US House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a solo appearance at the Capitol said that when it came to Ukraine, Democrats were left with 'no choice but to act'. On December 5, Pelosi announced that the Democrats will begin the process of drafting articles of impeachment against US President Donald Trump. However, this announcement was immediately followed by Trump's anger who said that he now embraces and is eager to frame on his terms when the inquiry finally moves to an expected Senate trial next month. Pelosi, on the contrary, assured that the facts were uncontested and that POTUS abused his power.

Trump and other Republicans continue to call the accusations a "political witch hunt". Shortly before Pelosi's statement, Trump took to Twitter saying, "If you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our country can get back to business." Trump claimed that Democrats have no impeachment case and they are "demeaning the country."
