"The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy," Trump tweeted.

President Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives, and on Wednesday, the Senate She is a member of two committees involved in impeachment , the intelligence and judiciary committees, which means she is very familiar with the evidence Democrats gathered against Trump .

"His wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution," Pelosi said. "The president leaves us know choice but to act."

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Wednesday to consider possible articles of impeachment during which a panel of constitutional legal scholars debated whether Trump's actions constituted grounds for impeaching him.

Three witnesses selected by Democrats testified that they believed Trump committed impeachable offenses and delivered scathing testimony about the president's conduct toward Ukraine. The witness chosen by Republicans, meanwhile, said it would be premature for Democrats to impeach Trump at this stage, describing the evidence as thin and the proceeding as hurried.

Pelosi Says House Will Draft Impeachment Charges Against Trump

  Pelosi Says House Will Draft Impeachment Charges Against Trump Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives would begin drafting impeachment articles against President Trump.WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced today that the House of Representatives would begin drafting impeachment articles against President Trump, pushing ahead with a rapid timetable that could set the stage for a vote before Christmas to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors.

House Democrats have laid out the constitutional grounds for their case to impeach President Donald Trump , as the process gathers pace. A report by the judiciary committee setting out the legal and historical basis for impeachment comes ahead of Monday's public hearing to consider evidence

A full House vote on whether to impeach the president was expected to be taken as early as Wednesday. But Democrats saw no way to accommodate Republican demands , many of which would have rendered the impeachment inquiry unrecognizable as a tribunal on Trump ’s conduct.

Democrats have argued they have clear evidence that Trump abused his power in his dealings with Ukraine.

At the center of the impeachment inquiry is a July 25 call during which Trump asked Ukraine's president to investigate a debunked theory about Kyiv's involvement in the 2016 Democratic National Committee hack as well as former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter's dealings in Ukraine. Trump has maintained he did nothing wrong and described his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as "perfect."

The president has refused to cooperate in the impeachment inquiry in the more than two months since Pelosi announced it, ordering witnesses to testify and refusing congressional subpoenas for documents. The White House has argued House Democrats are engaged in a partisan and "illegitimate" effort to damage Trump politically and has attacked the process as unfair.

Democrats have signaled they may draft an article of impeachment accusing Trump of obstructing Congress, citing his refusal to cooperate. Democrats are also considering charges of obstruction of justice, abuse of power and bribery.

Trump and his allies lobbed fresh assaults on the proceedings they dismiss as a hoax and a sham.
