House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared rattled after being compelled by reporters to give a direct answer about impeachment inquiry.
The article implies the following
“I’m not answering any more questions about a possible inquiry, investigation, and the rest,” Pelosi tersely told reporters who asked her about the matter at her weekly press conference.
Pelosi’s frustration led her to walk away from the podium, cutting her press conference short after calling for the media to focus on the Senate GOP’s refusal to take up a Democratic proposal to expand background checks for gun purchases.
“Why is it that you are hung up with a word over here when lives are at stake over there?” the California Democrat said, walking out of the room.
Pelosi has resisted a formal House vote that would authorize the House Judiciary Committee to launch an official impeachment inquiry.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler has nonetheless declared the panel is conducting an official investigation. The committee voted Thursday to establish formal rules for pursuing an impeachment inquiry, and Nadler declared a House vote is not needed to authorize one.
