Default How the Impeachment Process Works

In her announcement yesterday Speaker Pelosi simply declared 6 committes of the House would conduct an impeachment investigation. The Speaker on a whim can begin impeachment proceedings.

Quote:
During the Nixon and Clinton impeachment efforts, the full House voted for resolutions directing the House Judiciary Committee to open the inquiries. But it is not clear whether that step is strictly necessary, because impeachment proceedings against other officials, like a former federal judge in 1989, began at the committee level.

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, has claimed — including in court filings — that the panel is already engaged in an impeachment investigation. Mr. Trump’s Justice Department has argued that since there has been no House resolution, the committee is just engaged in a routine oversight proceeding.

Ms. Pelosi did not say in her announcement that she intended to bring any resolution to the floor.
Previous impeachment proceedings began with an authorization from a floor vote but Pelosi knows that would not pass. So, she made up authority to launch impeachment without a floor vote to placate the Resistance hyenas in her caucus.

You beat me to it...

ANNOUNCING a formal impeachment inquiry does NOT mean that an ACTUAL formal impeachment inquiry is or will take place...

For the average American who doesn't know the legal aspects and terminology (And Pelosi and the Dems know this), it 100% sounds like Pelosi is making it official...

Her exact words

THERE...WAS...NO...VOTE...

...but millions of Americans HEARD her say it, and therefore, CONCLUDE that all requirements must've been met for her to make that official announcement....and that would be a lie...

there were already several committees (investigative processes) ongoing and she'll bring them under the umbrella of the overall impeachment inquiry.
An inquiry is an investigation to see if there is reason to impeach. Then a committee (not sure what it's called but it's already set up for looking into legal matters) votes and depending on that outcome the full house votes.
You don't vote first on impeachment. You investigate then you vote.
More and more Democrats had tried to push her to start an impeachment inquiry but she resisted. This latest shocker was kind of like she had to or we are no longer a democracy. not even a free republic as your side likes to call it. we are more like a banana republic. so circumstances forced her hand.

if they do vote to impeach it will be on charges of ___x, y. and/or z.
those charges must be proved within reason in the senate who will vote to convict or not. so far no president has ever been convicted but two have been impeached. it hurt one and seemed to help the other politically.
politics aside it is a serious matter and no one should take it lightly.

We have had multiple Congressional investigations and even 2 years of a special counsel witch hunt at the behest of the Resistance lynch mob. Despite the extensive investigations already completed Resistance Democrats insist on engaging in reinvestigating the investigation but call it an impeachment inquiry.

Impeachment inquiries empowers the House committee with more investigative tools such as bypassing most claims of executive privilege which is why the status was sought by House floor vote for the Nixon and Clinton impeachment investigations.

Pelosi didn't seek impeachment inquiry status for the Resistance jihad. Instead, she just declared the ongoing Democrat witchhunt as an impeachment inquiry, a meaningless gesture to appease the far Left squad.

Based on Salty's comment, it seems to have worked.
