Washington – The president of the lower house Nancy Pelosi promised to protect the informant whose complaint unleashed the political trial investigation against President Donald Trump.
Pelosi said in a televised interview on Sunday on the "Face the Nation" program that "I will make sure" that Trump "does not intimidate" the complainant.
She also rejected the president's accusations that the process is unfair, saying that he "has the opportunity to present his case" and may appear before the commission to "say all the truths he wants to say."RELATED
The comment came after Trump criticized the former US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, on Twitter while she testified before the commission last week – which caused allegations of intimidation.
Ohio Rep. Mike Turner, a Republican, told CNN's "State of the Union" program that the tweets were "unfortunate" but "certainly not witness intimidation."
