Nancy Pelosi's allies swell number of Democrats seeking to impeach Trump (not really)

The ranks of pro-impeachment-inquiry Democrats are growing each week, but it’s still not enough to move the needle for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

As of last week, more than 80 Democrats were calling for an impeachment inquiry, which is a critical first step toward attempting to oust the president.

Most strikingly, the count now includes some devoted Pelosi supporters. Reps. Janice D. Schakowsky of Illinois, Joseph P. Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Eric Swalwell of California have joined the inquiry camp in the past few weeks.

But the pro-impeachment forces still make up only slightly more than one-third of the House Democratic Caucus, and they are divided over how far and how fast to go.

“It’s still a relatively small number comparative to the totality of the Democratic Caucus,” Capri Cafaro, an executive in residence at American University and former state senator in Ohio, told The Washington Times. “There are nuances there that people are trying to walk fine lines to basically say they are open to impeachment without pulling the trigger.”

“This is right for me and my district,” Rep. James A. Himes, Connecticut Democrat, told reporters last week. “One of the things that held me back was my concern for members in districts that are more appreciative of Donald Trump than mine are, and I still worry about that.”

No crimes mentioned. The Snowflake Caucus is just taking a poll.

C’mon Nancy. You can talk the talk but can you walk the walk?
Or has your mouth written a check your ass can’t cash?

I’ve seen Cafaro many times on FNC. She’s actually uncommonly reasonable for a democrat.

The Leftist have no intent of actual impeachment, only forever the promise of impeachment to their rabid base, along with a plea to “chip in” in their solicitation for campaign funds.

It’s too late to impeach. The election cycle has begun.
