‘President conduct could be impeachable’

Washington: The top Democrat in the US Congress charged on Wednesday that President Donald Trump could have committed an “impeachable” offence by ignoring congressional subpoenas, likening it to the “cover-up” that brought down former president Richard Nixon.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had earlier provoked an angry denial from Trump after accusing him of engaging in a cover-up of the probe into his alleged collusion with Russia. “This is why I think the president was so steamed off this morning,” she said at a Democratic event in Washington. “Because the fact is in plain sight in the public domain: this president is obstructing justice and he’s engaged in a cover-up. “And that could be an impeachable offence,” she said to applause.
