(Worthy News) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she supports a formal impeachment inquiry, though there's no vote scheduled at this time, the latest action in a spiraling controversy over a phone call President Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Following a meeting with the House Democratic Caucus, Pelosi said six Democratic-chaired panels, led by the Judiciary Committee, will continue to investigate the president under the "umbrella of an impeachment inquiry," even if there is no full House vote just yet.
"Today, I'm announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry," Pelosi told reporters on Tuesday. "The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law." [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
