(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) castigated the Republican-controlled Senate at her press conference on Thursday, saying that “we need to see more evidence” in light of documents provided to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and statements made in the media by Lev Parnas, whom the Washington Post describes as “a former associate of Rudolph W. Giuliani.”

Pelosi said: “The American people have seen the allegations, and they’re allegations. We need to see more evidence taht would be contined in the documentation. So, this is just another avoiding of the facts and the truth on their part. They don’t want to see the documents. They don’t want to hear from eyewitnesses.”

She then said: “We saw a strong case, an infallible, undeniable case of for the impeachment of the president.”

Here is the transcript of the question and Pelosi’s answer when she was asked about the material Parnas provided to the intelligence committee:

Q:  Madam Speaker, what is your response to Senate Republicans who say they shouldn't have to consider new evidence like the Parnas material because it wasn't included in the House investigation?

Speaker Pelosi.  No, it’s – they’re afraid of the truth.  The American people have seen the allegations, and they’re allegations.  We need to see more evidence that would be contained in the documentation.  So, this is just another avoiding of the facts and the truth on their part.  They don't want to see documents.  They don't want to hear from eyewitnesses.  They don't want to – they want to ignore anything new that comes up. 

We saw a strong case, an infallible, undeniable case for the impeachment of the President, so no future president would ever think she or he could get away with what President Trump has been getting away with in his view.  Any further evidence should not be avoided and now it is in the – the ball is in the court of the Senate. 

Public opinion will have a lot to do with this.  Since we passed ours and sent it over, public opinion has grown enormously for seeing witnesses, eyewitnesses and documentation and they'll just have to contend with the public on that.
