Washington — House Democrats announced Monday they have reached a deal with the White House on the trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, bringing President Trump closer to fulfilling a major legislative accomplishment.
“This is a day we’ve all been working to and working for on the path to yes,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California said.
Asked by CBS News’ Nancy Cordes whether it was a coincidence that the trade deal was being announced on the same day that articles of impeachment were unveiled by House Democrats, Pelosi responded, “No, it’s not a coincidence. It’s just that as we get to the end of a session, there have to be some decisions made. The timetable for impeachment is the timetable for the committees, and that came to an end with the hearing yesterday.”
