A growing number of Democrats have shown support for beginning an impeachment inquiry, spurred by recent reports that a U.S. intelligence official filed a whistleblower complaint against the president last month.
Pelosi is expected to speak publicly about the path forward at 5 p.m. EDT.
At issue is a summer phone call Trump had with Ukraine's president, which came to Congress' attention through a whistleblower complaint. Trump has insisted he did nothing wrong in the call, but has suggested he raised Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter as part of discussions over corruption in Ukraine — despite no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either man.
Trump announced Tuesday on Twitter that he authorized the release of a transcript of the conversation.
"You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call," the president wrote.
I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine....
....You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!
