As House Democrats find themselves back in the difficult policy of impeachment, a new idea is put into circulation: the creation of a select panel of members to perform these duties.
A high-ranking Democrat adjunct The Daily Beast's idea with a select panel was "addressed by some members" to consolidate the impeachment process around Donald Trump.
"No decisions were made," said the adjutant. "We understand that some members can publicly endorse this. The caucus will make those decisions.
Although the talk of impeachment was growing louder after Trump pressured the President of Ukraine to investigate the business dealings involving former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, according to a House Democratic adviser the investigation since at least July seriously on Capitol Hill.
A high-ranking Democrat defendant said the idea of an elected panel was "meritorious" in that it represented an aggressive step forward for the party, potentially giving some distance to the Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee and other remaining members uncomfortable with the Enforcement of the matter. According to the House Rules, the spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi would have the power to appoint not only the chair of a select committee, but also its members.
But the move also carries some risks. Among them is unclear who might be the chairman of a special committee ̵
Selected impeachment committees have been used differently throughout history. they can investigate impeachment and then draft articles, or they can only do one of these things. However, the establishment of a selection committee is not a necessary component of the impeachment procedure.
The idea seems to remain in the early stages of discussion. A high-ranking democratic legislator said Monday morning he had not heard of the idea. Later in the evening, when rumors about news surfaced, the legislature responded, "Not surprised. Should be an interesting week.
The leadership of the House Democrats will meet on Tuesday. Then she will almost certainly discuss how Trump should put Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky under pressure. The President has not apologized for providing military assistance to the country to fight corruption. His government also refused to file a complaint. Several Democrats said on Monday that if the White House blocked the statement made by the Director of National Intelligence on Thursday, it would force them to fully accept the prosecution of impeachment. Others, including the close associate of Pelosi, Debbie Dingell (D-MI), announced their support for impeachment.
It is reported that Pelosi himself is exploring legislators regarding impeachment, and Trump warns that if he is not informed about whistleblowing, it could have serious political consequences.
"If the government continues to prevent this whistleblower from telling Congress a grave possible violation of the president's constitutional obligations, they will enter a new chapter of lawlessness that will usher in a whole new phase of inquiry." she said in a statement.
