Democrats Succumb to Public Pressure, Will Hold Impeachment Vote on Thursday
Here we go.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s defense have crumbled.
The Democratic Party’s secretive “formal impeachment inquiry” will be no more come Thursday, as the House of Representatives will finally vote to authorize the proceedings – a move that President Donald Trump has been imploring them to do for some time.
While that may seem like a counterintuitive idea, Trump’s hopes are to move the impeachment charade into overdrive, wrapping up with a Senate vote of acquittal well before the 2020 election takes place in just over a year.
It looks as though the President will now be getting his way.
House Democrats will vote on Thursday to establish the procedures for their ongoing impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday afternoon.
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), chairman of House Rules Committee, said he will introduce the resolution’s text for approval on Tuesday and the panel will move to mark it up by Wednesday.
“As committees continue to gather evidence and prepare to present their findings, I will be introducing a resolution to ensure transparency and provide a clear path forward,” McGovern said in a statement. “This is the right thing to do for the institution and the American people.”
The vote will also provide some oversight of the process for Republicans, who have long complained about the “secret” impeachment proceedings being steered by House Intel Chair Adam Schiff.
Holding Representatives accountable and on-record regarding this impeachment “inquiry” was another goal of the White House, particularly as it pertains to vulnerable Democratic lawmakers in Trump-supporting districts as 2020 approaches.
