House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
“The actions of the Trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the President’s betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections. Therefore, today, I am announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the formalization of an impeachment inquiry into President Trump Tuesday evening, saying “the president must be held accountable” for his “betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections.”
Pelosi specifically charged that the White House had violated the law by not turning over a whistleblower complaint concerning Trump’s July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump allegedly pushed Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. The president vowed Tuesday to release a transcript of his call with Zelensky.
“This week, the president has admitted to asking the president of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically,” Pelosi said. “Therefore, today, I’m announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. I’m directing our six committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella. More

This right after President Trump said he will release the transcript showing that he did nothing wrong. Liberals are getting played by Trump.
Speaker Pelosi’s decree changes absolutely nothing. As I have been telling Chairman Nadler for weeks, merely claiming the House is conducting an impeachment inquiry doesn’t make it so. Until the full House votes to authorize an inquiry, nobody is conducting a formal inquiry.

Pelosi begins #Impeachment “inquiry.”#PresidentTrump will either be found innocent or guilty.

The Democrats know how to self destruct. I’m glad they are moving forward on this, it will ruin the Democrats. Plus it will guarantee that Donald Trump is elected to a second term. Thank you, foolish Democrats!
This action today by @SpeakerPelosi demonstrates that the Democrats know they cannot win at the ballot box and that Pelosi is scrambling to maintain her very fragile position within her party! @HouseDemocrats just re-elected @realDonaldTrump @POTUS @GOP @TheFive @MSNBC @CNN 😂🇺🇸
