House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., on Tuesday would not commit to participating in Thursday's House impeachment vote against President Donald Trump and said he had not yet read the resolution.
"We're going to have to consider, whether or not it's ready to go on Thursday," Hoyer, 80, who was first elected in 1981, told VICE News senior political reporter Cameron Joseph. "I hope that's the case."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday that she would bring a formal impeachment rule to a vote on Thursday, telling her caucus in a statement that "nobody is above the law."
Republicans in both chambers have slammed the current probe — President Trump has steadily attacked it as a "witch hunt" — and Senate Republicans last week endorsed a resolution by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that called for "due process" and other protections for the president in any formal proceeding.
