Nancy Pelosi Announces Launch of Impeachment Inquiry of Donald Trump

The speaker of the United States House of Representatives has launched an official impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. "So bad for our Country!"

The cable networks kept on-screen tallies of Democrats who have called for impeachment on Tuesday. Trump insists he has done nothing wrong.

Jayapal said she expects the committee to move now towards drafting articles of impeachment.

Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tweeted that he had video evidence of "very serious suspected criminality in Ukraine". "Everybody knows it. It's just a Democrat witch hunt".

The Washington Post reported that Pelosi would likely be announcing the formation of a select committee on impeachment amid private talks between leaders on the subject. "No one is above the law", said Pelosi, who had for months been reluctant to embrace an impeachment effort. "This Congress has featured countless investigations, and today's announcement is nothing more than Democrats continuing to put partisan politics ahead of getting real legislation done". "It's absolutely essential that the president be held accountable. Whatever was discussed, even if they spoke about spaceships, I am not going to comment on it, because this was a conversation between two presidents", said Oleksandr Danylyuk, the top official of the body responsible for co-ordinating national security.

Democrats appeared on the brink of formally moving to impeach Donald Trump last night as momentum built over the Ukrainian whistle-blower scandal.

Pelosi said the six congressional committees now investigating Trump would continue with their probes as part of the inquiry.

While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. I believe, I truly believe, the time to begin impeachment proceedings against this president has come.

"If she does that, they say that's a positive for me", he said.
The complaint reportedly centers on Trump and a promise he made during a phone call with a foreign leader.

Earlier, he denied the allegations and said he had authorised the release of a transcript of the call on Wednesday (local time).

I ran to make the lives of New Jerseyans better.But I have long said that Congress is a co-equal branch of government and has Constitutional oversight duties as well as duties to legislate for Americans.

Biden says that would be a tragedy of Trump's "own making". The elder Biden is also running for the Democratic Party's nomination in next year's presidential election.

Trump said in tweets today: "I am now at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine..."

The person described their concern as "serious" and "urgent".
