Pelosi Boasts Impeachment Inquiry is Backed by 'Increased Outside Validation'
House speaker says the effort to impeach Trump is gaining support.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has touted 'increased' support of their effort to impeach President Donald Trump.
Pelosi wrote to Democrats ahead of lawmakers returning to the Capitol next week:
“This week, we have seen increased outside validation of our efforts to hold the President accountable."
The Speaker pointed rank-and-file Democrats to an op-ed published Thursday from 17 former prosecutors where involved in the Watergate investigation, which ultimately led to President Richard Nixon's resignation.
"The president’s refusal to cooperate in confirming (or disputing) the facts already on the public record should not delay or frustrate the House’s performance of its constitutional duty," the former prosecutors wrote.
Pelosi then noted the statement issued Thursday from GOP lawyers from previous Republican administrations that called for an impeachment inquiry “into the president’s abuse of the office of the presidency for personal objectives and his violation of the oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”
The signers included George Conway, husband of top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, and a strong and vocal opponent of President Trump.

Pelosi will hold a conference call with Democrats at 4 p.m.
“The president’s actions threaten our national security, violate our Constitution and undermine the integrity of our elections,” she wrote to Democrats.
“No one is above the law. The president will be held accountable.”
Speaking with “Tucker Carlson Tonight," Wright, who is a lifelong Democrat, was asked by host Tucker Carlson if Pelosi's decision was “wise idea.
”No, it’s not, Tucker,” said Wright.
“The whole thing is a disaster. Pelosi launched the Titanic tonight into a gigantic iceberg on November 2020. We had up until now, yesterday, really the last couple weeks it was all Russia," he added.
