House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced this morning she is asking the House Judiciary Committee to proceed with drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying “the president leaves us no choice but to act.”

Pelosi began her statement citing deliberations between the Founding Fathers with regards to impeachment, and said there was never the intention in the U.S. for one person to be “a king.”

Pelosi’s announcement came one day after the House Judiciary Committee held its first hearing in the inquiry in which three of the four witnesses argued that Trump committed impeachable offenses, including in his campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.
