House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that there “is no cause for any joy” in launching a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
“This is a very sad time for our country,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said in an exclusive interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“We have to put country before party very clearly in the public view,” she added in her first interview since the impeachment inquiry was announced. “The impeachment of a president is as serious as our congressional responsibilities can be.”
Pelosi said the actions of the Trump administration were “jeopardizing national security” and “jeopardizing the integrity of our elections.”
