Pelosi has set the House on course to potentially voting on a new impeachment of Trump as early as this coming week, a move that has overwhelming support from Democrats. She shed no new light Saturday on whether she’s made a final decision on that or other details.
Pelosi says, “The complicity, not only the complicity, the instigation of the president of United States, must and will be addressed.”MORE NEWS: Public Health Officials, NBA Bench Unvaccinated Warriors Star Andrew Wiggins For Chase Center Games
