House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is expected to announce the formalization of an impeachment investigation against President Trump when she speaks this evening on Capitol Hill at 5 PM ET, Fox News said.

Pelosi on Tuesday afternoon, met with the house Democratic caucus, so that the proposed statement.

Careful here, the electability of endangered Democrats, Pelosi had long resisted, the dramatic move-even if other top Democrats have insisted that a charge request has been running for months.

Pelosi is an indictment imprimatur came after a flood of those swing-district Democrats late on Monday night, wrote an op-ed view in The Washington Post, the backup of an impeachment investigation, or fact-finding, whether an impeachment vote is justified.


Their decision emboldened Democrats, who are stopped for a long time for the impeachment of the President, only after Special Counsel Robert Muller is no evidence for Russian collusion, the trump campaign took place.

But a new dynamic quickly claim that the President of the Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky expressed in July, when a call is made to investigate, Biden former Vice-President Joe and his son Hunter built for the move, according to a whistleblower ‘ s.


Joe Biden has confirmed that, when he was Vice President, he set himself successfully to the Ukraine under pressure to fire top Prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, while Shokin, the investigation of the natural gas company Burisma Holdings — where Hunter Biden was on the Board.

In remarks to reporters at the United Nations on Monday, Trump the linking of the aid money to the Ukraine, the investigation is denied. “No, I don’t” have said it Trump. But he also repeated the three-part’ actions in Ukraine as a “disgrace” and added: “It is very important to talk to about corruption. … Why should you give money to a country that you think is corrupt?”


The President vowed Tuesday to the publication of a transcript of HIS call with Ukraine is a leader, but to witness Democrats continue to push for the whistleblowers, and to see the full whistleblower, complaint. A source familiar with the matter told Fox News this week that the whistleblower had no first-Hand knowledge of the call.

Pelosi and House majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, D-Md., a joint statement released Tuesday announcing an early decision, denounced the White house failure to turn all of the related documents to the Congress.


“Allegations that the President of the United States is trying to win, to interfere with a foreign government in our democratic process by investigating one of his political opponents – and can the restraint of Congressionally remaining foreign aid days wrote earlier as intimidation – which is deeply alarming,” Hoyer and Pelosi.

Democratic leaders demanded that the whistleblower-protection, and for “the Deputy Director of National Intelligence, [to] provide Congress and the [whistleblower] complaint, according to the law, and all requests for documents and witness statements in respect of this claim.”

She continued: “On Wednesday, the house will be about a resolution to make it clear, Congress’s rejection of the administrative vote to block the efforts, the publication of the complaint and the need to protect the whistleblower. This is not a partisan thing, it’s about the integrity.”

Meanwhile, Yahoo News reported that the GOP-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee had written to the whistleblower’s attorney to a “closed doors” interview.

The exact impact of Pelosi is the displacement to the removal from office is unclear, given Democrats ” earlier rhetoric on the subject. Earlier this month, Hoyer, and against some of the language of his colleagues to the fact that the Congress does not deal with any type of “prosecution’s request” — press prior to the turn of hours later in a “clarification” statement.

Other top Democrats, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-NY, have repeatedly insisted, in court and in public that a law enforcement investigation in progress.

“It was an impeachment request,” Nadler said. “What we will do is clear. It was very clear. It is still very clear.”

But, when asked if he thought it was a prosecution’s request, Hoyer responded with a resounding “no”.


Hoyer added: “I think the distinction should be whether or not you are considering a dissolution of the indictment.”
