Deeply troubling that #Pelosi and #Nadler are trying to obfuscate and confuse Democratic voters.

But let's be clear, as CNN reports today: "Pelosi and Nadler have so far resisted the pressure from within their party to open an inquiry."

After months of intense activist pressure @SpeakerPelosi and @RepJerryNadler realized they had to throw Dems a bone, so they concocted a convoluted narrative to make it appear the #impeachment process has begun. It hasn't.


Let's be honest: Dem leaders want to punt to 2020 voters while Trump abuses power with total abandon.

#Nadler's words: “If an impeachment inquiry is if you’re considering only impeachment, that’s not what we’re doing.”


Trump should be impeached NOW.

We don't need an iota more evidence.

Republicans would have impeached Obama or Clinton in the first week for the same offenses, without hesitation.

Not impeaching Trump is tolerating his abuses.

@SpeakerPelosi @RepJerryNadler HERE'S HOW YOU DO #IMPEACHMENT:

Simple majority in the Judiciary Committee.

Goes to the full House for a vote.

Every Dem votes yes.

Trump is impeached.

Senate GOP refuses to convict, and will be on the record endorsing Trump's racism and abuse of power.

The rest is spin.
@SpeakerPelosi @RepJerryNadler ONE MORE:

Reuters: "Committee aides pushed back on assertions that Congress needs a formal impeachment inquiry to justify accessing grand jury evidence."

The Judiciary Committee doesn't want to call it an #ImpeachmentInquiry and neither does Nadler.

That says it all.
