    Hard to believe that the guy who has committed a whole bunch of well documented cover ups would be attempting to cover up anything by attempting to cover up witnesses and documents subpoenaed as part of an investigation.

    Notice Nancy doesn't mention what the coverup actually is, therefore nobody can really challenge her on her statement unless she defines it. If we really want to see what coverups are, we will see once Barrs investigations come out.

    You seem so sure. What if, just what if, they come up empty? I'm not even sure what crimes you're referencing.

    Just like trump and collusion? Well, the Republicans will just have to waste everybody’s time and tax payers money and investigate, investigate, investigate. Then resist, resist, resist!

    I for one would be very pleased as it would mean the integrity of the DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc. wasn't compromised and remains intact.

    So she's covering her *** by not describing the cover-up, keeping the whole thing undercover?

    American politics is like watching 'reality tv train-wreck show' in slow motion.

    Looks like Trump had an exit strategy well before Pelosi claimed Trump was covering anything up.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/22/us/politics/donald-trump-speech-pelosi-schumer.html

    After just three minutes, he left the room before anyone else could speak, the Democrat said. From there, he headed to the Rose Garden, where a lectern had been set up with a sign that said “No Collusion, No Obstruction” and gave statistics intended to show that he had cooperated with the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.

    --

    Mr. Schumer said Mr. Trump’s eruption was hardly spontaneous, noting the preprinted sign on the lectern he used afterward to speak with reporters. Instead, he suggested the president staged it because he had not come up with a way to pay for such an enormous spending package.

    “Hello! There were investigations going on three weeks ago when we met, and he still met with us,” Mr. Schumer said. “But now, when he was forced to say how he would pay for it, he ran away. And he came up with this preplanned excuse.”

    Looks like Mnuchin is too busy trying to help Trump so he has no choice but to delay the $20 Harriet Tubman Bill by 8 years. Lol, no matter where your mind goes with that, it’s so crazy it’s almost funny.

    Now, he said he can’t release the federal tax returns because there’s no underlying reason (he made that up), but also admits he hasn’t seen the memo saying only an EO can override congress’ request for those documents.

    The deception is not very effective but it sure is pervasive and copious.

    Just to belabor the point, a president who is notorious for paying to cover things up, just defended himself by saying "I don't do cover-ups."

    His long-time personal attorney is now in federal prison for covering up a Trump affair (at Trump’s direction), covering up the payoff to cover up that affair (again at Trump’s direction), and covering up Trump’s Moscow business deals (at the direction of Trump’s lawyers and the clear suggestion of Trump himself).

    His meeting was hilarious.... “500 people I let testify”. You don’t get to “let” people testify into an investigation of yourself, not that it started there anyways, this was about Russian meddling. “This whole thing started when I came down the escalator at Trump Tower.” Derrr, of course it did.. geese, imagine that... people care about your past and misdeeds when you’re running for high office. Who’da Thunk.

    And he calls himself the most transparent president in history? Yeah, transparently defying laws and the constitution.
