Last Tuesday marked a significant shift in American politics. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry after months of pressure from some of her Democratic colleagues

The decision came in the wake of revelations that President Trump withheld military aid before calling the president of Ukraine and asking him to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son. The whistleblower complaint also alleges that records of the call were moved to a separate, more tightly secured system

MPR News host Kerri Miller spoke with Ned Foleyprofessor of law and director of the election law program at Ohio State law schooland Marjorie Hershey, professor of political science at Indiana Universityabout how the impeachment inquiry process works.
