According to a Thursday night report by Axios, the White House will soon be sending a letter directly to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi daring her to hold an official vote on her party’s impeachment inquiry.
Axios claims two sources familiar with the letter indicated that “[t]he White House is planning to send Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter as soon as Friday arguing that President Trump and his team can ignore lawmakers' demands until she holds a full House vote formally approving an impeachment inquiry.”
The White House has not yet responded with a comment but President Trump has been forthright with his position and about his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“This isn’t about a Campaign, this is about Corruption on a massive scale!” he tweeted late Thursday night.
Pelosi in a speech said that it is up to the president “to exonerate himself” of Democrats’ charges against him, according to MRCTV. She said in a letter to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Thursday that there "is no requirement under the Constitution, under House Rules, or House precedent that the whole House vote before proceeding with an impeachment inquiry.”
The House Speaker on Thursday also voiced her support for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) who during the so-called “Whistleblower hearing” made up his own version of events regarding the President’s phone call with the Ukrainian leader.
“He did not make it up,” said Pelosi in an interview with ABC News, despite how Schiff himself admitted it was a “parody” reading,” as MRCTV reported.
