Pelosi Says House Not Holding Formal Impeachment Inquiry Vote at This Time


Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed to reporters tonight that “at this time” the House of Representatives will not be holding a formal impeachment inquiry vote.

In a press conference with Adam Schiff, Pelosi said, “There’s no requirement that we have a vote and at this time we will not be having a vote.”

Prior to Pelosi’s remarks, a number of reports came in that the Democrats will not be holding a floor vote for now:

The letter from the White House refusing to comply with the impeachment inquiry cited the lack of a formal vote, calling the Democrats’ inquiry “constitutionally invalid” and lacking “‘the necessary authorization for a valid impeachment proceeding.”
