This morning, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff held a press conference:

Obviously one major topic of discussion was the House Dems’ fixation on impeachment, but Pelosi wanted to make it clear that Democrats would like to do other things, and would also appreciate it if Trump would cooperate with them:
Pelosi opens her presser with Schiff by talking at length about… prescription drug costs, infrastructure, and farmers. She says she hopes Trump will work with Dems on these things, even as they try to impeach him. Okay.

Nancy Pelosi says she hopes Democrats and the White House can "renew our conversations about infrastructure."

Pelosi asked how she plans to work with policy agenda items with Trump while actively trying to impeach the man:
"The two have nothing to do with each other."

We’re guessing they will have something to do with each other.

The Democrats’ total obsession with impeachment could be changing some minds, and not in the way Pelosi would like.

Pelosi also said the Democrats intend to treat Trump fairly, which probably sparked many spit takes around the country.
