Pelosi Says House Will Vote On Resolution For Impeachment

Published

on

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Monday that the House will vote on a resolution to formalize the next steps of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

The resolution will be the first floor vote on impeachment since Pelosi and House Democrats launched their inquiry a month ago, Politico reported.

“We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said in a letter to Democrats.

Despite Pelosi’s early reluctance to push for impeachment, there are currently 228 Democrats who support impeachment or an impeachment inquiry. Pelosi has said she believes Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised approximately $1 million dollars the day after Pelosi came out in favor of the impeachment of Trump for the first time after meeting with her caucus.

Democrats have continued to send congressional subpoenas to those close to Trump for documents related to the ongoing scandal regarding Trump’s phone call with the President of Ukraine and whether Trump asked him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. military aid to Ukraine. The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight committees are all investigating Trump, his cabinet members, and closest allies.

Many of Pelosi’s Democratic colleagues previously pushed for impeaching Trump, including Democratic Texas Rep. Al Green, who broke with Pelosi when he vowed to force a vote to impeach Trump in late March. Green, who previously had several bills to impeach Trump overwhelmingly rejected by the House of Representatives, called for a third impeachment vote. Pelosi said impeachment was “just not worth it” in a March interview.

Pelosi previously said she would not hold a full vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry, which Trump has continued to call for.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

    I just hope that all this business of the impeachment hits Pelosi right back into her ugly face. She needs a quick kick to her behind to wake her up and realize that she no longer belongs in the position she’s holding.

    The Democrats would much rather keep this “investigation” in a (secret) Star-Chamber environment. But Pelosi is backed into a corner. The American people are forcing her to make it public.

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    This should come back to bite them all in the butt! You don’t impeach a president simply due to your loss and dislike!

  • Lee Price says:

    First of all, the “letter” they sent can be found on the Government web site. Make no mistake, this was “letters” sent to people, and not “subpoenas!” This is all for show to make Americans have doubt. It is all public knowledge that SUBPOENAS HAVE LEGAL RAMIFICATIONS, period. Think, has anyone gone to jail for not responding? NO. Just because Adam Schiff says that, or anyone else for that matter,” your failure to comply shall constitute evidence of obstruction”, does not mean that that is the case. Talk about bullying and lying. So sick of these grand-standers.
