Update: Nancy Pelosi Has Announced a Formal Impeachment Inquiry

Update: Nancy Pelosi has announced that the House of Representative is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry.

Trump has responded.




——

It’s all happening.

A few minutes ago, Donald Trump authorized the release of the transcript of his conversation with the Ukrainian President. That, of course, is not what the Democrats wanted. They wanted the release of the whistleblower report, which includes — but is not limited to — the conversation between Trump and the Ukranian President.

Of course, if Trump released the transcript without the whistleblower complaint, it wouldn’t lay out the entire case, and Trump and his defenders would take to the airwaves and decry the Democrats for making something out of nothing.

It appears that Nancy Pelosi is going to make something out of that something before Trump can nullify it on Fox News. The Washington Post is reporting that Nancy Pelosi is expected to announce a formal impeachment inquiry. This comes amid a growing number of House Democrats publicly supporting impeachment (that number is currently over 160) and, interestingly, on the same day Trump called her and tried to sweet-talk her into gun legislation. I guess he thought he could use that as cover.

Minutes after The Washington Post reported that Pelosi would announce a formal impeachment inquiry, this also happened:

All of this also comes on the same day that Donald Trump attempted to provide a cover story for withholding $400 million of aid from Ukraine. Over the weekend, it was so that it would look into corruption. This morning, it was because he was waiting for more help from Europe. He knew was screwed, and now he’s trying to cover his ass.

Things are moving quickly now, as they did with Nixon when he was impeached. We’ve gone from “brewing scandal” last Thursday to “formal impeachment inquiry” today.

And here is Mitch McConnell forgetting or refusing to cover Trump’s ass. Ooops.

Update Oh shit.
