IMPEACHMENT/NANCY PELOSI/NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday [9-24-19] that the House would initiate a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump, charging him with betraying his oath of office and the nation’s security by seeking to enlist a foreign power to tarnish a rival for his own political gain. Ms. Pelosi’s declaration, after months of reticence by Democrats who had feared the political consequences of impeaching a president many of them long ago concluded was unfit for office, was a stunning turn that set the stage for a history-making and exceedingly bitter confrontation between the Democrat-led House and a defiant president who has thumbed his nose at institutional norms…She said the president’s conduct revealed his ‘betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections.’”
