Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that House Democrats will launch an impeachment inquiry of Pres. Trump. The case involves a whistleblower, accusations of foreign entanglement in our politics and a Democratic presidential candidate. At issue is a phone conversation Pres. Trump had with Ukrainian Pres. Volodymyr Zelenskiy where he inquired about Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son’s dealings in the country.

However, the White House issued transcripts of the phone conversation and argue that the president did nothing illegal. Stay tuned.
