WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday that the House would initiate a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump , charging him with betraying his oath of office and the nation’s security by seeking to enlist a foreign power to tarnish a rival for his own political gain.

Senior Democrats including Ms Pelosi had previously resisted growing calls from within the party to begin impeachment proceedings. They wanted those who supported and those who opposed a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump to both think they were getting what they wanted.

President Donald Trump resumed his impeachment-fueled tweetstorm on Friday morning, posting praise for the Republican "warriors" who have defended him in the ongoing House Judiciary Committee meetings and slamming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"The Republicans House members were fantastic yesterday. It always helps to have a much better case, in fact the Dems have no case at all, but the unity & sheer brilliance of these Republican warriors, all of them, was a beautiful sight to see. Dems had no answers and wanted out!" Trump tweeted.

President Trump on Thursday went on an early morning tweetstorm , bashing the House’s impeachment inquiry and the media, sending out dozens of tweets and retweets of supporters defending him.

The tweet was the first of seven posts (as of 8:30 a.m.) he had so far written since 6:00 a.m. Friday morning.

Just a day earlier, Trump tweeted or retweeted more than 115 times — most of them centered on impeachment. The president has been even more prolific than usual on Twitter in recent days: On Sunday, he tweeted and retweeted 105 times.

Trump faces fight or flight moment in Senate impeachment trial

  Trump faces fight or flight moment in Senate impeachment trial Analysis: With his legacy, his re-election and his movement on the line, it would be quite a retreat for the president to sidestep a full Senate trial.The White House and the Senate Republican Conference are united in their desire to dispose of it , but divided over how to do that in the way that inflicts the most damage on Democrats and the least harm on them — a show that gives Trump the chance to turn the tables on his accusers, or a quick dismissal that amounts to an exercise in self-preservation for him and GOP senators.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued Tuesday that President Donald Trump is trying to provoke Democrats into proceeding with impeachment , using some of her strongest language yet on the issue.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Chris Cuomo that she doesn't subscribe to the idea of President Trump being impeached .

The president went on to tweet Friday a boast about his poll numbers, called the impeachment case against him a "total hoax" and claimed that Pelosi had "admitted yesterday that she began this scam 2 1/2 years ago!"

That last claim was a mischaracterization of comments Pelosi made about impeachment earlier this week.

At an event Tuesday afternoon at Politico's "Women Rule" summit, Pelosi was asked to react to the criticism that Democrats are racing through their impeachment inquiry of the president. "It's been going on for 22 months, two-and-a-half years actually," Pelosi said initially. She then made clear she was referring to the Mueller investigation.

Trump, meanwhile, also tweeted Friday criticism of CNN and MSNBC and praise for Fox News Channel.

I thought Pelosi’s latest impeachment move was a joke, but it’s not – I still have to laugh .
I’ll confess: Wednesday night, when I was first told that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was toying with the idea of not delivering the two articles of impeachment voted by the House against President Trump, I assumed it was a joke. © Provided by FOX NewsFor these last weeks, the Democrat-dominated chamber has been in a mad rush to impeach the president. Democrats even tacked on article two — “obstruction of Congress” — because, they told us, time could not be wasted engaging in the usual negotiation and litigation over legislative demands for executive branch information.
