Pelosi says House to begin 'official impeachment inquiry' on Donald Trump

"The President must be held accountable. No one is above the law" — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 9-24-2019

Huge news from Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "Today, I'm announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry."

She cites "the president's betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections."

What exactly does this mean?

What happens right now?

Then what happens after that?

Does this lead to Trump's removal from office?

Nobody knows yet.

But Pelosi isn't standing in the way of it anymore.

The President freaked out on Twitter, of course.

Observations and reactions from reporters and others, below.
