Washington - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is suggesting an “intervention” with President Donald Trump after he vowed to not work with Congress unless Democrats stop investigating him.

The California Democrat described a pattern of “stunts” by Trump to change the subject amid the investigations and unflattering news about him. On Wednesday, Trump stalked out of a meeting with Democrats that had been set up to talk about how to pay for a $2 trillion package to repair the nation’s roads and bridges.

Pelosi told reporters Thursday at her weekly news conference: “I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country.” And she suggested: “Maybe he wants to take a leave of absence.”

Wednesday’s blow-up between Trump and Democratic congressional leaders came as Trump has refused Democrats’ demand for documents and testimony in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election meddling and contacts with the Trump campaign.

I think that a moratorium on paying taxes, tariffs, fees and any other monies into the government should be enacted by the people until these "representatives" start governing. Moyinhan, Javits, and others must be rolling in their graves at this Congress of immature dolts. This is Rome, boys and girls, Rome when the Senate was a joke, bread and circuses, and the Coliseum were above all governing. We is Rome.

All Trump wants to do is focus on America, and he needs the Legislative branch of government to work with him. But they have diverted virtually all of their energy in a perpetual witch hunt. They have branded him as a criminal, and are generous to donate millions of taxpayer dollars and all of their work time to find a crime. This is completely backwards of any investigation done by law enforcement, where a crime is identified, and then the criminal is sought. This diversion is, at least in the colloquial sense, treasonous. I wish all these Dems would get voted out of office, and forced to retire from politics. Maybe Trump is not an angel, but he can't shine a candle to the evil being perpetrated by the Dems, on him and all of America.

How is trump the moral leper focusing on America? By breaking every norm of decency and every law? How is insulting, berating and threatening others, even in his own party focusing on America? Would you let your own kinder use a toilet mouth lime he has? His pals are fine people nazis, tsar pootin and tyrant un in N Korea. No one believes in him any more.

For the first two years of the orange menuvals reign, he had control of both houses of congress, and the supreme court. Can you list all his many accomplishments during this time outside of his tax break for the corporations and the very rich. The only other one I can think of is the way he coarsened the the discourse in America, and cheapened the Office of the President. Now he seeks to blame the Democrats. Sounds like a five year old. It's always someone elses fault. How can a stable genuis ever admit to a mistake.

Actually she’s not better because she’s caving to all their demands and they are basically running the show while she is just a figure head. If she had any real courage and power, she’d have gotten rid of the anti semites in her party instead of coddling them and letting them run the show.

They came to a meeting for infrastructure and he walked out. Simple as that. There is nothing preventing Trump from governing if he lets his lawyers handle his cases and he concentrates on his job. He just can't stay focused amidst all of the drama that he had a hand in creating.

1) by trying to pass an infrastructure deal.
2) defeating ISIL
3) China trade talks
4) Nafata talks
5)Getting tough on Iran.

There are lots more. but when congress will seek to never work with him. When congress is looking to investigate him and block his every move, he can't work in the important stuff this country needs.

How about lets take one week leave of absence of bickering. Put a moratorium on any Trump investigating for one week. For that one week we will unify, work together and pass bills. Can peolsi and dems do that

Nixon and Clinton did. Lincoln did amidst incredible tragedy in his life including losing his son while he was in the White House. FDR did while fighting a war and struggling with polio. Kennedy did while being almost immobile for large parts of the day. You're right, I wouldn't be able to. But I don't pretend to be qualified to be President.

Thats right there ain't nothing happening till 2020. Gald you finally realized that.. Your impeachment dreams are over. He defied odds. He won in 2016, and never got impeached. Barr outsmarted you. Too bad.

Yes your only hope is a 2020 loss. if he wins you are doomed. Don;t forget 2024 the statute of limitations are up.

Funny for someone so critical of congressional investigations, which would not cost nearly as much and would move along much quicker if Trump complied with the law and turned over the subpoenaed documents, you forgot about the latest investigation which Trump and Barr just opened into the origins of the Russian probe. That investigation instigated by Trump comes along with a special delegation of duty to Barr to declassify any documents he wants. So in your world, you are fine with Barr and Trump opening a politically motivated investigation that will cost millions, but you are opposed to Congress doing one of their designated roles, namely oversight. How about just give congress the documents they are legally entitled to get. So far every court has ruled that the tax returns and financial records have to be turned over. We have to wast time waiting for it to go before appeals and possibly the Supreme Court, because Trump can't follow the law.

Btw, my stocks did much better in the first 2.5 years of Obama's presidency than Trump's. Time to replace him with someone competent.

Mueller never exonerated Trump. He simply said that since he can't indict a sitting President he has no basis to find obstruction. This is not the same as clearing of wrongdoing. Further, once Trump is out of office, he can likely be indicted for crimes committed, so he is far from sitting in the clear. Also, once those tax returns comes out, it seems pretty likely that evidence of tax fraud will be found. The IRS audit, assuming his returns were actually audited (which is not certain), is not going to be nearly as thorough as what a proper look into them will be. Ask any CPA who has sat through numerous audits as to how much faith you would put in them to catch tax fraud. I say it is likely he committed tax fraud, as there is a pattern of behavior in the past, with overly aggressive tax valuation strategies and the like. Once a crook, always a crook. Also a billionaire that has a business go bankrupt and can't make it right to the small businesses he hurt, seems a bit selfish to me. Being selfish definitely lends itself to cheating on taxes.

Helping America? Using flawed policies that will crash the economy. Obama brought us out of a major recession using sound economic policies (based on Keynesian economics), Trump took that economy and passed policies to cause it to overheat. It seems good for the short-term but will crash. In simple in a too-fast growing economy the supply-side of things increases too fast to adjust when the demand side eventually slows down or stops growing. When that happens on the supply-side there is no liquidity left and businesses stop spending money (on employees and goods). This creates a cycle where people than have less money so demand goes down and the oversupply becomes a bigger problem. One way to help get out of this issue is to spur demand. So you can give a stimulus, but with massive debt and deficit the ability to give a stimulus is limited. You can also increase the monetary supply, but if like we see the Fed has only minimal impact on interest rates, that is not much an option. Basically, we are on route for a worse economic collapse than last time with less tools left to counter it. Thanks Trump.

Where did you get this mishigas that its congress's designated roles is oversight? This became a new silly norm. Its almost as if congress is our FBI or something. I never heard of such stupidty. its fake news and another lie but you establishment people. The voters elect congressmen/women to legislate and govern. its not for over sight. The over sight part is a small side job/ side mandate.And its over shight of everything int his country whether its bad business practices of industries etc... But when it becomes the primary focus of just investigating the president thats not their mandate. So quit your lies and nonsense.

Congress doesn't deserve all these documents. And they are not entitled to it. We won't give it because yes they will find a gottcha moment. How about congress just take a leave of absence of this witch hunt and start legislating?

What a silly argument re your stock under obama. Stocks were on a fire sale then at very low deflated price.

You predicted a trump bubble bust for two years and it didn't happen. i don't buy your fake news. Nothing is overheated.

Nice torah re supply and demand but its all working out just fine. In fact the tarriffs actually slow down supply. But it strengthens it for the future. Trump never grew any supply side. Trump never gave a stimulus just basic tax fairness.

basically pour economy is stronger and better and your doomsday predictions never happend. Fake fear mongoring
