It can’t be true that they’re not whipping the vote, can it? Surely there are enough Dem freshmen from swing districts worried about the politics of all this to tank impeachment if they’re given the green light to vote how they please. It’s the second-biggest floor vote of Pelosi’s career, behind only ObamaCare. She’s going to need to twist some arms.
Either this is out-and-out BS fed to the media to convince them that the caucus is rarin’ to impeach, with no pressure applied from the top, or she’s already twisted arms privately and has 218+ commitments from her caucus that they’re voting yes.
