Speaker Pelosi on the timing of impeachment and the USMCA:
"No it's not a coincidence: It's that we get to the end of a session and there have to be some decisions made."
Chairman Richard Neal on the same topic:
He said other parties to the deal were "very anxious" to bring it forward.
Asked how Democrats can depict Trump as an existential threat to democracy while working with him on major legislation, Pelosi responds: "I would say that we came a long way from what he originally proposed."
It's not a victory for Trump, Pelosi says: "We're declaring victory for the American worker."
"This is a hemispheric trade agreement. That's how important it is."
After a reporter notes it's a "whiplash morning," Pelosi quips: "The day is young," to laughter.
