Pelosi to participate in CNN town hall as House weighs impeachment

By Mark Preston, CNN

(CNN) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will participate in a CNN town hall in December, where she will take questions directly from a cross-section of voters as her colleagues consider articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

CNN's Jake Tapper will moderate the December 5 event that will air live at 9 p.m. ET from Washington, DC.

Pelosi has been critical of Trump's presidency -- from his policy initiatives to his personal conduct as commander-in-chief. Earlier this week, the speaker told CBS that she warned Trump to refrain from intimidating the "whistleblower" -- whose complaint about the President's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky prompted the impeachment inquiry.

While impeachment proceedings will dominate the headlines in December, Congress will be facing a deadline on funding for the federal government, and mounting pressure to pass a massive trade deal and to approve legislation to lower the costs of prescription drugs.

The town hall will air exclusively on CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español,'s homepage, across mobile devices via CNN's apps for iOS and Android, via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Android TV, SiriusXM Channels 116, 454, 795 and the Westwood One Radio Network.
