Before, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared a floor vote Thursday to authorize the impeachment question and put down rules and procedures of holding public hearings, in comparison to these closed-door depositions up to now, such as by Lindman.
The White House has refused to cooperate with the question saying it hasn’t yet been approved by the House as had been done at the past two impeachments, ” said Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. It’s not a constitutional necessity, but Republicans have used it to question the validity of this query.
