When reports indicated Trump had tried to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced she was backing a formal impeachment inquiry into the president. A White House memorandum of the Trump-Zelensky call later indicated that was true, but Trump still attacked Pelosi in a press conference Wednesday with the most untrue thing he could think of.
