House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded CNN’s Jake Tapper for asking her about impeachment Thursday, even though she announced earlier in the day that she plans to move forward with the inquiry.
Pelosi, a California Democrat, said that during a press conference that she would push the House to continue bringing forward articles of impeachment regarding President Donald Trump. Just hours later, she got annoyed when Tapper began to ask about the news.
“Would you be willing to testify if it meant that people you want to hear from such as Mick Mulvaney, the acting chief of staff, or John Bolton, the former national security adviser, would also have to testify?” Tapper asked during the “CNN Town Hall” Thursday. “If there’s some sort of deal cut, would you be willing to do so?”
“Can we not have any more questions about impeachment?” Pelosi replied, after saying that those people should testify because they’ve been asked to do so. She added that she perhaps she could tell viewers “about Spain.”
Tapper continued to note that he had just “one more question” regarding impeachment for Pelosi.
Earlier in the day, Pelosi snapped at a reporter during the press conference who asked her if she hates the president. Pelosi said that she doesn’t “hate anyone” and cited her Catholic upbringing as she argued.
“And as a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone,” Pelosi said. “I was raised in a way that is full of, a heart full of love and always pray for the President. And I still pray for the President.”
