House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced on Monday that they would be voting on a resolution to formalize the next steps of the ‘impeachment inquiry.’

From Daily Caller:

“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 early Monday.

But then later in the day, she came out and said that this was “not an impeachment resolution.”

So is it an actual formal floor vote to open an impeachment inquiry? Or something pretending to be in order to try to remove the Republicans’ good argument that they don’t have the proper authority and are acting without transparency?

Sounds like the latter.

Republicans called it all a sham.

The White House let Pelosi and her sham have it, according to Politico.

“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,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote.

Democrats are completely ridiculous. Put up or shut up. At this point, it’s just an effort to have their base think they’re doing something, to try to use it to find something to hang Trump with, and to distract from the Durham and IG investigations.
