Trump then headed to the Rose Garden, where reporters had gathered with little advance notice.
And Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said wryly of Amash's position, "I don't think it's going to be a trend-setting move".
Pelosi, speaking to reporters after the special impeachment session, said that "we believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up", referring to resistance from the White House to several Democrat-led inquiries in the House of Representatives.
Trump said: "Instead of walking in happily into a meeting, I walk into, look at people that have just said that I was doing a cover-up". In addition, 71% said they rate the economy as excellent or good, but just 48% approved of how Trump handles the economy.
"We have a president that is actively trying to cover up and prevent the American people from getting to the truth, and that is not something I think we can not tolerate", says Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI).

"We're in a very grave moment", said Rep. Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania, and "probably right now are left, with nothing but that we must open an inquiry". "You can go down the investigation track, and you can go down the investment track - or the track of let's get things done for the American people". "But now that he was forced to actually say how he would pay for it, he had to run away".
"It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a President for reasons including criminal behaviour would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct...", DC District Court judge Amit Mehta wrote, citing precedents from the 1800s to Watergate (a Richard Nixon scandal) and Whitewater ( from the Clinton era).
Republicans are not willing to roll back tax cuts from Trump's 2017 tax reform legislation, an idea Democrats who largely opposed that measure have floated as a way of financing the infrastructure plans.
