The House of Representatives will go ahead with impeachment of President Doland Trump, House speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday.
“Our democracy is what is at stake, the president leaves us no choice but to act,” she said.
Pelosi pointed to the abuse of power by Trump, adding that he undermined national security of the United States.
The top Democrat asked the Judiciary Chairman to proceed with the articles of impeachment.
Her speech came after three American experts on constitutional law told the House that Trump undoubtedly violated law when exerting pressure on Ukraine to start an investigation into the case involving his political opponents.
