Steny Hoyer won’t commit to Thursday impeachment vote

October 29, 2019

  Yesterday Nancy Pelosi succumbed to Republican pressure and announced the House would vote to formalize an impeachment inquiry on Thursday. Putting party ahead of doing what they claim is best for the country, the Democrats have been reluctant to hold an official vote on impeachment proceedings because they are afraid of hurting vulnerable Democrats in states Donald Trump won. 

  Since the announcement these Democrats have voiced their frustration with having to go on the record instead of keeping their mouths shut and continuing the investigation as is, and now it is being reported that Steny Hoyer will not commit to holding the vote on Thursday.

House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) has signaled he will not commit to House Democrats voting this week to formalize their secret impeachment inquiry, even after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said a vote is expected to take place on Thursday.

“We’re going to have to consider whether or not it’s ready to go on Thursday. I hope that’s the case,” Hoyer told reporters on Tuesday when asked about the planned vote.

  Some Democrats (I.E. Maxine Waters) have been trying to impeach the President since before he was inaugurated and Steny Hoyer would have us believe that after three plus years they cannot have an impeachment resolution ready to go by Thursday?

 Yeah, I am not buying that line either, I would be willing to bet the Democrats do not have the votes yet and when he says “ready to go” he is not talking about the language  of the resolution but rather the support it needs.
