WASHINGTON, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A day before President Donald Trump addresses a joint session of Congress, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer will offer a prebuttal to the President's speech at a National Press Club Newsmaker news conference at 2 p.m., Mon., Feb. 27, in the Club's First Amendment Lounge. National Press Club President Jeff Ballou will serve as the moderator.
Pelosi has led the House Democrats since 2003 and was the first woman elected to be Speaker of the House; Schumer became Democratic leader in January with the retirement of Sen. Harry Reid.
The two top Democrats have supported an independent investigation of the intelligence community's findings that Russia intervened in the U.S. election to help elect Trump, have been critical of the president's refusal to release his income tax returns, and have objected to several of his Cabinet nominees and executive orders.
The National Press Club is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C. This news conference is open to credentialed media and NPC members, free of charge. No advance registration is required.
