Pelosi directs House Democrats to proceed with articles of impeachment against Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday told the House committees investigating President Donald Trump to proceed with articles of impeachment. “The president’s actions have seriously violated the Constitution,” the California Democrat told reporters on Capitol Hill. He “leaves us no choice but to act,” she said. Pelosi spoke for about six minutes and took no questions. House Democrats are in the midst of an inquiry into whether Trump abused his power by withholding military aid to Ukraine in exchange for that country announcing investigations for his own political benefit and at the expense of U.S. national security interests. Pelosi’s comments confirm what was widely expected: that the Democrat-controlled House will vote on whether to impeach the president. Source
