“Justice. Dignity. Solemnity. Sisterhood,” Christine Pelosi, the chairwoman of the California Democratic Party Women’s Caucus, wrote on Twitter.

The congresswoman is seen holding out her hand to Dingell as the two walk through the halls of the Capitol before the allotted six hours of debate, a necessary procedure before the measure can come to a full House vote later.
Pelosi and Dingell were among several female members who wore black to the event instead of the red traditionally worn on Wednesday to show solidarity with issues such as human trafficking and women's heart health awareness.
Dingell told The Hill that some of the women wanted to wear dark hues “because it is a somber day.”
Trump lashed out at the House Speaker ahead of the expected vote to impeach him, claiming she would be remembered as the “worst” Speaker of the House of Representatives.
In the scathing six-page letter sent to Pelosi on Tuesday, Trump branded impeachment a “fantasy” and accused House Democrats of “interfering in America’s elections.”
“You apparently have so little respect for the American People that you expect them to believe that you are approaching this impeachment somberly, reservedly, and reluctantly,” Trump wrote to the congresswoman. “No intelligent person believes what you are saying.”
Pelosi later called the letter “sick” and “ridiculous."
