From Pelosi's November 14 press conference:
But yesterday, you heard an appointee of the President speak in very unambiguous terms. A courageous public servant. The devastating testimony corroborated evidence of bribery uncovered in the inquiry and that the President abused power and violated his oath by threatening to withhold military aid and a White House meeting in exchange for an investigation into his political rival. Clear attempt of the President to give himself the advantage in the 2020 election. Doing so, as I said, to the President, ‘You jeopardize our national security, undermine our national security, jeopardizing integrity of our electoral system, violate your oath of office."
...And a bit of trolling:
Q: You talked about bribery a second ago, and that's a very serious charge. What's the case of bribery?
Speaker Pelosi. Well you know, we’re talking Latin around here. ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ from many one. Quid pro quo, bribery, bribery, and that is in the Constitution attached to the impeachment proceedings.
Q: So what was the bribe here?
Speaker Pelosi. The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into elections. That's bribery. Yes.
Q: Will you be looking at article of impeachment?
Speaker Pelosi. I don’t know that. We haven't made a decision to impeach. That's what the inquiry is about, and when the committees decide that, and they will decide what the articles are. What I am saying, that what is – the President has admitted to and says it’s perfect. I said it's perfectly wrong. It's bribery.
Speaker Pelosi. Well, all of this milieu is it seeking of the truth. It's called an inquiry, and if the President has something that is exculpatory – Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence – then he should make that known, and that's part of the inquiry, and so far we haven't seen that, but we welcome it, and that's what an inquiry is about.
This was bribery! Not “attempted”! Under 18 USC 201(b)(2) an official commits bribery when he “corruptly demands, seeks, receives, accepts, or agrees to receive or accept anything of value personally . . . in return for being influenced in the performance of any official act.” 1/ https://t.co/XvLwHLE1o7— Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) November 15, 2019
