Pelosi (D-California) announced the establishment of a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on Tuesday after reports that Mr. Trump pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, a Democratic candidate for the presidency.
 
President Trump acknowledged Sunday that he discussed Biden in a phone call with the newly elected president of Ukraine in July. One week before that call, Mr. Trump had instructed aides to hold off on releasing nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, a senior administration official confirmed to CBS News.
