U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday President Donald Trump “will be held accountable” after the White House said it would refuse to cooperate with the congressional impeachment inquiry of the Republican president.

“The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction,” Pelosi, a Democrat, said in a statement.

“Mr. President, you are not above the law. You will be held accountable,” she said.
