She formally requested that the House Judiciary Committee move forward with articles of impeachment base on allegations that Mr. Trump abusing the power of his office and inviting foreign interference in the 2020 election.

“The president leaves us no choice but to act because he’s trying once again to corrupt the election for his own benefit,” she said.

Democrats have just entered phase two of the impeachment proceedings with Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on high crimes and misdemeanors.

Mrs. Pelosi did not offer a timeline for when the House will vote on articles, but many of her members are hoping to move through this step quickly and reach a decision before the end of the year.
