‘No one is above the law’: Nancy Pelosi announces official impeachment inquiry ‘No one is above the law’: Nancy Pelosi announces official impeachment inquiryOnce again, storm clouds are gathering over the Trump presidency. This time with a hole impeachment inquiry house Speaker, Nancy Pelosi had in the past, expressed her reluctance to pursue a of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the Integrity of our elections. The Trump campaign says this will only embolden and energized a Democrat woodchuck. Here we go again the issue, not Russia, this time, but Ukraine, and whether Trump has helped to dig up dirt. The allegation here is very serious indeed that he was using the powers of the presidency to pressure a foreign government to essentially do harm to his political rival, Joe Biden. The crucial moment of phone call zielinski the newly-elected president of Ukraine. He swept into Power this summer on a promise to fight corruption, and President Trump had an idea. Just to start conversation I had was largely congratulatory was largely corruption. All of the corruption taken was largely the fact that we don’t want our people, like Vice President Biden, is done creating to the big corruption already in the Ukraine president, but insists she didn’t pressure anybody. There was no pressure, but a whistleblower from the intelligence Community says. Otherwise. How do you tell the president disputes at ABC News on the days before the call? The u.s. abruptly cut off four hundred million dollars in military aid to Ukraine on orders from the president, and it was never any quid pro quo. President Trump has offered various reasons for withholding that money. He said it was because he wanted Ukraine to deal with corruption. Why would you give money to a country that you think is? It is corrupt? He was trying to save the us taxpayers some money. I want other countries to put up money. I think it’s unfair that we would have the money. It’S unlikely. There is going to be absolutely black and white. Show me everything you get it so it’ll be interpretation of whatever evidence they find, but the justice department of the Director of National Intelligence have so far refused to hand over the whistleblowers report, Who was appointed by President Trump determined that the complaint is both of urgent Concern and credible over the top. That’S what a two-thirds of all house Democrats, who say now is the time to impeach. The thinking was so many of these numbers is, if this President is allowed to negotiate with foreign leaders to investigate political opponents. There will be nothing that tethers him to the forms of Civil Society, helping you clean After the revolution on behalf of the Obama Administration at the same time, just months after blood in stool livers, a very robust speech about fighting corruption. His son Hunter Biden takes a position on a board of Barista. That’S an oil gas company in Ukraine. Under investigation has recently travel to Ukraine to investigate the Biden story stories in Ukraine say. Would Hunter Biden did was wrong, but we also found out was that what did you beyond? He was actively talking to former Ukrainian officials, including the prosecutor at the center of all this. You just said you didn’t so really. We have two alleged wrongs here. One is the idea of cashing in on the presidency, and the other is the question of and listing of foreign government to dig up dirt on rival. For the president, what he’s doing he’s all the attention you can back to Joe Biden and Hunter Biden? The proper Democrats is, there is smoke there. Today, Biden pushed back Jack me and anyone else. We thought it would be a threat to his winning again, even though a reputable publication is looked at the charge that has been made against me at a found. The bass turn on true and without Merit, that’s not about to stop him what’s next! Well, President Trump now says tomorrow the White House will release the complete unredacted transcript of that July. Phone call, with Ukrainian he’s also scheduled to meet zielinski face-to-face at the UN. On Thursday, the Director of National Intelligence is due to appear in an open hearing on Capitol Hill and Democrat to testify, as well fixation on impeachment. Meanwhile, both sides are looking down the road for next year’s presidential election, whatever the best laid plans of of candidates and campaigns. All of that is going to fade Inn in the midst of it all compass in Washington story. Even if the Democrats in Congress gather enough votes to impeach President Trump, it’s unlikely they’d have the votes in the Senate to remove him from office. We have never impeached and removed the president from a and tell me the speaker of the house would resisted calls for impeachment to begin to go forward like this. This is a historic date front.
