President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that he can't proceed with a discussion about infrastructure spending while under investigation. Trump and the Democratic leaders were scheduled to discuss building on a preliminary agreement for $2 trillion of infrastructure spending. At an unscheduled Rose Garden press conference, Trump decried the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and said he had the most transparent administration in history. Earlier, Pelosi said Trump engaged in a cover up.
