House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to announce a formal impeachment inquiry later Tuesday, multiple sources on Capitol Hill tell CNN.
Pelosi had earlier said she would make an announcement at 5 p.m. ET.
Amid dozens of Democratic lawmakers opening the door to impeachment proceedings, Pelosi is consulting Tuesday afternoon with the six House Democratic leaders to discuss their presentation to the caucus later in the day, Democratic sources familiar with the issue say.
Pelosi is also expected to put a resolution on the House floor Wednesday to address reports that Trump pushed Ukraine’s President to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, amid growing calls to start the impeachment process, according to sources.
