Pelosi Drops The Hammer After GOP Leaders Called To End Trump Impeachment Inquiry

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was not phased by Republicans who attempted to pressure her into ending the impeachment inquiry.

In a written response to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Pelosi noted that Donald Trump had publicly called on China to investigate his political rivals, giving her a bigger reason to continue impeachment.

“As you know, our Founders were specifically intent on ensuring that foreign entities did not undermine the integrity of our elections,” Pelosi wrote to McCarthy.

“I received your letter this morning shortly after the world witnessed President Trump on national television asking yet another foreign power to interfere in the upcoming 2020 elections,” she continued. “We hope you and other Republicans share our commitment to following the facts, upholding the Constitution, protecting our national security, and defending the integrity of our elections at such a serious moment in our nation’s history.”

Pelosi also wrote in her letter that there is not a requirement under the Constitution or House rules, or under House precedent, that the House hold a vote before proceeding with an impeachment inquiry.

Pelosi’s response came after McCarthy had argued earlier Thursday that the inquiry should not move forward without members establishing “equitable rules and procedures.”

“I should hope that if such an extraordinary step were to be contemplated a fourth time it would be conducted with an eye towards fairness, objectivity, and impartiality. Unfortunately, you have given no clear indication as to how your impeachment inquiry will proceed — including whether key historical precedents or basic standards of due process will be observed,” he wrote.
