Dude's Gotta F****ing Go - Time for Impeachment is Finally Here
By: Kayla Pasacreta
Washington Post reported Tuesday that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will back an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump Tuesday afternoon. Pelosi has been hesitant of speaking on impeachment for months, and today is her first signal that she’s ready to adhere to the growing impeachment calls from the Democratic Party.
Mounting calls for impeachment after a whistleblower complaint last week that Trump may have withheld aid from Ukraine to pressure officials to investigate his political rival and Democratic front-runner candidate Joe Biden. For the past 3 years, we’ve witnessed this President average about 8 crimes a day (seriously). It’s never been clearer that it is beyond time for impeachment. Currently, 172 Democratic members of the House have supported moving forward with impeachment.
Opening an impeachment inquiry into President Trump is not the same as an impeachment vote, but it will give the House necessary resources to further pursue impeachment. An impeachment inquiry will allow the judiciary committee to build a stronger case for obtaining certain materials protected from disclosure by statute (like tax returns, transcripts, etc).
The road to impeachment is just beginning, and you know we are living for it.
