“Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the House of Representatives to begin drafting impeachment articles against President Trump, pushing ahead with a rapid timetable that could set the stage for a deeply partisan vote before Christmas to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors,” the New York Times reports.
Said Pelosi: “The facts are uncontested. The president abused his power for his own personal political benefit, at the expense of our national security.”
She added: “His wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution. Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and a heart full of love for America, today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment.”Save to Favorites
