House Republicans are continuing to move “full steam ahead” with their impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic allies are beginning to gather evidence and plan for the possibility of impeachment proceedings.
As debate swirls around whether Pelosi is intent on impeaching the president, House Republicans are continuing to express their commitment to an investigation into the president’s potential wrongdoing.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that his party is “not afraid of having this hearing” or “afraid of the facts,” as they believe they will exonerate Trump.
McCarthy is leading the Republican charge against the inquiry as Pelosi has yet to call a full House vote to launch an impeachment investigation, despite several members of her caucus pushing for it.
The GOP’s presence during the inquiry is important — they have the ability to withhold subpoenas and call witnesses to testify. Furthermore, it’s likely the Republican-led Senate would play a major role in the impeachment process after the House has concluded its investigation.
Despite the uncertain future of impeachment proceedings, House Republicans are steadfast in their mission to unearth all the facts in the inquiry, ensuring that their perspective is represented in the process.
