allow a Biologically Male to be able to compete with Women in Womens Sports, that would end Womans Sports, and not help Women.Fourth One if I found the Imformation to be Valid I would turn it over to the Justice Department, The F. B. I. and the Intellegence Community and if I found it to be not valid I would Drop it.

    This woman is a pathological liar, corrupt and criminal. She is the LAST person who should be pointing any fingers. And now, she endorses blatant genocide (aborting, i.e. murdering) full-term babies. She is a psychotic freak and needs to be removed from office.

  • Sandy says:

    So I guess it was ok for Hillary to use Russia for op-ed.
    When when when are the democrats going to settle their asses down and go to work improving the lives of the American citizens they were voted into office to represent?
    PS: #LUSH

  • Bonnie says:

    Wow! Ms. Pelosi also swears an oath to uphold our Constitution, but has been doing the opposite by leading her fellow members of Congress to ignore it by refusing to protect America from the invasion of illegals across our southern border. She and those like her should spend our taxes protecting us by building the wall, instead of spending $ billions of our money to benefit other nations…and however it will wind up being used. What she says doesn’t make sense, and kinda looks like she’s a medicated puppet directing corrupt anti-American Constitution mentality in our Congress. Yep! Kinda like Nero fiddling while Rome burned. Pres. Trump appears to be trying to put out the fire in order to save America.

  • Randy Sieg says:

    Hey Nasty, what about the actions of Crooked Hillary, Jezebel paid for foreign information put it into a false dossier & used it to engineer a hoax on President Trump. Yet you have the nerve to accuse the president of a cover-up, ethics violations & needing to be held accountable under the law. America is tired of your endless harassment of President Trump & his family. Nancy, you are the disgrace, you “Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty”… a quote from Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister for Hitler’s Third Reich. This is exactly your strategy & that of the DNC. You & your liberal goons are throwing up a smoke screen of indignation to make yourselves appear to be victims… You do nothing but obstruct, you were elected to office to represent the people of the United States, yet what you have done instead is to vastly increase your personal wealth… You, Crooked Hillary & the swamp are disgusting scum bags…
