Pelosi slams Trump at Trone fundraiser

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strongly criticized President Donald Trump on Sunday at a fundraiser for Sixth District U.S. Rep. David Trone. The fundraiser, held at Gaithersburg High School, drew more than 1,200 people.

Pelosi told attendees that Trump — currently undergoing an impeachment inquiry for urging the Ukrainian government to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden — had “dishonored the oath of office [and] demeaned who we are as a people.”

Trone is running for re-election. Other candidates are Democrat Maxx Bero, a Watkins Mill High School teacher, and Republican Kevin T. Caldwell of Frederick County. Republican state Del. Neil Parrott of Washington County has an exploratory committee to consider running, too. [Maryland Matters]
