Pelosi Announces Trump Impeachment Is Going Forward

House Speaker Nacy Pelosi has announced via live stream this morning that impeachment proceedings will indeed be going forward.

"Today I am asking our chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment," Pelosi stated.

This announcement follows weeks of public hearings held by the house judiciary committee.

After testimony from a handful of witnesses, the house will be going forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

"In America, no one is above the law"

There are a number of subsequent steps that will need to be taken before impeachment is actually a physical reality, but the American people are one step closer to a legitimate trial.
