Pelosi: les faits reprochés à Trump pourraient justifier une procédure de destitution

Donald Trump a nié mercredi s'être livré à toute dissimulation sur les conclusions de la vaste enquête russe, ce dont l'accusent les démocrates, s'exprimant sur un ton outré lors d'une conférence de presse convoquée à la hâte.

Les démocrates ont encore accru la pression sur la Maison Blanche mardi en convoquant au Congrès une proche de Donald Trump, les voix appelant à lancer une procédure de destitution contre le président républicain se faisant plus insistantes au sein du parti. Celle-ci l'avait peu avant accusé d'être "engagé dans une opération de dissimulation".

La commission des Finances de la Chambre des représentants ainsi que la commission du Renseignement avaient soumis aux banques allemande et américaine une demande de documents concernant l'ancien promoteur immobilier et son groupe, la Trump Organization.

Partagée des millions de fois sur les réseaux sociaux, y compris, brièvement, par l'avocat de Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani, cette vidéo a été ralentie à environ 75% de sa vitesse normale pour lui donner une élocution pâteuse, selon une analyse des journalistes de l'AFP.

Mais le débat a pris une nouvelle ampleur après de nouveaux refus de l'administration Trump cette semaine de coopérer avec leurs enquêtes parlementaires.

Au point que plusieurs démocrates, dont Nancy Pelosi, affirment que Donald Trump -habile "animal politique" qui brigue en 2020 un second mandat- pousse en direction d'une procédure de destitution qui nuirait probablement aux démocrates dans les urnes.

Infrastructures, mais aussi budgets ou réformes: la guerre entre démocrates et le républicain menace désormais de bloquer toute initiative dans un Congrès divisé.

Dans son rapport final, rendu public à la mi-avril, le procureur Mueller a fait savoir qu'il n'avait pas rassemblé de preuves d'une entente entre Moscou et l'équipe de campagne de Donald Trump pendant la présidentielle de 2016.

Forts de leur majorité à la Chambre, les démocrates multiplient donc les investigations parlementaires pour suivre cette piste. Des lois qui sont vouées à s'échouer sur un Sénat républicain.

Mais même chez les réticents, comme le candidat à la présidentielle Bernie Sanders, l'idée semble faire son chemin.

Sur Twitter, Donald Trump a enfoncé le clou, évoquant une "chasse aux sorcières", qui fait "perdre du temps, de l'argent et de l'énergie" au peuple américain.

"Malheureusement, le président ne semble s'inquiéter que de son propre emploi", a taclé Nancy Pelosi dans une lettre aux élus démocrates.

Mais le lendemain, devant la presse, Donald Trump a assuré à neuf reprises avoir été "extrêmement calme" lors de la réunion avortée avec les démocrates.

"Nous pouvons révéler les faits aux Américains à travers nos enquêtes, et cela peut nous amener vers un moment où une destitution serait inévitable, ou non".

Après un premier vote par la chambre haute début mai, la chambre basse du Parlement de cet Etat, bastion démocrate, a à son tour adopté le texte, a confirmé une porte-parole de l'Assemblée new-yorkaise.

"Les démocrates n'aiment pas la conclusion de l'enquête Mueller - pas de collusion, pas de complot, pas d'entrave à la justice, et veulent tout reprendre, bien que ce soit inutile et coûteux", a ajouté la Maison Blanche.
