Steve Scalise reacts to Democrats, the ‘party of impeachment,’ considering new Trump investigations
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise reacted Monday to reports that Democrats are considering another investigation involving President Trump, this time in regard to his tweet about Republican consultant Roger Stone’s sentence.
Attorney General William Barr called for a reduction in the initially recommended sentence for Stone, who was convicted of lying to Congress and intimidating a witness, around the same time the president tweeted a criticism of the longer sentence.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., claimed Trump was acting “above the law” and “trying to manipulate” federal law enforcement for his own political interests.
“The Story” host Ed Henry noted to Scalise, R-La., that he predicted calls for investigations into the president would continue into the election, despite the president’s acquittal on impeachment charges.
