In a Monday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) weighed in on the possibility of President Donald Trump refusing to leave the White House if he loses to presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Pelosi about Trump’s interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace and said the president did not say one way or the other if he would leave.
According to Pelosi, Trump is leaving the White House, “whether he knows it yet or not,” even if he “has to be fumigated.”
“The fact is whether he knows it yet or not, he will be leaving,” Pelosi told Brzezinski. “Just because he might not want to move out of the White House doesn’t mean we won’t have an inauguration ceremony to inauguration a duly elected President of the United States. And you know, I’m second in line to the presidency just last week I had my regular continuation of government briefing. This might interest you because I say to them, this is never going to happen, God willing it never will, but there is a process. It has nothing to do with the certain occupant of the White House doesn’t feel like moving and has to be fumigated out of there because the presidency is the presidency. It’s not geography or location so, so much for him. I wouldn’t spend so much time on it that’s a victory for him because then we’re not talking about your first, more important subject, which is, what are we going to do to stop this vicious virus that is making an assault on our health, again, our lives, our livelihood and life of our democracy.”

During Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reacted to former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe revealing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein conducted a push to remove President Donald Trump from office.
Gingrich called the plot “one of the great scandals in American history.”
“[I]f you look at things like McCabe and this whole FBI thing, which is, I think, one of the great scandals in American history,” Gingrich argued to host John Catsimatidis. “The whole idea that your most important law enforcement institution had people who were actively plotting in effect to overturn the elected president of the United States. The more we hear from McCabe and Comey on this, the clearer it is that this was an agency that was so corrupt and so out of control that I think if Hillary Clinton had won, there is no telling what would have happened to our freedom.”
Gingrich added that his hope is new Attorney General William Barr will look into how the FBI treated Hillary Clinton and her staff.”
“I’m hoping that [Barr] is going to look very carefully at everything going back to 2015 and the whole treatment of the Clintons and the treatment of the Clintons’ staff,” he said. “I mean, all these different pieces out there, the more we learn about them the sicker they are. … If it is true, as McCabe and others suggest, that Rosenstein was involved in a serious conversation about whether or not to apply the amendment to take away the president’s authority, I don’t see any way you could avoid dismissing him.”
