Daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic strategist Christine Pelosi defended her mother's impeachment efforts against President Donald Trump, saying she made a conscious choice not to offer a defense during the House's inquiry.

Pelosi told Martha MacCallum on "The Story" that her mother was serious when she claimed she has been "praying for the president."

"Nancy Pelosi was raised in a Catholic home in Baltimore, and she and my dad, Paul, raised five kids through Catholic school," Christine said of the Speaker.

"She does pray for the president -- prays for him to have an open heart, prays for our country, and prays for people in our community constantly," she continued.

She added that Speaker Pelosi is one of few lawmakers who will speak publicly about faith and prayer.

"We do have to pray for the president, and we have to pray for each other," Pelosi added.

MacCallum asked Pelosi about her mother's statement that impeaching Trump should be conducted under bipartisan circumstances or risk dividing the country, pointing out that the House vote on impeachment showed deep partisan divisions.

"Donald Trump's conduct changed that," Christine Pelosi said.

"The Ukraine phone call that you heard from the whistleblower, and then the bipartisan ... witnesses that came forward and testified as to holding up the [Ukraine aid] money in violation of the law passed by Congress, and then the obstruction of justice," she added.

"So you have obstruction [and] you have abuse of power."

Christine Pelosi claimed Trump continues to be a divisive figure and said that the House rules allow for testimony from the president and vice president under their own volition.

"They chose not to do that," she told MacCallum.

"They can still go to the Senate and do that if Mitch McConnell will allow witnesses."

Last year, Following the failed White House meeting with senior Democrats, which Trump blamed on the Dems' "phony investigations" into him during a surprise presser, Pelosi responded by claiming she would "pray for the president."

In July, Christine, Pelosi ’s daughter admitted that some favorite figures would likely be implicated in the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking case.

Pelosi said that the facts must be followed whether on Republicans or Democrats.

"This Epstein case is horrific, and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated, but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may — whether on Republicans or Democrats," she tweeted.
