The House Dems’ ongoing effort to make their base believe they’re moving closer to impeaching President Trump without actually doing so continues with a planned vote this week, but not on actual impeachment:
The House will vote this week on a resolution to formalize the next steps of the impeachment inquiry into Trumphttps://t.co/Unc4tkaFrG

GOP Rep. Mark Meadows found it rich in irony:
House Democrats now suddenly saying they'll vote on an impeachment resolution to “ensure transparency” is rich—considering they've spent weeks conducting interviews in secret, leaking their own talking points while locking down any and all information that benefits the President

We’re just guessing that after the House vote on whatever jumbled wording is in the resolution, they will return to doing exactly what they’ve been doing.
"resolution affirming impeachment investigation" LOL word salad https://t.co/zwTYDVJ1EH

This is NOT a vote on Articles of Impeachment. https://t.co/0iT5BhXoPA

Oh, Dems will get there at some point… maybe. Or maybe not.
That’s not an impeachment vote though…..

So, in a matter of minutes after the first announcement, the Democrats cave on holding a real "impeachment vote", and instead use this word salad to try to defend their Basement-Dwelling Kangaroo Court Power Fantasy. https://t.co/RYfFA92KiV pic.twitter.com/yE9SelFSRa

Maybe a resolution to re-authorize the original impeachment resolution?
