Pelosi asks Dems whether to impeach Trump - report

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been consulting her top allies and colleagues about whether it is time to impeach President Donald Trump in the light of the latest controversy concerning Trump's efforts to make Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate former US Vice-President Joe Biden and members of his family, the Washington Post reported on Monday, citing multiple sources among House Democrats.

After the Trump administration blocked lawmakers' demand to deliver a complaint by a whistleblower about the president's conduct, the chairs of three House committees threatened to subpoena Secretary of State Mike Pompeo if the State Department fails to provide the requested documents.

Trump, meanwhile, brushed off the gravity of the situation, saying that he is not taking impeachment seriously, but that he would consider showing a transcript of the contested phone call with Zelensky to a "respected source."
