Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is at an event in DC hosted by Politico, taking the first batch of questions from Politico reporter Anna Palmer on impeachment since the articles of impeachment
“It’s a sad day actually, a solemn day. It’s something that no one comes to Congress to do, to impeach a president.”
Pelosi shrugged off a question of why the findings of the Mueller report weren’t included in the articles of impeachment.
Pelosi is emphasizing that the impeachment isn’t about the election, which the Republicans are arguing that it is, but instead it’s about the Constitution and Congress’ role in checks and balances.
