Nancy Pelosi is racing against the clock.
The impeachment inquiry is crumbling into pieces without evidence.
And Nancy Pelosi began to panic when this illegal act began to unravel.
Democrats are trying to keep impeachment secret and behind closed doors.
They haven’t yet held a vote on impeachment, although they have the majority and it is the way that impeachment has always started in the past.
If Nancy Pelosi conducted impeachment proceedings the way that they had been held in the past, she would be toast.
Because they don’t have anything more criminal to hit Trump with than the transcript of the phone call which he released himself.
They are trying to do the Mueller investigation all over again and it won’t help them anymore than the first one.
But the members of the Democratic Party are losing their trust in Nancy Pelosi and are urging her to do the impeachment process the right way.
“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.”
Rep. John Yarmuth, a Democratic Congressman from Kentucky, thinks that she is making a mistake with her tactics. “If Nancy asked me, I would say sure, let’s have a vote. Everybody’s on record, so they’re not going to vote any differently. What’s the danger in having a vote to formalize it?”
There is chance that the Democrats who are worried about the legality of what Nancy Pelosi is doing may break rank with the Party.
“Democrats have long argued that they don’t need a vote to launch formal impeachment proceedings, even if that had been the practice in prior presidential impeachment processes. In fact, House lawyers backed by Pelosi have made that argument in a succession of court cases seeking evidence to support their impeachment inquiry, and proponents of that position worry a formal vote would undercut their legal claims.
“Similarly, Democrats are worried that a near-term floor vote would drive away a handful of Republicans who are wavering over whether to support impeachment proceedings. A party-line vote would hand the White House another talking point, they argue: that impeachment is a purely partisan effort by Democrats.”
The White House says that the Democrats are directing a “constitutionally invalid” and “illegitimate” impeachment probe that frees lawmakers of “taking political accountability.”
It’s funny how Nancy Pelosi is avoiding the law while going after Trump to try and find if there is any possibility that he put a foot out of line.
Do you think that Nancy Pelosi needs to be brought to account for the improper impeachment proceedings?
