Pelosi holding off on vote for impeachment inquiry for now

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. Pelosi also responded to a question on why they wouldn’t just vote to call the White House’s bluff by stating they’re not there to call bluffs.

Political theater continues with the Democrats showing a total lack of conviction in their cause. :D They have no case, no support, no chance, and are not willing to make it official for fear of the results.

I guess they didn't find enough (or any) hard evidence that would make it worth while to continue the process.

Apparently the Dems no longer legislate anything. They let the activist (i.e. Dem appointed) judges litigate outcomes they desire. While in the mean time holding 'secret' investigations and making public allegations with no substance.

Pelosi would rather just investigate forever. Maybe she figured out that Trump wants her to impeach him because he knows the Senate will never vote to remove him from office.

"Peeep!" I'm blowing the whistle! Trump is interfering with international politics, AND requesting quid pro quo. He's withholding $CASH in exchange for a favor! With a President of another country, no less! Let me paraphrase (which is allowed, as I only heard this from a colleague), "Stop bombing the Kurds, I'll personally see to it you get $100 billion." I need protection, now. The Republicans will come after me and kill me... oh, that's the Democrats. Sorry. I'll testify in secret. And in writing only. In pencil, should I need to change something later on. And on rice paper, in case I need to eat my words.

I don’t think Hunter admitting to soft corruption on camera did any help.

we need to investigate till the election is over and after he wins. we will start investigating his taxes and after that we're out of ideas but we'll find something else to investigate.

If you wanted to damage Trump, you should have done it closer to the election! Now he’s going to come out of this mess, unscathed, while the Democrats scramble furiously to put together a good look for 2020 underneath the untainted image of Trump.

I have no evidence for this but I’ve always suspected the usual Dems want something to hang over Trump in 2020. I thought it would be the Russia collusion bit all the way through but they couldn’t drag it out any longer, not for lack of trying. This is just the same monkey, different dress. I don’t think they ever actually believed they could remove him. I think the goal has always been to have a weapon against him in 2020 in hopes that it would sway the non-political/ middle of the road/fence sitter votes.

They want to hold secret meetings with disgruntled has-beens so they can control the narrative. They know they don't have anything. The just want to keep people in doubt until the election.

One has to wonder what will happen when one of these unethical Dems eventually gets elected President, but with a Republican majority in the House and Senate? I'd put the chances of an impeachment at 100%.
