Pelosi: Trump is ongoing threat to national security

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump presents an "ongoing threat to national security."

As she "solemnly and sadly" opened the impeachment debate in the House, Pelosi claimed it was "tragic" that Trump's actions gave Democrats "no choice" but to initiate impeachment proceedings. The House debate will last six hours after which representatives will vote on the two articles of impeachment, which accuse the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Earlier, Trump sent a letter to the House speaker to protest the "partisan impeachment crusade," but also insisted he is not worried about the possibility of being impeached.
