nancy Pelosi has announced that she is fast-tracking impeachment hearings against President Trump after receiving orders from her boss, AOC.
Her goal appears to be is to take an impeachment vote in the House, if successful would give her party time to calm down the many detractors of impeachment before the 2020 elections. She claims to be making this move because Americans are now siding with the Democrats, regardless of the many polls that show that the American voters are opposed to such action by large numbers.
They can impeach President Trump in the House simply because they fear his reelection but once it goes to the Senate it requires proof of an actual crime, which the Democrats do not currently have.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced late last week that she plans on “fast-tracking” an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, stemming from allegations that Trump demanded information about Joe Biden’s son from Ukrainian authorities.
USA Today reports that although Congress can’t officially “fast-track” an impeachment inquiry, House leaders can move as quickly as possible to get the inquiry on the calendar, and that’s precisely what Pelosi and her team intend to do.
So far, Democrats have had difficulty transitioning the evidence they’ve been provided into an open-and-shut case, but that’s not stopping a select House panel from scheduling depositions, even though Congress leaves this week for a two-week vacation ahead of the final session of the year. USA Today suggests that some in the Democratic leadership want articles of impeachment on the table by Thanksgiving so that the ensuing hearings have the greatest impact possible on the 2020 presidential election cycle (even if it looks like Democrats on the trail won’t benefit).
