WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday the House was proceeding with articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

“Today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment,” Pelosi said on Capitol Hill. “The President leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt once again the election for his own benefit.”

Pelosi’s statement came one day after the first impeachment hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, which heard from legal experts who analyzed whether Trump’s conduct was impeachable.

The committee’s next step is expected to be a look into the evidence presented by the House Intelligence Committee, which released on Tuesday a 300-page report detailing the findings of the House’s two-month investigation into Trump and Ukraine.
