Donald Trump thanked Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday for saying that impeaching him would be the wrong plan of action.
Trump tweeted: "I greatly appreciate Nancy Pelosi’s statement against impeachment, but everyone must remember the minor fact that I never did anything wrong."
House Speaker Pelosi told The Washington Post on Monday that impeachment would be divisive, and should only be used in the most extreme cases.
"I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before," Pelosi said.
"Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it."
Recently the House Judiciary Committee listed 81 individuals and organizations close to Trump they want documents from.
Robert Mueller’s probe into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia is expected to return its conclusions soon.
Alongside the message of thanks, Trump tweeted: "The Economy and Unemployment are the best ever, Military and Vets are great – and many other successes!"
In the second of two tweets he said: "How do you impeach" … "a man who is considered by many to be the President with the most successful first two years in history, especially when he has done nothing wrong and impeachment is for "high crimes and misdemeanors"?
Critics of the president have argued that the most serious allegations being considered in the Russia probe could meet the "high crimes and misdemeanors" threshold for impeachment.
