Despite what Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats say publicly, the Left badly wants to remove President Trump from office.
That’s why Pelosi and her allies tried to launch an impeachment inquiry without the American people noticing.
But that’s when Trey Gowdy completely shut down Nancy Pelosi’s sneak attack plan to impeach Trump.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler is trying to have it both ways.
Nadler supports impeachment, but he doesn’t want to calls his committee’s investigation a “formal impeachment hearing.”
Gowdy called out this nonsense during an appearance on Fox News.
Independent Journal Review reports:
Former Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) called out the indecision of House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) after he claimed he was considering an “informal impeachment…
…Gowdy advised Nadler to just make up his mind on the issue, instead of dragging out the suspense surrounding impeachment forever.
“Either file articles of impeachment and put them on the floor of the House for a vote, or shut up,” said Gowdy. “But nobody is falling for this informal versus formal impeachment. There ain’t but one kind. Go file your articles of impeachment, put them on the floor, you’ll win in the House, you’ll lose in front of the jury, but go ahead and do it. But there’s no such thing as informal impeachment.”
It remains unclear what Nadler is up to in regards to impeachment, though the vast majority of the House is opposed.
In court filings, Democrats want to force former White House counsel Don McGhan to testify that they are in an impeachment inquiry because that gives them greater access to witness testimony.
But they know publicly announcing an impeachment inquiry is terrible politics that will backfire in 2020.
So instead they settled on a middle ground strategy of trying to pretend they aren’t impeaching Trump to the broad electorate while only admitting they are in impeachment inquiry in front of a judge where their admission is out of the public spotlight.
