US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that an official inquiry was launched to isolate President Donald Trump, who is suspected of violating the Constitution, by seeking the help of a foreign country to harm his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, in what Trump called a “stinking hunt” against him.
“The actions of the Trump presidency revealed the outrageous facts of the president’s betrayal of his oath, his betrayal of our national security and his betrayal of the integrity of our elections”, Pelosi said.
“Therefore, I announce today that the House of Representatives is opening an official investigation to remove the president”.
Earlier, the chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means of Taxation, Richard Neil, said after his meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives that the decision was taken to proceed with the removal of the president.
In a related context, the US Senate, passed a resolution demanding the referral of the complaint of the intelligence officer who revealed the subject of Trump’s pressure on Ukraine, to the intelligence committees of the House and Senate.
Earlier, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said in a joint statement that the resolution also provided for the protection of the information detector.
Commenting on information about Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to open an investigation with the son of potential Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Pelosi said Trump had no right to ask a foreign government to open an investigation into his political rival, even if it didn’t linked the investigation with the aid.
Trump is accused of delaying a $ 400 million aid package to Ukraine to put pressure on President Vladimir Zelinsky to open an investigation into Joe Biden’s son.
Trump admitted to postponing the aid, but he denied putting any pressure on Ukraine for his political interest.
