Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will deliver a statement on the “status of impeachment inquiry” into President Trump at 9 a.m., her office announced early Thursday morning.
Pelosi will speak from the Speaker’s Balcony Hallway, where in September she announced the launch of the impeachment inquiry into Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. She announced the inquiry after a whistleblower complained that Trump had asked the Ukrainian president to investigate potential 2020 opponent Joe Biden and his son. The president’s ask came days after congressionally approved military aid was withheld from the country
Her remarks will follow the House Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing.
Three constitutional scholars called by Democrats told lawmakers on Wednesday that Trump committed impeachable offenses. A fourth Republican witness disagreed.
