Lindsey Graham Takes Victory Lap After Forcing Pelosi’s Hand on Impeachment Vote


For weeks on end, Nancy Pelosi has been reticent to christen her “formal impeachment inquiry” with a vote, but all that will change on Thursday.

The House Speaker, along with her fellow Democrats, have insisted that their “inquiry” be held as quietly and confidentially as possible.  Furthermore, it has been the Democratic leadership of these House committees who hold authority over what information can be disseminated from behind closed doors, further skewing the national narrative on impeachment against President Trump.

The White House, for their part, have declined to cooperate with the “inquiry” until such a time as Pelosi and the House take the issue up for a vote.  The pressure coming from the right side of the aisle has finally broken Pelosi’s will to stonewall the GOP, with a vote now scheduled for Thursday.

Sen. Graham said in a statement Monday that a vote on the rules regarding the impeachment inquiry “is a bit like un-ringing a bill as House Democrats have selectively leaked information in order to damage President Trump for weeks.”

The South Carolina senator credited his and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) resolution, which reportedly has the support of 50 Republican senators, except for Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

“There is no doubt in my mind that the overwhelming response House Democrats heard from the American people and Senate Republicans in support of my resolution forced their hand,” Graham contended. “Today’s announcement is an acknowledgment of the success of our efforts last week.”

Graham said:

The American people have been outraged by the unfair nature, and lack of due process House Democrats have given to President Trump.  I take pride in the fact that our vigorous response to their underhanded tactics ended up making the House Democrat position untenable. Today, they were forced to change course.

Graham’s victory lap comes as the impeachment inquiry itself is evolving, with a number of White House officials testing the limits of Congress’ authority by defying requests and subpoenas for testimony and documents.

House Democrats have publicly stated that such reluctance will be met with charges of “obstruction”, but none so far have emerged from the depths of the secretive proceedings.
