Skip to comments.Pelosi: No House vote on impeachment inquiry [Developing]
Posted on 10/15/2019 3:58:06 PM PDT by jazusamo
Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued to stand firm Tuesday, insisting she will not stage a vote on the House floor to officially launch an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Trump and his Republican allies have been pressuring Pelosi to hold a formal vote to begin the investigation a move they believe would grant them more power and influence in the process, including the ability to call and subpoena their own witnesses.
Last month, Pelosi formally launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump after months of resisting calls from her caucus to do so, but she has faced pressure to hold an on-the-record vote from both Democrats seeking Trump's ouster and Republicans who view the issue as a political winner.
The impeachment inquiry followed Trump's admission that he pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, as well as a whistleblower's complaint that alleges Trump sought the probe in order to help his own chances ahead of the 2020 election.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and dismissed the investigation as a "witch hunt," while House Democrats have held a series of behind-closed-doors hearings in recent weeks with administration officials involved in Ukraine policy, including former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch on Friday, former Trump Russia adviser Fiona Hill on Monday and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent on Tuesday.
Pelosi's announcement came less than two hours before the Democratic 2020 primary field is set to hold its first debate since the impeachment inquiry began.

A whole lotta lying there...
Why doesn’t she just “deem” an impeachment?
“Last month, Pelosi formally launched an impeachment inquiry”
No she did not. She launched a fishing expedition that is not authorized by the Constitution or Federal law.
I don't think he knows what formally means. She is refusing to formally launch impeachment inquiry because she hasn't' taken a vote.
There sure is!
Something wrong, Wong.
Have I missed something? Or is this just some more of the new, ever changing narrative?
All smoke and mirrors to coverup massive Democrat Corruption it seems.
Trump has won--yet again! He will be re-elected by a landslide.
The Democrats' worst nightmare will come true: the TRUTH about them will be made public. From their viewpoint, NOTHING could be more horrifying!
The world will be a better place when we can say:
“We have to impeach Trump before we can find out what he has done.” Nancy Pelosi
Death by a thousand cuts
You missed the full text of the news lead: “The justified secret impeachment of Trump over some serious crimes he definitely committed in the Ukraine is primarily centered on his illegally seeking information about the Bidens whom everyone knows are innocent of any wrongdoing, whom no one needs to investigate, and in any event were cleared of everything by some thorough investigation by a high falutin’ government outfit years ago.” So shut up and talk about Trumps “crimes”.
Until I see the video of the rats and their propagandists (the media) eat that crap sandwich, on TV, I will not be satisfied.
Does that mean that today’s testimony did not quite as planned?
Pelosi is 80 years old, half-senile (although she seems like St. Thomas Aquinas compared to Biden who can’t even identify the three genders) and she was always stupid. What do you expect?
