WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s comments this week weighing in on the trial of his longtime associate Roger Stone amount to political interference in the judiciary and are “an abuse of power,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday.

“This is an abuse of power — that the president is again trying to manipulate federal law enforcement to serve his political interest,” Pelosi said at a news conference. “This is not what America is about. It is so wrong.”
