The vote is in. The corridors of power in Washington have taken notice of the shocking results, and the impact will be felt nationwide — especially over the course of the 2020 election.
According to reports, House Democrats have tallied votes within their caucus and determined that they’ve reached the threshold to impeach President Trump. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has doomed her party at the ballot box.
This news comes as “at least 18 from the 31 Democratic-held districts that Mr. Trump won in the 2016 presidential race had announced they would support the abuse-of-power and obstruction of Congress charges.”
There are also at least two House Democrats opposed, which is worth noting: If they don’t flip to Pelosi’s side, the only thing “bipartisan” about this witch-hunt will be the opposition to it. That’s ironic.
