House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday President Donald Trump was moving closer to impeachment with his effort to thwart congressional subpoenas and obstruct lawmakers' efforts to oversee his administration.
"Every single day the president is making a case" and "he's becoming self-impeachable," Pelosi said of President Donald Trump's actions when asked about the possibility of him being impeached by the House. But she noted that impeachment also is "divisive" for the country.
