When lawmakers returned for legislative session after the extended work period, House Democrats had an opportunity to turn a new leaf and actually get things done for the American people. Unfortunately, instead of focusing on areas where bipartisan cooperation is possible, Democrats remain fixated on dead-end investigations and igniting baseless impeachment inquiries.

Interestingly, Democrats aren’t even in agreement on the status of impeachment. While Judiciary Committee Chairman Nadler has insisted that such proceedings are underway, Speaker Nancy Pelosi contends that Democrats are not pursuing impeachment. Despite divisions in the Democratic Caucus that includes a radical wing that wants to impeach and a more moderate wing that wishes to avoid the issue, they can’t have it both ways.

This raises the question: Which one is it? Again, it depends on who you ask.

This claim has been disputed by various members of the Democratic House leadership team.
