Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton considers it a constitutional duty of the House of Representatives to consider impeachment of President Donald Trump. She said this during an interview with PEOPLE.

"I didn't make that decision easily or quickly," she said, "but in my opinion, it's an emergency. ... This latest behavior around Ukraine is an attempt to win the support of the President of Ukraine in a plot to overthrow former Vice President Biden or losing the military help he needs to protect himself from Trump's friend Vladimir Putin - if it's not a crime, I don't know what it is," Clinton said.

Calling Trump "a reckless, corrupt, self-respecting human tornado," Clinton said the constitutional obligation of the House of Representatives is to begin impeachment proceedings in the interests of national security.

It was reported that on September 24, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an official statement about initiating the impeachment of US President Donald Trump because of pressure on President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

On September 25, President Donald Trump commissioned the release of a transcript of his telephone conversation with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. Permission from the Ukrainian side to publish the conversation in the United States was received.

According to media reports, the White House is working on an agreement that would allow a government official who complained about Trump to disclose details of the complaint to Congressional investigators.
