AUSTIN, TX (Reuters) – U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Saturday that public opinion is now on the side of an impeachment inquiry against U.S. President Donald Trump following the release of new information about his conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
Pelosi this week announced her support for an investigation after the surfacing of a whistleblower complaint that said Trump solicited a political favor from Ukraine’s president aimed at helping him be re-elected next year.
