PELOSI: “We’ll continue to go down that path. The decision enables — to enable the Trump Administration’s — I don’t know — I don’t know what they are even saying about it. I hear he’s tweeting one thing and then other people are saying another, but whatever it is it’s not good news for the president of the United States. It is a path that we — we will take. So I put out a statement I don’t see it here. Do we have a copy of a statement? Do we? It’s not here. So — anyway, you don’t need me to give you a piece of paper to have what this statement is. But it took me a little longer to get out here because I wanted to read to the bottom, the end of the decision and chief justice specifically speaks to the fact that the president is not above the law, and that was something that was proclaimed in the decision including two of his recent appointments. The Supreme Court’s ruling related to the president’s financial records is not good news for President Trump. The court has reaffirmed the Congress’ authority to conduct oversight on behalf of the American people as it asks for further information from Congress, Congress’ constitutional responsibility to uncover the truth, specifically related to the president’s Russia connection that he is hiding. The Congress will continue to conduct oversight for the people upholding the separation of powers that is the genius of our Constitution. We will continue to press our case in the lower court. That’s what happened this morning.”
