House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announces formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
"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.”
"The president must be held accountable," she continued. "No one is above the law."
