Pelosi orders formal impeachment inquiry against Trump

WASHINGTON (dpa)- Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the Democrats in the House, orders a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump in Congress.
"I am announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry," Pelosi says in a televised announcement.

"The president must be held accountable, no one is above the law," she added.
Pelosi says the acting director of national intelligence must hand over a whistleblower complaint by Thursday, adding that withholding the complaint is a "violation of law."
"Blocking of the inquiry into a whistleblower complaint is a violation of the constitution," she said. "The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the constitution."
She accuses the president of threatening national security.
