President Donald Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during an interview with “Meet the Press” that will air on Sunday based on reports that she is considering whether to move forward with impeachment.
He claimed that if Democrats were to move forward with impeachment, it would actually help him win the election:
“I think she feels that I will win much easier, I mean, I’ve been told that by many people. I think I’d win the election easier, but, you know, I’m not sure that I like having it. Look, I did nothing wrong. I was spied on. What they did to me was illegal. It was illegal on the other side. I did nothing wrong. So impeachment is a very unfair thing because nothing that I did was wrong.”
The president also pointed out that the report determined there was no collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
“And if you look at the Mueller report, there was no collusion, this was all about collusion,” Trump said.
While the word “collusion” does not appear in the report, the president claimed that it did not matter what term was used.
“Use the word ‘collusion,’ use the word ‘conspiracy,’ I’ll be honest with you, nobody even mentions Russia anymore since the Mueller report,” Trump said.

As IJR Red reported, during a recent meeting, Pelosi allegedly said, “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”
She continued to say that the Democratic Party had a plan when it came to impeachment.
“Make no mistake, we know exactly what path we’re on,” Pelosi told reporters. “We know exactly what actions we need to take.”
However, Trump recently responded to Pelosi’s comments, using harsh words to describe the lawmaker.
“I’ve tried to be nice to her because I would’ve liked to have gotten some deals done. She’s incapable of doing deals,” Trump told Fox News. “She’s a nasty, vindictive, horrible person.”
While Democrats have not started an impeachment inquiry yet, they have started hearings based on the Mueller report.
