Pelosi: I Am ‘More Concerned’ With Trump’s Policies Than Investigating Porn Star Allegations (The Washington Free Beacon)

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday said it is not a priority of Congress to investigate whether President Donald Trump slept with a porn star over a decade ago.

Pelosi talked about multiple issues during her weekly press briefing, including the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program, guns, and an inquiry into whether Pelosi believes Congress should investigate Trump for allegedly sleeping with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006 while married to his current wife Melania.

On the question of Daniels, Pelosi said she is "more concerned" about Trump's policies.

"Let me just say that I am more concerned about the president's policies, which undermine the financial security of America's working families," Pelosi said. "For example, his budget, cutting Medicare, cutting Medicaid, cutting Social Security disability benefits, cutting housing and urban development, cutting food stamps, cutting education. That's what Congress should get involved with."
