House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for Articles of Impeachment against President Trump.
“Today, I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment,” Pelosi said.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that she has instructed House Democrats to draw up articles of impeachment of President Donald Trump, saying he had abused his power,” ABC reported.
Pelosi officially announced that she will move forward with Democrat efforts to remove President Trump from office.
Pelosi said, “The President leaves us no choice but to act. Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and a heart full of love for America, today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment.”

President Trump responded on Thursday to House Democrats.
Trump believes Americans need to hear testimony from three top Democrats, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy,” Trump tweeted.
“Therefore I say, if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate and so that our Country can get back to business,” Trump added.
“We will have Schiff, the Bidens, Pelosi and many more testify, and will reveal, for the first time, how corrupt our system really is.”
“I was elected to ‘Clean the Swamp,’ and that’s what I am doing!” Trump said.
