McCarthy Rips Pelosi, Dems For Announcing Vote on Impeachment Resolution: ‘Today’s Backtracking is an Admission Process Has Been Botched From the Start’
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasted Speaker Pelosi and Democrats on Monday after they announced that a vote on an impeachment resolution will be held this week.
Rep. Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, who is chairman of the House Rules Committee, said on Monday that he plans to introduce a resolution on Tuesday to “ensure transparency” and “provide a clear path forward” in the coming impeachment inquiry.
Pelosi said in a letter to lawmakers that she plans a vote this week, likely on Thursday, reported The Hill.
To be clear, this is a resolution, not an article of impeachment — the measure is to establish some process procedures.
Monday’s announcement is an admission from the House Democrats that they have been conducting a sham impeachment inquiry in the basement of the Capitol for over a month.
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff has conducted unclassified impeachment hearings behind closed-doors only to selectively leak portions of the testimonies to the media in order to damage President Trump.
The Democrats are shredding the Constitution and denying President Trump due process with their secret coup headquarters.
Rep. McCarthy defended President Trump and said Republicans “will not legitimize the Schiff/Pelosi sham impeachment.”
“It’s been 34 days since Nancy Pelosi unilaterally declared her impeachment inquiry. Today’s backtracking is an admission that this process has been botched from the start. We will not legitimize the Schiff/Pelosi sham impeachment,” McCarthy said.
