Trump to send Pelosi letter demanding House vote on impeachment; Schiff’s ties to Ukraine exposed

The White House will send House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., a letter on Friday “daring” her to hold a vote on Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Fox News has confirmed. The letter will say the White House won’t comply with the Democrats’ investigation because Pelosi hasn’t codified the probe with a formal vote on the House floor. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., sent a similar letter to Pelosi on Thursday, taking issue with reports that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was limiting Republicans’ ability to ask questions during Thursday’s testimony by former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who resigned last week. Pelosi shot back at McCarthy, saying that “existing rules of the House provide House committees with full authority to conduct investigations for all matters under their jurisdiction.” Speaking to ABC’s “Good Morning America” Thursday, Pelosi defended Schiff, who was criticized for reading a “parody” of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Congress, stating “He did not make it up.”
