Nancy Pelosi addressing the nation on impeachment
“In the course of today’s events, is has become necessary to address the president’s failure to execute the law”, the House speaker says at her press conference underway in DC right now.
Pelosi is giving background on the protections enshired in the US Constitution to protect the American people against a president who breaks the law or assumes to behave like a king.
“The facts are uncontested: the president abused his power for his own political benefit at the expense of our national security,” she says.
“The president’s actions are a profound violation of the public trust… and have seriously violated the constitution… his wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our constitution and the separation of powers… our democracy is at stake, the president leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt the election for his own benefit.”
