After months of intraparty debate, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that the House is moving forward with a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Pelosi said that Trump breached his constitutional duties in pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son. Trump called the announcement "presidential harassment" and said the unredacted transcript of his call with Ukraine's president will be released on Wednesday. We'll discuss the latest developments.
