Pelosi proceeds with Articles of Impeachment


Pelosi proceeds with articles of impeachment

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that she has asked key chairmen to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, a historic step that signals the House is increasingly likely to vote to impeach Trump before the end of this year.

 

“Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders, and a heart full of love for America, today I am asking our chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment,” Pelosi said, standing in front of a row of American flags.

 

Pelosi didn’t provide additional details, but Democrats have said they are considering multiple articles of impeachment against Trump including abuse of power, obstruction of justice and obstruction of Congress. The House Judiciary Committee is expected to draw up articles of impeachment as soon as next week.

“His wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution. Our democracy is what is at stake,” Pelosi said in a 10-minute nationally televised address just outside the speaker’s balcony.

 

“The facts are uncontested,” she added. “The president abused his power for his own personal political benefit at the expense of our national security.”

 

Shortly after Pelosi's announcement, the Judiciary Committee announced a Monday hearing to present evidence obtained in the Intelligence Committee's Ukraine investigation.

 

Pelosi cast her decision as a heavy-hearted but necessary one to preserve American democracy in the face of a president who is seeking to corrupt the 2020 election. She repeatedly cited the vision of the Constitution’s framers who feared a president might try to assume the powers of a monarch and allow foreign influence to corrupt the American government.
