Pelosi Delays Impeachment Inquiry Authorization Vote, Claims ‘All Roads Seem to Lead to Putin’ With Trump
Wait. Putin is president of Ukraine? I know that’s what he wants, but last time I checked, Ukraine broke away from Russia in the early 1990s.
The far-left played Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. HARD.
She announced today she will not bring an impeachment vote to the House floor. As she stumbled in her explanation, she threw out, “All roads seem to lead to Putin with the president.”
Um, the impeachment inquiry is in regard to Ukraine, ma’am. You know, Russia’s foe.
You can laugh now because it seems like the Democrats’ war against President Donald Trump chips away every single day.
It all started the day Trump released the phone call transcript between himself and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It had no “quid pro quo” or anything impeachable.
Zelensky himself has said many times Trump did not pressure or blackmail him into investigating Vice President Joe Biden’s role in the firing of Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shoklin in 2016.
As usual, Pelosi spewed out the typical talking points. I wonder if they ever think we truly believe them:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced after meeting with the House Democratic caucus on Tuesday that there will be no vote — at least for now — on the launch of formal impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
“There’s no requirement that we have a vote, and so at this time we will not be having a vote,” Pelosi said. “We’re not here to call bluffs — we’re here to find the truth, to uphold the Constitution of the United States. This is not a game for us. This is deadly serious.”
A congressional aide familiar with House Democrats’ discussions told Fox News that many House Democrats did not want to be seen as letting the White House dictate how the House conducted itself. Last week, the White House sent a fiery letter to House Democrats announcing that it would not cooperate with their inquiry, for several reasons — including that, contrary to past precedent, no formal vote had been held on whether to begin impeachment proceedings.
Pelosi ripped those arguments: “They have no substance. They can’t defend the president, so they’re going to process,” she said.
In a head-turning moment, Pelosi told reporters, “All roads seem to lead to Putin with the president” — even though Democrats began their probe because of the president’s actions concerning Ukraine, not Russia.
ACKCHYUALLY, Madam Speaker and Democrats (especially you, Rep. Adam Schiff), you do not have a case against Trump.
I thought you were impeaching him for working with Putin’s enemies in Ukraine. Pick one collusion narrative and stick with it. https://t.co/BaV18QjXZk

The Democrats have fallen off the cliff. They have reached the point of no return so why bother stopping even if it makes them look crazy?
We all saw it coming, especially when Schiff all of a sudden decided Congress does not need to hear from the whistleblower. You know, the person who started this whole mess when he/she made a complaint based on hearsay and media reports.
Schiff has shot himself in the foot many times:
- Adam Schiff Started Hearing With Fake Quotes From Trump, Ukrainian Transcript
- REPORT: Schiff Knew of Whistle-Blower Accusations Before Complaint Was Filed
- Report: “Whistle-blower” Failed to Disclose Contact with Rep. Schiff’s Staff or Intel Committee Staff
But maybe this is why Pelosi and Schiff have changed their minds:
- Reports: Ukraine Whistleblower had a “Professional Relationship” With 2020 Democratic Candidate
- Report: Ukraine Whistleblower Worked With Biden When He was Vice President
The resolution to censure Schiff — who has become a favorite target of Republicans for his role in the Trump impeachment inquiry — was first introduced late last month by Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, and has the support of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., among other ranking Republicans in the lower chamber of Congress.
Democrats have the majority and control the floor in the House, but Republicans could still attempt to force a vote on the matter.
“Schiff simply does not have the gravitas that a weighty procedure such as impeachment requires,” Biggs wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. “He has repeatedly shown incredibly poor judgment. He has persistently and consistently demonstrated that he has such a tremendous bias and animus against Trump that he will say anything and accept any proffer of even bogus evidence to try to remove the president from office.”
