Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, in an interview on CBS News’ ‘Face the Nation,’ said President Trump is doing more damage to the country than former President Richard Nixon.

“The President could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants to,” Pelosi said.

“He has every opportunity to present his case,” Pelosi told moderator Margaret Brennan. “But it’s really a sad thing. I mean, what the President did was so much worse than even what Richard Nixon did, that at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue.”

Mr. President, please I beg you, I implore you, I strongly suggest you do not fall for this trap. May I remind you of Scooter Libby and the following:

Most, if not all of these crimes are commonly called “process crimes, meaning they happened to be associated with Mr. Trump who was and is still the intended target. The Democrats, in my opinion, have no moral compass and are consumed with hatred for Donald Trump and will do or say anything to get a conviction of something.
