Weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi backed an “impeachment inquiry” against President Trump over a single phone call.
Numerous critics, including Republican congressmen, called out Pelosi’s radical move. She claimed the House was moving forward with impeachment—despite an official vote from the entire body. She was about to put forward a real vote, but surprise! She made a last-minute move.
Don’t be fooled by the fake news: this “impeachment inquiry” is a sham. That is one of the reasons why Rep. Adam Schiff is holding hearings behind closed doors. A man known for leaking sensitive information to the press is refusing to divulge anything learned from these meetings.
That’s because the House never gave him, nor Pelosi, the authority to pursue impeachment. The entire House has not been given a chance to vote on the move. Pelosi and her gang of Democrats are moving forward with an inquiry in defiance of the government.
That means nothing will come of this impeachment push. You can’t hold someone guilty without even having a trial. And the House can’t impeach the president without holding a vote before the entire body.
Pelosi has been pushing this “inquiry” as a stunt for the media. As the Democrats’ 2020 candidates look worse and worse, they needed something to give them an advantage.
Going into the next election, they wanted to use impeachment simply as a way to slander Trump.
But Pelosi has no right to abuse our government to get her way. Democrats are extorting our laws and system just to hurt a political rival. The very thing they accused Trump of doing.
Republicans continue to call for a formal vote on impeachment—knowing it would not pass and halt Pelosi’s scheme. She was almost about to hold one, but at the last second backed down.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding off on a potential vote approving an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump…
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy frequently criticizes Pelosi for refusing to hold a full House vote.
“Unfortunately, you have given no clear indication as to how your impeachment inquiry will proceed — including whether key historical precedents or basic standards of due process will be observed,” McCarthy, a California Republican, said in an Oct. 3 letter to Pelosi. She dismissed the letter, saying Democrats don’t need a formal vote…
“In the history of our nation, the House of Representatives has never attempted to launch an impeachment inquiry against the president without a majority of the House taking political accountability for that decision by voting to authorize such a dramatic constitutional step,” the White House said in a statement to Pelosi.

There is one good reason Pelosi called off the vote. She knows if she put impeachment before the entire House, it wouldn’t pass.
There are many Democrat congressmen from states that overwhelmingly support President Trump. If they all voted to back impeachment—or even just the inquiry—they would get destroyed in the 2020 election. They are hanging on by a thread. They need to appear cooperative with the president.
But that’s not possible, these days. Democrats have declared an all-out war on Trump’s America First agenda. They will stop at nothing to defeat him and return us to the Dark Ages when our leaders put lobbyists and illegal aliens ahead of Americans.
If Pelosi put forward a vote, it would kill impeachment in its tracks. So, like a coward she is, she’s “tabling” the vote. All so she could keep pushing this bogus inquiry, giving the left-wing media ammunition against the president.
The longer this charade goes on, the more likely those vulnerable Democrats will lose. Americans are outraged over this impeachment push. They want Congress to work with the president to help the country. Do you think voters will back men and women who sat by and let Pelosi pull this stunt?
I don’t think so. If those Democrats were smart, they’d gang up on Pelosi and make her end this inquiry.
But, in the end, they’re just as cowardly as she is.
