Pelosi made the stylized announcement publicly from inside her Capitol office after informing her caucus privately of her decision in a basement meeting room below.

‘This week the president has admitted to asking the president of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically. The actions of the Trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact [sic] of the president’s betrayal of his Oath of Office, betrayal of our national security, and betrayal of the integrity of our national elections,’ she said in a 5 pm announcement.

‘Therefore, today I’m announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. I’m directing our six committees to proceed with their investigation under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry. The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law.’

She’d been under intense pressure from Democrats inside and outside Congress to move forward with impeachment, with the cup running over on Tuesday when a new call came from former Vice President Joe Biden.
