No Escape for Pelosi as Democrats Push Hard for Impeachment Vote

This certainly doesn’t fit into Madam Speaker’s proposed timeline, but it would be a dereliction of duty for Pelosi to ignore them.

The state of play in Washington DC has now become focused on timing over all else.

At this point, there is little doubt that Donald Trump will face an official impeachment vote at some point, we are just not sure when.

The President would like this process to get underway sooner rather than later, hoping to be finished with the entire debacle before the 2020 election.  Furthermore, but getting the trial started in the Senate ASAP, the President all but guarantees that he will be acquitted – a possibility that would likely lead to a landslide victory for the incumbent Republican.

The Democrats, however, would like nothing more than for their song and dance routine to crescendo in about one years’ time from today, creating maximum discomfort for the voting populace.

Unfortunately, the Democrats are getting played by the President and his bombastic behavior, and are pressuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to move up the timeline significantly.

Politico reported:

Some Democratic lawmakers and aides have begun to say privately — and, to a lesser extent, publicly — that the House should just vote to formalize the inquiry, robbing the GOP of its main talking point.

Though a small but growing chorus of Democrats has started urging a vote simply to undercut this GOP talking point, others say that nothing will stop Trump and his supporters from claiming Democrats’ efforts are unfair and inconsistent with past impeachment procedures. They say the party shouldn’t take the White House’s bait, arguing that the president’s defenders will simply find other reasons to not comply with the inquiry.

President Trump has consistently and repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in the matter at hand, even going so far as to release a memorandum of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Selensky – a conversation that is part and parcel to the left’s latest impeachment push.
