President Trump slammed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s behavior during a high-level meeting regarding Syria Wednesday night; labeling her behavior a “nervous meltdown.”
“Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!” Trump posted on social media.
The President’s post comes days after Pelosi confirmed she will not call a formal vote on the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry.

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday she will not stage a vote on the House floor to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump,” reports The Hill. “The decision came after Democratic leaders, returning to Washington following a two-week recess, had reached out to members of their diverse caucus to gauge the party’s support for such a vote.”
“There’s no requirement that we have a vote, and so at this time we will not be having a vote,” Pelosi told reporters.
The White House sent a letter to Pelosi earlier this month demanding she hold an official vote; claiming any legal challenge will likely be ignored without a formal position on impeachment.
“Last week, White House counsel Pat Cipollone delivered a letter to Pelosi warning that administration officials would not cooperate with requests for documents or witness testimony because they deem the inquiry illegitimate. He cited the Democrats’ refusal to vote to launch the process on the floor — a step that preceded the impeachment investigations into former Presidents Nixon and Clinton,” adds The Hill.
