House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump, over allegations he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July call to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for the release of $391 million in aid.

The New York Times reports that the call is believed to be the subject of a complaint from a whistleblower in the intelligence community, that the Trump administration has withheld from Congress.

In her official announcement, Pelosi said the six House committees already investigating Trump will make recommendations to the House Judiciary Committee, which handles impeachment.

Their reports could then form the articles of impeachment against the president.

Two-thirds majority in Senate needed to convict VOICEOVER (in English): House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump, over allegations he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July call to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for the release of $391 million in aid.

"The New York Times reports that the call is believed to be the subject of a complaint from a whistleblower in the intelligence community, that the Trump administration has withheld from Congress." "In her official announcement, Pelosi said the six House committees already investigating Trump will make recommendations to the House Judiciary Committee, which handles impeachment." "Their reports could then form the articles of impeachment against the president." "According to the New York Times, the launch of a formal inquiry doesn't necessarily mean the House will vote to charge Trump with 'high crimes and misdemeanors.'

"But it's the likely outcome, given that Democrats hold a majority of seats, and only a simple majority vote is needed to indict." According to a New York Times survey, the number of House Democrats supporting impeachment is currently at 203 — more than two thirds of the 235-member caucus.

"If the House moves forward with a charge, the proceedings move to the Senate for a trial presided over by the Supreme Court Chief Justice, with the Senate acting as jury." "A conviction would require a two-thirds majority, but is unlikely to go through as the Senate is controlled by the Republicans."
