House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took questions tonight from voters at a CNN town hall in Washington, DC.
A lot of the questions were about the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump, while others focused on health care and climate change.
In case you missed it, here are some of the key lines from the town hall:
- On the articles of impeachment: "We’re operating collectively. It’s not going to be — somebody puts something on the table. We have our own, should we say, communication with each other.”
- On today's announcement about the impeachment inquiry: "I have to admit that today was quite historic. It was taking us across a threshold on this that we just had no choice. I do hope that it would be remembered in a way that honors the vision of our founders, what they had in mind for establishing a democracy."
- On White House officials refusing to testify: "They should be testifying because they have been asked to testify by Congress. It isn't a deal. It's about a system of checks and balances."
- On the impeachment inquiry: "The facts are clear. They were presented by the people who had access to the situation. The facts are clear. The Constitution is clear. The President violated the Constitution."
- On health care: "The most important issue for the American people is health care. It still is. And so that's why we're so happy, news of the day for us today was we announced our H.R. 3 legislation to reduce the cost of prescription drugs. We'll have it on the floor next week."
