A lot of news surrounding Trump and impeachment broke on Tuesday. Here’s a breakdown of all the news bits you might have missed.

  • Around 11 a.m. MT, The Washington Post reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi planned to announce a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Pelosi planned to make her announcement Tuesday at a closed-door meeting with Democrats. Axios offered a look into Pelosi’s thinking on impeachment, which is certainly worth a read.
  • Per Axios, the U.S. Senate unanimously called for Trump to release the full Ukraine whistleblower complaint, which allegedly involves Trump and Ukraine.

He reportedly called for Zelensky to work with Rudy Guiuliani to hurt Biden. On Monday, The Washington Post reported that Trump ordered with withholding military aid to Ukraine. A whistleblower previously released a report that someone, apparently Trump, made an inappropriate “promise” to a foreign leader, according to The Washington Post.
