House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put her "own selfish political desires" above the needs of Americans by talking about impeachment on Thursday and she does it "over and over again," White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said Friday. 

"She could have talked about USMCA (the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement) and passing it for farmers and ranchers and autoworkers," Gidley said on Fox News' "Overtime Outnumbered." "She could've talked about fixing our infrastructure that is so badly in need of repair. We are lowering prescription drug costs (but) she didn't."

He also said Friday that he would not get ahead of President Donald Trump or the administration's announcement about whether the White House will be involved in House Judiciary Committee hearings next week, but he said the president does welcome a trial in the Senate so he can prove his case. 

"We have seen this as illegitimate," Gidley said. "It is a sham. It doesn't hurt Donald Trump, the Democrats going down this weak impeachment road; it hurts the American people."

Meanwhile, the USMCA is ready for a vote, but Pelosi is "quibbling over language" in it, said Gidley. 

"There are safeguards in there that have never been in that piece of legislation before...we are moving forward with all of those things. Despite Democrats blocking it and doing it because they don't care about anything but trying to attack and take down our president."

Gidley also dismissed reports that there may be some Republicans who will vote in favor of impeachment. 

"We already had a vote on it in the house and in lockstep," he said. "They stood together which they never do because of what this president, the evidence. He's done nothing wrong and that is pretty clear at this point."
