Pelosi Calls Trump ‘Existential Threat’ to Democracy

Tuesday at the “Time 100 Summit” in New York City, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Trump’s administration is “an existential threat” to our democracy.

“We now see the administration engaged in stonewalling of the facts coming to the American people,” Pelosi said. “They want to sue the Oversight Committee, Elijah Cummings, for making a request for testimony. They want to obstruct any subpoenas that come down for information. So this is a moment in our history.

“It’s not about politics, it’s about patriotism. It’s an existential threat, this administration, to our democracy, in terms of our Constitution,” she added.
