How many pens did US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi use to sign the impeachment bill for President Donald Trump on the 13th (local time)? The pens reflected in the press are two black pens engraved with Chairman Pelosi’s name, which are decorated with golden borders, giving it a luxurious atmosphere. On social media, it was immediately claimed that Pelosi used an expensive pen and that it was an 18K gold pen. There were also claims that suggested specific prices, ranging from $2,025 (2,230,000 won) to $2,500 (2,750,000 won) per bag, or claiming that both bags cost $15,000 (16.5 million won).

All of these claims are not true. According to FactCheck.org, run by the University of Pennsylvania’s Public Policy Center, the pen’s ornate border decoration is copper, not gold, and a bag costs around $20 (22,000 won). The manufacturer was found to be Garland Writing Instruments in Coventry, Rhode Island, USA. Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hamill said in an e-mail to FactCheck that “the price of a pen is less than $15 (16,500 won).”

There were other politicians who used Garland pens besides Pelosi. The company’s president, Becker, said he ordered Garland pens from the White House even during the days of President Trump and former President Obama.

The US House of Representatives passed a bill of impeachment against President Donald Trump on the 13th. In connection with the invasion of parliament on the 6th, President Trump applied the allegations of inciting civil war. All 222 Democrats voted in favor, and 10 out of 197 Republicans voted. As a result, Trump has been dishonored for being the first president in U.S. history to have passed two prosecutions in the House of Representatives while in office. The $15 pen used in this historic impeachment also drew many people’s attention.
