Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi accused the Trump administration of “covering up” a phone call between the President of the United States and the leader of Ukraine Thursday; hours after opening an official impeachment inquiry.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., responded Thursday to allegations that the Trump White House sought to limit access to the written record of a now-controversial call between the president and Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky by calling it ‘a cover-up’ — suggesting the Democratic caucus will plow ahead with its impeachment inquiry,” reports Fox News.
“When you have a system for electronic storage that is specifically not used and you have something that is politically helpful for the president and you hide it someplace else, that is a cover-up,” charged Pelosi.
The President firing back at Democrats on social media; saying “stock markets will crash” if far-left lawmakers move forward on impeachment proceedings.
“If they actually did this the markets would crash. Do you think it was luck that got us to the best Stock Market and Economy in our history. It wasn’t!” posted Trump on Twitter Thursday morning.

The President made similar comments earlier Thursday; accusing the Democrats of attempting to “destroy” the GOP.
“THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND ALL THAT IT STANDS FOR. STICK TOGETHER, PLAY THEIR GAME, AND FIGHT HARD REPUBLICANS. OUR COUNTRY IS AT STAKE!” posted Trump on Twitter.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke with reporters at the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday; saying he had a “great phone call” with President Trump and “there was no pressure.”
“Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during a meeting in New York with President Trump, told reporters Wednesday that he was not pressured to investigate the Biden family during their now-controversial phone call over the summer,” reports Fox News.
“Nobody pushed me,” Zelensky said.
“We had a great phone call,” Zelensky added. “It was normal.”
“In other words, there was no pressure and you know there was no pressure,” added President Trump.
