The big question hanging over Washington, D.C. concerns the Democrats’ time table for impeachment.
Americans finally got their answer.
And you won’t believe when Nancy Pelosi is going to impeach Donald Trump.
Trump supporters always believed it was a matter of when and not if Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats will impeach President Trump.
Nancy Pelosi pooh-pooh’d that talk out of fear that Democrats will pay a political price at the ballot box in 2020.
But House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler told MSNBC that Democrats could tee up articles of impeachment for a vote by late fall.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said Monday that his panel could recommend articles of impeachment by late fall, sketching a rough timeline for potential efforts to remove President Donald Trump just days after a majority of House Democrats signaled their willingness to support an impeachment inquiry.
“If we decide to report articles of impeachment, we could get to that late in the fall, in the latter part of the year,” Nadler said on MSNBC.
Nadler is petitioning a federal judge to get lawmakers access to grand jury evidence collected by former special counsel Robert Mueller, and his committee is preparing to sue former White House counsel Don McGahn to compel his testimony in the committee’s ongoing investigation into potential abuses of power by Trump.
“I think that we will probably get court decisions by the end of October, maybe shortly thereafter. We’ll have hearings in September and October with people we don’t — witnesses who are not dependent on the court proceedings,” Nadler said.
This news surprises exactly no one.
But articles of impeachment being introduced in the late fall means the Senate trial on impeachment could happen in the New Year.
And when the Senate fails to muster the votes to convict, Donald Trump will be running for re-election having just scored a massive victory.
