Default Pelosi's Sidestep on Impeachment Vote Cuts Both Ways

Nancy Pelosi today confirmed the House Democrats drive to impeach Trump is a charade with the announcement the House would begin an impeachment inquiry without a floor vote to validate witchhunt part 2.

With House Democrats barreling toward impeaching President Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is continuing to stave off a full House vote authorizing a formal inquiry Ė a step Republicans argue not only insulates vulnerable Democrats running in red districts but shuts down the GOPís ability to wage a legal offensive of its own.
According to the OP Pelosi has enough Democrat votes to win approval for an impeachment inquiry. Despite her spokesperson claiming a vote isn't required but the last 2 impeachment proceedings have begun with floor votes authorizing an inquiry. Of course only Democrats would vote for the inquiry clearly exposing the partisan nature of the effort. I believe the more powerful reason is that a formal impeachment inquiry would upset the carefully staged impeachment charade put on by the Democrats because Republicans would be able to issue subpoenas. Losing control of the impeachment narrative with pesky Republicans making the case there is reason to investigate Joe Biden's influence peddling undercuts their delicate conspiracy theory of Trump soliciting false information for political purposes.

Traditionally impeachment inquiries are conducted in the House judiciary committee or by a select committee but that doesn't fit Pelosi's Star chamber approach.

This time, that committee is not driving the train. Instead, when the House is in recess the next two weeks, members of two panels -- House Intelligence, Oversight and Government Reform, and Foreign Affairs -- plan to hold hearings and interviews on impeachment.
The intelligence committee chaired by the reprehensible Adam Schiff who for years claimed there was absolute proof of Trump's collusion with the Russians only to disappear from the spotlight like Baghdad Bob when the Mueller report exposed his lies. The same clown who discarded any pretense of honest inquiry by making up a "parody" based on his hatred of Trump is now going to be a key player in the Resistance Democrats carnival of lies masquerading as impeachment.

As befits a carnival side show the ersatz impeachment inquiry is going to be conducted while the full House isn't in session. Pelosi will never allow the House to return early to curb the committes partisan excesses no matter how abusive and dishonest they become.

What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.
