Pelosi Sets a High Bar for Impeachment Inquiry: ‘Ironclad’ Proof

  Pelosi Sets a High Bar for Impeachment Inquiry: ‘Ironclad’ Proof House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offers her most expansive view of the impeachment probe to date.Pelosi said the partial transcript of Trump’s July 25 conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy stood in sharp contrast to the less clear-cut allegations in Robert Mueller’s special counsel report. That phone call — where Trump is heard urging Zelenskiy to investigate Joe Biden — was a “bombshell” that peeled away her initial reluctance to take the politically divisive step.

Bloomberg announced earlier this year that he would not seek the Democratic nomination. But in a statement Thursday, his political adviser Howard Wolfson says Bloomberg is worried that the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is "not well positioned" to defeat President Donald Trump.

A Bloomberg adviser says the former mayor has not made a final decision on whether to run. But he is expected to file to get on the ballot in Alabama's presidential primary.

Bloomberg’s Team Calls His Crude Remarks on Women ‘Wrong’ .
His team issued a statement addressing his history of insensitive comments. “Mike has come to see that some of what he has said is disrespectful and wrong,” said a spokesman, Stu Loeser, who served as Mr. Bloomberg’s City Hall press secretary and is now advising his prospective presidential bid. “He believes his words have not always aligned with his values and the way he has led his life.”Mr. Bloomberg is loath to admit fault, and the statement stops short of an apology.
