Speaker Nancy Pelosi had announced a news conference at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, with many wondering if she was going to announce a House vote to proceed with an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. That vote will have to wait a little longer, it seems.

CONFIRMED: Pelosi informs caucus there will NOT be a formal floor vote to launch the impeachment inquiry
— Scott Wong (@scottwongDC) October 15, 2019
Multiple Dem sources say it’s “very unlikely” that Pelosi will announce an impeachment inquiry vote tonight. Several cmte chairs aren’t in agreement with holding that vote, per sources.

Fox is told Pelosi plans no vote right now to formally launch impeachment probe at this time. She has been discussing this with House Democrats

It’s almost like it’s a hoax. ?

Because its literally a hoax

It will take the democrats at least a decade to recover this slow motion trainwreck

Thus allowing Schiff's secretive, in the basement, inquisition to continue, prohibiting Republican members from participating on an equal footing. @GOPLeader should strongly oppose this move and demand she brings it to the floor for a vote. Enough is enough.

But what about that “bombshell” testimony Chad?

Thought there was a "BOMBSHELL" by Dep Sec State Kent which you reported on in an earlier tweet. Looks like the Pelosi/Ds discussion was a non discussion. Keep the status quo bc the "Bombshell" didn't favor their narrative.

What's so funny (actually sad) is that the average Democrat thinks all of this is formal & for real.

Support Pelosi or not, easy to see why she’s pushing against Impeachment.

She doesn't want to put Red State Trump district Democrats on the record of impeachment

They want re-elected.

First Schiff walks back about not being clear on his words and Nancy being all nervous… Must be something big in the IG report

Methinks they mistimed their effort, now they just look stupid with all the investigations coming out.

She ain't got the votes and they have nothing real
— Bad Boy (@diddykilled2pac) October 15, 2019
Doesn't have the votes.
What a loser.
— Tony Semeraro (@Redeemed54) October 15, 2019
Basically they have no factual evidence against Trump. What a waste of time.

Just another democratic hoax.
— Kathleen Pelletier (@kjkpelletier) October 15, 2019
Lol….she counted votes and called it off. No freaking vote…..it would be devastating for the dems.

If Democrats had the impeachment vote they would hold the impeachment vote.

Her new plan is to drag this into the 2020 election.
— Pigpaw1 (@Pigpaw12) October 15, 2019
We suspect it was always her plan to skip impeachment and focus solely on the 2020 elections, but her caucus just wouldn’t have it anymore.
Super-serious Nancy Pelosi somehow found the time to pose for Annie Leibovitz and an impeachment photoshoot https://t.co/xGYQxIHhuf
