Live updates: White House expects impeachment, press secretary says; Trump calls Pelosi and Schiff ‘corrupt politicians

The White House expects the House to follow through with impeachment, press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Friday, as President Trump lashed out anew at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff.

Amid a spate of tweets, Trump called the two California Democrats leading the inquiry “corrupt politicians” and accused them of trying to take down the Republican Party. Trump’s comments came as a new poll showed the country deeply divided over whether he should be removed from office.

Schiff, meanwhile, is planning to release transcripts as early as next week of closed-door depositions in which witnesses have testified about Trump’s efforts to press Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
