House Democrats are sort of between the devil and the deep blue sea at this point.

They’ve so far failed to prove their case to the American people in terms of any impeachable offense with regard to Ukraine.

But if they vote on it now, it basically gets exposed and booted in the Senate. The Senate, in the control of Republicans, will call all the witnesses who the House Democrats refused to call – Rep. Adam Schiff, the whistleblower who is believed to be Eric Ciaramella, Hunter Biden and more.

So now they’re in a pickle of their own creation.

So what are they going to do? It sounds like they intend to punt.

Fox’s Chad Pergram dropped some news as to their intentions.

So they’re kicking it to the Judiciary Committee who was supposed to handle it to begin with and may just continue to hold hearings. The hearing on Wednesday with four professors who aren’t fact witnesses, who it just sounds like will be asked to offer their legal insight into the matter. That’s ridiculous. But they still need to put something out to shine up the mess they have to look like something.

Then they can spend a lot of time talking and deciding on appropriate charges.

This might be the real indicator right here:

“Not in the holiday spirit?” Translation: we got nothing and we’re probably going to punt until January. So they’re going to try to stretch it out as long as they can, milk it for what they can get, probably into next year. Will they even take a vote knowing once they do, it goes to the Senate with all the fun awaiting it there? And then senators would be required to stay in D.C. for hearings (and those running for president can’t campaign).

Democrats bought this mess. Hopefully, it backfires big time at the ballot box.
