Nancy Pelosi made a move on impeachment that had Trump grinning from ear to ear
Nancy Pelosi knows that she needs to impeach President Trump.
If she doesn’t, he will almost certainly win re-election in 2020.
And Pelosi just made a move on impeachment that had Trump grinning from ear to ear.
Democrats have wanted President Trump impeached since the day he got into office.
And with Nancy Pelosi finally backing their efforts, they believe they will be able to do it at last.
Pelosi’s support comes on the heels of a fake news story relating to a so-called “whistleblower” report alleging wrongdoing from Trump in a call with the President of Ukraine.
But that story has been debunked to the point that the mainstream media is even slowing talk about it.
And now Pelosi just announced she is holding off on her impeachment efforts, delaying any votes on the measure.
The Daily Caller reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding off on a potential vote approving an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Politico reported Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter.
House leaders could reassess their decision at some point, the report notes. The report comes after Politico reported earlier Tuesday that House Democratic leaders are asking vulnerable members if they would support a formal vote.
Leaders are “getting a read on where these members are following a two-week recess,” an aide noted. Pelosi, who was reticent at first to promote an impeachment inquiry, is lobbying her caucus to go on the record.
“I’ll be talking about that later today, after I meet with my colleagues,” the California Democrat told reporters, referring to whether she intends to get a feel for how the moderate wing of her party feel about the idea.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy frequently criticizes Pelosi for refusing to hold a full House vote.
This is proof Pelosi doesn’t have the votes she needs to impeach Trump.
If she holds a vote and loses badly, it will be a massive embarrassment for the Democrat Party, who are hedging all their bets on impeachment.
