Tipping point… Speaker Pelosi announces formal impeachment inquiry
Pelosi quotes Paine: “The times have found us.”
The House will move forward with an impeachment inquiry against President Trump
“He is asking a foreign government to help him in his campaign, that is a betrayal of his oath of office.”
President Donald Trump on Tuesday called it “ridiculous” that additional House Democrats considering impeachment proceedings against him, saying they are doing so only because they cannot defeat him at the ballot box.
“I think it’s ridiculous,” Trump told reporters as he arrived to address the U.N. General Assembly in New York City.
The president accused House Democrats of moving closer to impeachment because “they can’t stop me” politically, claiming he is leading in polls even though RealClearPolitics’ average of polls show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden and other leading Democratic candidates, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California.

Apparently Trump had a phone call earlier today with Pelosi and tried to tamp down the whistle-blower issue whereupon Pelosi told him to “comply with the law”. It’s been reported by NBC that 187 Democrats now support impeachment.
