Impeachment on hold as Pelosi is cautious - reports

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her associates decided against holding a formal impeachment vote following discussions in the Democratic Caucus, according to sources who leaked the information to the media in the United States. The move in the procedure to take down President Donald Trump could be made at a later point, several unnamed members of Congress and members of their teams said.

The administration and loyal Republicans have claimed the inquiry is illegitimate if it is not passed by lawmakers in the lower chamber, a point raised also by Vice President Mike Pence in a letter that was just sent to committees responsible for the process.

Insiders said caution prevailed among opposition leaders as a substantial number of Democratic representatives risk backlash in districts leaning to the Grand Old Party. A successful vote in the procedure would enable the other side to write subpoenas and get witnesses to hearings.
