A formal House impeachment inquiry into President Trump is being launched in the wake of allegations that the president asked the Ukrainian government to interfere with political rival Joe Biden. State GOP Chair Jennifer Carnahan says of Democrats…

“Their motivation and agenda from day one of President Trump winning that office has been impeachment and to try to find ways to go after him and continue to smear his leadership and take the focus off of the positive things he’s doing for the country.”

But Democrat Congresswoman Angie Craig disagrees and says in this case…

“I believe that no one is above the law and that it is our responsibility as leaders to hold our elected leaders accountable and to put this country above our parties.”

The president says he’ll release a full transcript today of his conversation with the president of Ukraine. He calls the latest allegations “witch hunt garbage.”
