Trump’s accountability: US Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that she has ordered the House Judiciary Committee to draw up list of President’s accountability clauses over his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate the activities of a political rival.

“The facts are beyond doubt. The president has used his power for his own political benefit at the expense of our national security by withholding military assistance and holding an important meeting in the Oval Office in exchange for announcing an investigation into the activities of his political rival”, Pelosi said in a televised statement.

“Unfortunately, but with confidence and modesty, I ask today the chairman to proceed with the preparation of the Trump’s accountability clauses”, she said, referring to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Lewis Nadler.

“Democrat-led Trump’s accountability investigation was hastily and flawed”

Pelosi made the remarks a day after the Judicial Committee held a hearing in which constitutional law experts summoned by Democratic lawmakers said Trump was involved in acts constituting crimes requiring accountability under the constitution. A fourth expert, called by Republican lawmakers, said the Democrat-led accountability investigation was hastily and flawed.

Earlier Thursday, Trump urged Democrats to act quickly if they intended to hold him accountable so that the Republican-dominated Senate could handle the issue.

“If you are going to decide my accountability, do it now, quickly, so that we have a fair trial in the Senate, so that our country can return to work”, Trump wrote on Twitter.
