Fetch some popcorn because it appears that the House of Representatives WILL move on impeachment next week.

This is very bizarre. I know that Nancy Pelosi has been very much against it because she can read the polls as well as we can, and she knows it will hurt the Democrats. BUT, also on her left, idiots like AOC and others have been gnawing at her heels and demanding it.
The House Judiciary Committee is prepared to vote next week on a resolution laying out the procedures for its investigation now that it is actively considering moving to impeach President Donald Trump, a major step toward formalizing its sweeping probe, according to multiple sources familiar with the effort.
The vote, which is expected to occur on Wednesday, will lay out the ground rules for conducting hearings now that the committee has publicly announced it is considering recommending articles of impeachment against Trump. It is expected to follow the precedent set in 1974 over the committee’s procedures during then-President Richard Nixon’s impeachment proceedings.
Sources told CNN on Friday that the resolution is expected to spell out that Chairman Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, has the authority to call hearings at either the full committee or subcommittee level in connection with its impeachment deliberations.

Very interesting. On the other hand, this has the possibility of energizing and galvanizing Democrats, especially the far left ones. And if they are going to nominate creepy old uncle Joe Biden, they’re gonna need energized liberals since so many on the left will be angry about their pick.
