WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is supporting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s formal impeachment inquiry, was asked on Tuesday what law he thinks President Donald Trump broke during his conversation with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“I’ll be talking about it later,” Schumer said in response.

Later in the day, Schumer wrote on Twitter that “the Senate by unanimous consent passed my resolution calling for the whistleblower complaint to be provided to Congress as required by law. That means every GOP Senator supports the whistleblower report being immediately provided to the Senate and House Intel Committees.”

When announcing the impeachment inquiry, Pelosi said that “no one is above the law.”
