If Pelosi wants impeachment, then the House should vote

Sept. 27, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging House Democrats to go on the record on an impeachment inquiry:

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s choice to independently launch impeachment ‘proceedings’ violates one of the primary functions that the House majority is supposed to perform — to vote on matters of major import. It is obvious why Democrats in the House are reluctant to have a vote on their crumbling inquiry itself, as they know it is a kamikaze mission for the political futures of vulnerable members. But it is inexcusable for them to hide behind Speaker Pelosi when it comes to a matter as weighty as impeachment. Those Democrats who are too afraid to vote on an opening impeachment inquiry should be prime nominees for a new book titled ‘Profiles in Cowardice.’ If Democrats are not willing to vote, then they should just shut up.”
