Pelosi left draft of Trump impeachment speech on the plane | TheHill

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) left a draft of her speech announcing a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump on a plane during a flight back to Washington, D.C., earlier this week.

Pelosi told Politico that she began writing notes for a speech endorsing an impeachment inquiry after consulting with a group of freshman Democratic lawmakers who published a Washington Post op-ed voicing support for impeachment if allegations regarding the president’s interactions with his Ukrainian counterpart were true.

“I put down some notes on the plane at 10 p.m. at night but then I left it on the plane,” Pelosi told the news outlet.

Reuters, citing a source familiar with Pelosi’s notes, reported that the Speaker had drafted a speech while flying from New York to Washington.

“At least she had organized it in her head,” the source said.
