House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) spoke to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington on Tuesday. Pelosi announced that the House would begin a formal impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump on Tuesday, yielding to mounting pressure from fellow Democrats and plunging a deeply divided nation into an election-year clash between Congress and the commander in chief.

The probe focuses partly on whether Trump abused his presidential powers and sought help from a foreign government to undermine Democratic foe Joe Biden and help his own reelection. Pelosi said such actions would mark a "betrayal of his oath of office" and declared, "No one is above the law."
