On today’s episode of “The story”, Martha, Nancy Pelosi describes how the announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry, plus, President Trump condemns Iran’s ‘bloodlust.’

Ranking House Judiciary Committee Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement of the approval of a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump, calling it a “wrong and weak decree.”

“Today is not what the indictment looks like, and this afternoon’s press conference missed nothing legally,” Collins said in a statement according to the speaker, the announcement on Tuesday. “It has to authorize any vote, a formal charge request.”

He added: “If the Democrats believed the facts were in your favor, you would process the due that the house under Clinton and the Nixon impeachments.”


On Tuesday Pelosi, D-Calif., said: “The President must be held accountable” for his “betrayal of his oath of office, a betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections.”

You approved effectively the process of acting to a certain degree, already in progress, after which fresh pressure within the Democratic caucus to. The move could be the support of the Democrats controversial argument before the court, the prosecution process were, in fact, is in progress, which could entitle the Congress to provide additional documents

Pelosi specifically charged that the administration had violated the law by not turn over a whistleblower complaint about trump in July-call with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky. Citing a witness, that the Director of national intelligence, was the blocking of the release of this complaint, she said: “This is a violation of the law. The law is clear.”


Trump allegedly pushed to investigate Zelensky, former Vice-President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Joe Biden has confirmed to camera that, as he is Vice-President was he successful in Ukraine is 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. Shokin had separated, was accused of corruption.

But there were several indicators throughout the day, Pelosi, the the move could backfire, as the Republicans predicted over the weekend.

“No matter how many Democrats you subscribe to the fantasy that the house began an impeachment inquiry—whether in March, July, August, or September, neither the Chairman [Jerrold] Nadler, nor speaker Pelosi have unilateral authority, for the launch of,” Collins said Tuesday evening.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and fellow Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee have been investigating Trump as part of what they called the impeachment process. Especially, Nadler Trump moved former 2016 campaign manager, Cory Lewandowski, before his Committee last week for a fighter for five hours in the witness’s relationship with the possible impeachable conduct by the President.


On Tuesday afternoon, Pelosi announced that several house committees are now moving forward with a prosecution request.

“This is the first partisan ‘charge’ in the history of the Republic, and the true victims of the Americans,” Collins said. “You have chosen Donald Trump to be our President and their representatives to solve the border crisis and the support of a growing economy. Instead of accepting these facts, the Democrats, chaos, sowing legislative solutions do not produce.”

He went on to say, “The chaos began in the judiciary Committee, and it is now seeping into the rest of the house.”

Trump vowed earlier Tuesday to release a “full” copy of his call with Zelensky from Wednesday.


In addition, a senior administration official told Fox News late Tuesday that the White house is working as quickly as you can appeal for release to the Congress, the whistleblower, as long as it is legally possible. The official told Fox News the White house had nothing to hide, is that it is not misconduct.
