Republicans Torch Pelosi's Sudden Decision to Hold Impeachment Inquiry Vote

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday announced her intention to bring about a formal vote on the Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Her main reason for calling a vote stems from Republicans saying the Democrats' impeachment inquiry isn't an actual inquiry because the full House has yet to vote and authorize various Committees to investigate.

For weeks, Republicans have called on Pelosi to bring about a vote on the Impeachment inquiry. Pelosi has avoided the move as a means of protecting Democrats in districts that voted for President Trump in 2016 because then there's no solid record of the representative supporting the impeachment inquiry. 

Republicans blasted Pelosi for her sudden decision, saying she's finally admitting that the process was never right from the get-go.

Republicans have taken issue with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) leading the impeachment inquiry efforts because of his clear disdain for President Trump. For more than two years he continually told Americans he had the "smoking gun" that would prove the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the very guy Democrats handpicked to lead the Russia probe, found there was no collusion. 

Once Pelosi gave Schiff the green light to begin an impeachment inquiry, Schiff flat out lied about what Trump said during his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Republicans have argued he cannot be impartial in this situation.

Sen. Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believes Pelosi made the announcement because of a resolution he introduced that required Congress to provide Trump with due process.

Democrats launched their bogus impeachment inquiry the night before President Trump released the transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. They claimed Trump threatened to withhold military aid if Ukraine failed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, for corruption. While Biden was vice president and handling internal relations in Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration, Hunter was being paid $50,000 by a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no natural energy experience. The transcript showed no quid pro quo.
