Nancy Pelosi and her allies in Congress were trying to pull a fast one on the American people.
The Speaker is trying to rush through an impeachment process so the public never finds out what is really going on.
But then Devin Nunes went on Fox News and let the cat out of the bag on a secret that will destroy Pelosi.
Nancy Pelosi made waves when she announced her support for an impeachment inquiry.
However, there was a truth Pelosi was not willing to tell.
And, appearing on Fox News, Devin Nunes pulled back the curtain on the charade by exposing the fact that Democrats have not actually officially voted to start a formal impeachment inquiry as is required by the Constitution.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) accused Democrats of trying to hide impeachment proceedings by keeping them in the House Intelligence Committee and stated that “this is not a real impeachment.”
Nunes said, “[T]his is not a real impeachment. This is like a faux impeachment. What they’re doing is, by keeping this at the House Intelligence Committee, we’re not built — the House Intelligence Committee is not a place to run impeachment hearings. So, what they’re trying to do is they’re hiding this from the American people. They don’t want the normal process.”
Democrats don’t want their most vulnerable incumbents in the House having to officially go on record with the vote.
But there is a reason an official vote to start an inquiry is required.
Once an official impeachment inquiry gets started, Democrats in the House lose control of some of the process.
Republicans get subpoena power for witnesses and documents as due process kicks in.
Right now Democrats control the story.
That will not always be the case once an official impeachment inquiry begins and Pelosi is trying to push that day off for as long as possible.
