In case you missed it earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blew up a scheduled infrastructure meeting at the White House after accusing President Trump of a cover-up.
"We believe the President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up," Pelosi said after a meeting with House Democrats about impeachment Wednesday. "We do believe that it's important to follow the facts. We believe that no one is above the law, including the President of the United States."
Yesterday, she tripled down on her comments and called for Trump officials to stage an intervention with the President. She also said Democrats aren't going to impeach President Trump because "he wants them to."

This isn't a serious argument.
During an interview on Capitol Hill, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham called Pelosi's bluff.

He followed up on Fox and Friends Friday morning, saying Democrats who want to impeach Trump have lost their minds.
