House Democrats to Discuss Impeachment Tuesday Over ‘Whistleblower’ Claim

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives will convene at 4 PM EST Tuesday, to discuss whether or not to move forward with impeaching President Donald Trump, Breitbart reports.

The new impeachment push is in response to the uncorroborated claims by a so-called “whistleblower” that President Trump tried to pressure the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings in Ukraine.

As Breitbart notes, Democrats have not pointed to any particular law that the president supposedly violated by making this suggestion. Even the Ukrainian government has come to Trump’s defense, with Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko insisting that there was “no pressure” on Zelensky from Trump during their call.

The meeting was called by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who has previously been opposed to impeachment efforts due to the political backlash that Democrats would likely face. With the Ukraine story, Pelosi has been facing increased pressure from far-left figures in the party, including Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.)

There have been three prior votes on motions to impeach President Trump in the House, all of which have been defeated by landslide margins. The most recent attempt, on July 16th, was rejected by 322 members of the House, with only 95 voting in favor.
