Wall Street drops in volatile trade on Trump impeachment call

Share

If Pelosi launches an impeachment before the transcripts come out, or on the basis of not getting the transcripts from the White House, she runs the risk of them turning out to be a nothingburger and exposing the entire enterprise as a political hatchet job. The news was sent to Trump supporters via email today, shortly before Nancy Pelosi called for a formal impeachment hearing.

As the story continues to shift will more Democrats call for articles of impeachment as the movement gains momentum?

After Pelosi's Tuesday announcement, the president and his campaign team quickly released a series of tweets attacking Democrats, including a video of presidential critics like the speaker and Rep. Ilhan Omar discussing impeachment.

This task force will be made up of only President Trump's most LOYAL supporters, the ones committed to fighting for him, re-electing him, and taking back the House.

The Washington Post reported that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would announce a formal impeachment inquiry of Trump, a Republican, later on Tuesday.

The letter has quickly been shared by multiple people on Twitter.

The letter is the latest effort by congressional Democratic leaders to push for an investigation into the whistleblower complaint amid a controversy surrounding Trump and his contact with Ukraine. In a summer phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, he is said to have asked for help investigating Democrat Joe Biden and his son Hunter. The Trump administration is withholding it thus far in order to protect executive authority over diplomatic communications between heads of government, but the intelligence community must have their own transcript in hand. Trump later released the aid.

You likely know all the details at this point, and even Jimmy Fallon was poking fun at Pelosi last night for urging caution despite such an egregious alleged quid pro quo by the president.

Pelosi said Trump called her earlier Thursday before addressing the United Nations General Assembly.

He said the released transcript would show the call was "totally appropriate" and that he had not pressured Zelenskiy to investigate Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and that there had been no quid pro quo for US aid in exchange for a probe. But Trump himself basically told reporters Monday that he did pressure Zelensky, though not in so many words.

"You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call", Trump said. "Joe Biden and his son are corrupt". He's tweeted that "the Democrats purposely had to ruin and demean it with more breaking news Witch Hunt garbage". It's not illegal to mention one's political opponents in a conversation if that's all that happened, so perhaps the transcript will exonerate Trump as he claims.
