The Week in Review: Illinois Dems Join Pelosi’s Call for Impeachment Inquiry


All the Democrats in Illinois’ congressional delegation now support impeachment hearings in the wake of a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump, who asked Ukraine’s new president to “look into” his political rival Joe Biden, according to a rough transcript of a July phone call between the leaders.

Details of the complaint were released Thursday.
