WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump denounced House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for opening a sweeping new investigation Wednesday into Trump’s foreign business dealings and finances. Undeterred from the president’s warning to Congress during his State of the Union address Tuesday to nix “ridiculous partisan investigations,” Schiff announced the new probe the next day. It will focus on the extent of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and whether “any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates,” according to Schiff’s statement. Trump called Schiff a “political hack” and the new probe “unlimited presidential harassment” in a tweet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters Wednesday that Trump’s statements during his State of the Union address amounted to “threats” that didn’t belong on the House floor.

    And now Pelosi is making her talk show rounds because most talk shows are liberal.

    I imagine they will find an "actor" to come forward and accuse Trump of something. Not surprising. Pelosi has made it no secret that she did not want Trump to be Pres. She continually yelled "impeach Trump" until she knew she would be the speaker and then she told everyone to stop saying the "i" word. 

    He should sue Pelosi for defamation of character. At this point I don't believe ANYTHING Pelosi says is true. 

    You don't call someone guilty for 2 years while looking for evidence. According to our justice system you are supposed to find EVIDENCE FIRST. Pelosi has had Trump's scaffolding and noose waiting for 2 years. Now she is just trying to find a way to get him there.  I just wonder how she will make Pence follow.

    Trump is guilty of winning the election away from Hillary. They promised her the presidency. She didn't even think she had to work to get it. She was reluctantly shoved there. Ok, ok, I have to be nice to all the little people. Ok, I'll make nice. Evil grin.

    A new resolution should be put forth to officially change the name of the Democratic Party, since they are vehemently opposed to democracy whenever they lose.  Possible new names might be the Undemocratic Party, Socialist Party or an old time favorite, the Know Nothings.

    Isn't it sad that the criminals, Pelosi's constituents, feel free to pillage. She has given them "get out of jail free" cards.

    LAST NIGHT: Who do you think would be brazen enough to attack cleaning people at night while they are cleaning offices? The guys were caught breaking into their vehicles. When they came out to see about it, the guys chased the cleaning people. They locked themselves in the offices and called for help. The crooks began throwing rocks at the windows & doors of the offices. Obviously they didn't care if they were caught. I heard that someone was caught. Who does that sound like to you? You've seen photos of them throwing rocks at police. Pelosi hides them in sanctuary cities. Now tell me why we should give up our guns!

    Arizona is under siege. And Pelosi is their leader.

    Meanwhile Pelosi is going after Trump.
