Souza's post comes shortly Pelosi accused Trump of a "cover up" following a special meeting of House Democrats focused on ongoing congressional probes into the president's administration. 

"We do believe that it is important to follow the facts, we believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States, and we believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up, in a cover up," Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill.


The comments came just before Pelosi, Senate Minority Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerWhite House asking Congress for .5 billion to fight coronavirus Hillicon Valley: Agencies play catch-up over TikTok security concerns | Senate Dems seek sanctions on Russia over new election meddling | Pentagon unveils AI principles Senate Democrats urge Trump administration to impose sanctions on Russia for election interference MORE (D-N.Y.) and other Democratic lawmakers went to meet with Trump on a possible $2 trillion infrastructure package. Trump cut off those talks following Pelosi's comments, condemning Democrats and stating that he would not work with them until their investigations have concluded.

Trump denied being involved in a cover up, telling reporters in the White House Rose Garden, "I don’t do cover-ups." 

Their comments come amid rising calls among Democrats for an impeachment inquiry into the president as the administration continues to stonewall their probes and issue a near-total refusal to respond to congressional subpoenas.

Souza, a frequent critic of Trump, published a photography book last year contrasting the Trump administration with that of Obama's.
