House Votes on Impeachment Inquiry Rules

The House of Representatives will vote today to approve impeachment procedures for President Trump through a resolution to establish the rules for public hearings.

The impeachment inquiry was launched by Democrats to investigate President Trump over his phone call with the president of Ukraine.

Today’s vote is intended to blunt Republican attacks over the unfairness of the impeachment effort to date which has been led by House Intelligence Committee chairman Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) behind closed doors.

President Trump is urging Republicans to fight the impeachment on the substance of the Democrats’ claims.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) outlined Democrats’ concerns over the president’s phone call when she announced the initial impeachment inquiry in September.

Pelosi spoke with reporters about President Trump and tweeted there was a “betrayal of his oath.”

The political consequences of the impeachment effort will be determined in the future but President Trump’s campaign is not waiting to put its views before voters.

President Trump’s campaign launched an ad during Game 7 of the World Series to contrast the president’s accomplishments with the Democrats’ impeachment effort.

The impeachment effort by Democrats will backfire.

Democrats’ anti-Trump effort does nothing to advance the concerns of Americans.
