Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who has been receiving backlash for not taking impeachment actions against Donald Trump, is now expected to announce a “formal impeachment inquiry” into Trump by “this afternoon.”
According to MSNBC news analyst Howard Fineman, a very “solid” House leadership source said that the Speaker will also “imply that she herself favors impeachment:

“Later today,” Speaker Pelosi hours ago told NBC News, “I will make an announcement after I meet with my chairmen, my leadership and my caucus.”
That meeting is slated for 4 PM.
