House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls the impeachment of President Trump a sad time for America. During a Capitol briefing, Pelosi said Trump brought it on himself by abusing his power and obstructing Congress in the investigation of the Ukraine scandal. Pelosi argued that the Trump administration is involved in a tangled web of deception. She cited a new report from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office that the White House illegally delayed planned military aid to Ukraine this past summer.
Pelosi argued that Senate Republicans who want to block witnesses and subpoenas are "afraid of the truth." He added, "They want to ignore anything new that comes up."
