President Trump blasted congressional Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an appearance on Fox News Wednesday night, saying she “hands out subpoenas like they’re cookies.”
Trump made the statement in a wide-ranging interview on Sean Hannity’s 9 p.m. show on the cable network.
“She hands out subpoenas like they’re cookies,” Trump of Pelosi.
“They fight a dirtier fight. The Democrats fight a dirtier fight,” Trump added.
His statement comes the same day former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee as part of their ongoing probe into alleged obstruction of justice by the Trump administration.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump bemoaned the fact Democrats had subpoenaed Hicks for the testimony.
“So sad that the Democrats are putting wonderful Hope Hicks through hell, for 3 years now, after total exoneration by Robert Mueller & the Mueller Report,” Trump tweeted Wednesday.
During his interview on Hannity, Trump accused Democrats on the committee of leaking photos of Hicks while she testified behind closed doors. He provided no specifics, however, about that allegation.
