House GOP member Tom McClintock is strongly urging House Democrats to move forward with their impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

It appears McClintock is growing frustrated with the Dems fixation with impeachment but also their inability to move the ball forward.

According to Fox News:

A House Republican issued a "double dog dare" to Democrats on the Judiciary Committee Thursday, challenging them to call a vote on the impeachment of President Trump.

Rep. Tom McClintock, of California, took issue with House Democrats, who took a big step in their impeachment push as they set the ground rules for a formal committee inquiry.

“If the majority wants to exercise the House’s power of impeachment, all you got to do is ask the House to do so," McClintock said. "All you have to do is ask the House that it direct and authorize this committee to conduct an impeachment inquiry. That’s all you have to do."

“Resolve that the House authorizes the Judiciary Committee to conduct an inquiry into the impeachment of the president. It’s that simple. I dare you to do it. In fact, I double dog dare you to do it. Have the House vote on those 18 words and then go at it. Why won't you do that?"

  Pelosi has expressed her skepticism of impeachment. However, Pelosi has expressed support for increased investigations and for Nadler's seemingly unending quest.
