Pelosi on impeachment: This is not about elections, it’s about the Constitution
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
were announced this morning.

“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.
“I wish everyone just focused on what we are bringing forward because this is very serious violations of our Constitution, undermining the national security of the United States, jeopardizing the integrity of our elections,” Pelosi said. “Instead of talking about what isn’t,
this is what is, and that’s how we’re moving forward.”

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.
“We are saying goodbye to a republic... and saying hello to a king”.
