Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiffs coup on the American people against an elected Presdent continues. Now they are demanding that Trump himself testify’s while the whistleblower is not going to be ordered to testify.

according to

“The president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants. He has every opportunity to present his case,” she said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Pelosi extended the invitation ahead of a jam-packed week of witness testimony in the impeachment inquiry. She said lawmakers would “look forward” to seeing any information from Trump “that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame.”

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer echoed that suggestion.

“If Donald Trump doesn’t agree with what he’s hearing, doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet. He should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath,” Schumer told reporters.

The challenge was paired with Pelosi’s warning not to go after the whistleblower in any way — though Democrats initially had indicated that the whistleblower could testify, only to back off and now urge Trump to testify instead.

“I will make sure he does not intimidate the whistleblower,” Pelosi said. “I told the president you’re in my wheelhouse when you come after the whistleblower.”

On Monday, Trump fired back and accused Democrats of rigging the system.

“This is a great fraud being played out against the American people by the Fake News Media & their partner, the Do Nothing Democrats. The rules are rigged by Pelosi & Schiff, but we are winning, and we will win!” he tweeted.
