Posted on 10/04/2019 7:56:42 PM PDT by where's_the_Outrage?
President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that he intends to send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stating that, until the full House votes to authorize the chamber's ongoing impeachment inquiry, the administration will not comply with subpoenas and other demands for witness testimony and documents.
Trump and Republicanswho've been daring Pelosi to vote on the matterbelieve that such a move would put vulnerable swing state Democrats in a tough spot and force members to more officially go on the record, as all but a handful of House Democrats support an impeachment inquiry into Trump.
The White House has refused for months to cooperate with various congressional subpoenas for witness testimonies and documents, and its directed current and former officials to not comply. And the response to subpoenas and information requests under Democrats' impeachment inquiry in recent weeks hasthus farbeen no different.

Until there’s a vote, there’s no impeachment.
And who exactly is this Ramsey Doucheberry that wrote this article?
Can Pelosi pass laws without a vote?
Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution states: “The House of Representatives shall [choose] their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”
That very well could mean that every member of the House would have to vote in favor of impeachment.
she can inquire all she wants.
and PDJT can flush all her inquires down the nearest toilet.
and definitely should.
we’ve all had far too much of these lies and bullsheit and obstructionism from the DNC ruling clique
she not passing a law she’s deciding on a house procedure.
Trump iOS free to cooperate of not.
The republicans should walk out of the committee till the proceedings are public and they have subpoena power.
Trump isn’t obligated to contribute to fishing expeditions. Tell Nacy to FOAD, because the next target will be how her and her husband made millions of dollars. Quid Pro Quo bitch, and you ain’t running for President. Then Star indicting Cummings, Schumer and the rest of the swamp crooks.
“Why Pelosi Doesn’t Need a Full House Vote for an Impeachment Inquiry, Despite Trump’s Demand”
Why President Trump doesn’t even need to invoke executive privilege to ignore partisan demand letters that have no legal authority.
Just ignore her completely till she does or she just tries to outright impeach.
Because if this had been Obama v Ryan you’d know they’d be screaming just as hard that Ryan was attempting a coup
Aren't they are supposed to hold a vote on rule changes?
Pelosi is running a kangaroo court.
Any proceedings or results of such court actions will be considered moot and void. A complete waste of time, for congress and the president and the country.
IOW, there is absolutely nothing serious being done with this so-called impeachment inquiry.
A regular court outside of Washington would have tossed out the case before it even got started, and those prosecuting the case would have been disbarred.
She "deemed" obamacare into existence. We are no longer a Republic.
My crystal ball sees Trump gaining another 5 points in the polls.
they aren’t “supposed” to do anything. She is speaker of the house. Power comes with the job. I said what she can do and i said what the republicans can do if they have more balls than her,
But a House vote is required by the courts for a subpoena.
So, the plan is to issue a bunch of unenforceable subpoenas and then have a House vote to impeach him for not responding to the unenforceable subpoenas- obstruction!
With the media working as hard as it can they just might fool enough people to get away with it!
That she did. And she is trying to deem the “impeachment” of President Trump into reality.
Hey, it’s Newsweek.

"iOS" = "is?"
