House Speaker Nancy Pelosi side-eyed Donald Trump on Thursday morning at the weekly Democratic leadership press conference, explaining the meaning of the term "exculpatory" to the president and inviting him to provide any such evidence if it exists.
question: But when we hear--we see the hearing yesterday, a lot of questions about impeachment. We talk about three distinct things, bribery, abuse of power, things we could go into, articles of impeachment, why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu is going on?
HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: Well, all this milieu is a seeking of the truth. It's called an inquiry. And if the president has something that it--is exculpatory, Mr. President, that means you have anything that shows your innocence, then he should make that known and that's part of the inquiry. And so far, we haven't seen that, but we welcome it. And that's what an inquiry's about.
