Pelosi: Ukraine Scandal a ‘Grave New Chapter of Lawlessness’
In a letter to Congress Sunday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Trump’s interest in Joe Biden’s Ukraine scandals could “take us into a whole new stage of investigation” into the President, according to Breitbart News.
An anonymous source last week claimed Trump asked the Ukrainian President to look into former VP Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his business dealings in Ukraine. But the supposed “whistleblower” reportedly had no direct knowledge of the conversation.
“This violation is about our national security,” Pelosi wrote. “The Inspector General determined that the matter is ‘urgent’ and therefore we face an emergency that must be addressed immediately. If the Administration persists in blocking this whistleblower from disclosing to Congress a serious possible breach of constitutional duties by the president, they will be entering a grave new chapter of lawlessness which will take us into a whole new stage of investigation.”
Radical Democrats have pressured a reluctant Pelosi to pursue Trump’s impeachment, but she has resisted.
