Trump White House dares Pelosi to hold impeachment inquiry vote: report

The White House reportedly plans to send Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) a letter as early as Friday saying President Trump doesn’t need to comply with Democratic lawmakers until the full House chamber formally approves an impeachment inquiry against him, Axios reported.

By sending Pelosi the letter, Trump and the White House are aiming to force House Democrats in toss-up districts to take a formal stance on impeachment, Axios noted, adding that Republican sources say that even as the chamber’s minority party, GOP lawmakers can have a greater say in impeachment hearings and other parts of an inquiry once the full chamber formally approves it.

The letter to Pelosi and the chairmen of the six House committees participating in the inquiry was drafted as of Thursday night but had not been finalized or signed, according to Axios.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Pelosi announced last week that the chamber would launch a formal impeachment inquiry against Trump after a whistleblower complaint said he urged Ukraine’s president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter about business dealings in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

2020 is probably going to be one of the ugliest Presidential campaign years I can remember for a very long time; I turned 70 this last year, so that is a lot of Presidential campaigns.

You have a sitting Republican President, Donald Trump, generally matched against former Vice President Democrat Biden both of whom love to "run their mouths", sometimes, does a real disservice to the causes they allege to espouse.

To date, nothing can be found tying President Trump to any impeachable acts; but Biden HAD to shoot his mouth off at a CFR meeting last year, about how he was able to turn the Ukrainian Investigatory "heat" off of his son, Hunter.

Bragging about this in public, was perhaps, not the smartest thing Bident could have been doing, but, oh well... Biden is hardly admired for his intellectual capabilities.

Please be aware that Joe Biden did this as a sitting Vice President; this kind of international "arm twisting" is one big, fat, hairy "no no" for a sitting Vice President to do, so yes, there should be some reasonable, bi-partisan investigation which needs to be done here.

That President Trump had a call with current Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky (as a mutual pact with Ukraine made this both necessary, and critically important), is not an impeachable offense; the Democrats are trying desperately to turn it into something it is, and was not, illegal, on the part of a sitting President.

But Democrats are insisting that the bringing up of this issue now, is an attempt to destroy Biden's potential bid for the Presidency in 2020, and therefore counts as an impeachable offense.

An impeachable offense must follow the rules and definitions of National law as they pertain to such a charge; and thus far, the best I can see of it, the accusations raised against President Trump, do not meet the legal definition of a crime.

So I would like to strongly caution my Democratic brothers and sisters, that if you think you can win in 2020 by playing this horrifically losing hand,, and perhaps get Trump out of office before the end of his first term, you are most probably very sadly mistaken.

What you will do, if you continue to persist with this ploy, is insure that Trump's base will come out in force for his re-election, and the states you gained in the mid-terms, will again swing back to Republican Congressional control.
