  • US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi making a televised statement in Washington yesterday where she announced that she has instructed the House Judiciary Committee to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump

Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told reporters: "We're ready for a trial".

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that House Democrats will move forward with drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying lawmakers have "no choice but to act".

"Our democracy is what is at stake. If we do not act to hold him in check, now, President Trump will nearly certainly try again to solicit interference in the election for his personal political gain". White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted that the "Democrats should be ashamed". The former vice president is a top contender for the Democratic nomination to face Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

"I don't hate anyone", Pelosi said, observing while back at the podium with a live microphone, that she was raised with "a heart full of love". She had opened the investigation in September. They joined in his name-calling the Judiciary proceedings a "disgrace" and unfair, the dredging up of unfounded allegations as part of an effort to undo the 2016 election and remove him from office. "I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment", she added in her televised statement, referring to Mr Jerrold Nadler. The good thing is that the Republicans have NEVER been more united. "We will win!" Trump said. She acted after receiving overwhelming support in a party meeting on Wednesday night, a source familiar with the meeting said. "I still pray for the president", she added.

The House Speaker's directive marked a dramatic moment in the Trump Presidency towards the end of its third year, coming up on a re-election in November 2020. Hunter joined the board of a Ukrainian energy company when Joe Biden was United States vice-president.

Media captionHow four legal experts see the impeachment inquiry What is Trump accused of? She cited Trump's pressuring Ukraine to seek dirt on his Democratic political rivals while he withheld military aid and a White House meeting sought by that country's new president.

Republicans accuse Democrats of trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election. They have described Trump's actions as aimed at weeding out corruption in Ukraine, not getting political dirt on Biden. Now, she is leading an impeachment inquiry over Trump's political pressure campaign on Ukraine - only the fourth presidential impeachment proceedings in history.

The process is expected to move rapidly from here on, with articles likely presented for a full House vote later this month after weeks of hearings.

Caitlyn Jenner Claims Robert Kardashian Knew If OJ Simpson Was Guilty
Jenner's campmate Kate Garraway asked if Jenner had liked Simpson. "I gladly said no", she revealed. Kris and Robert were good friends with OJ and his wife Nicole , who was murdered.

The Democratic desperation was obvious in the witnesses they called to the hearing: three rambling liberal law professors with documented anti-Trump biases who lectured the American people on their hatred for this president, rather than providing a shred of evidence to bolster the Democrats' case. Nadler has given committee Republicans the same deadline to request witnesses.

She spoke a day after the House Judiciary Committee began considering potential charges against the Republican president.

Including material from Mueller's report in an article of impeachment would demonstrate a pattern of behavior involving foreign interference in US elections, House Judiciary Democrat Pramila Jayapal said.

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway told reporters at the White House that they are "very ready" for the trial.

Impeachment is the process by which the lower house of Congress brings charges against a USA president. Only through a conviction there can Trump be removed from office.

President Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached.

A defiant Trump dared Democrats to press ahead with impeachment "now, fast" - so he can have a "fair trial in the Senate" where his party holds power and he is confident of being exonerated. The House Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, tweeted "Pelosi and the Democrats are clearly are blinded by their hate for the President".

What did the White House say?

"It's a hoax, it's a big fat hoax".
