Former MP David Jolly said Spokesman Pelosi should play the Trump tapes on the floor of the house and hold an impeachment vote this week.
Convening of the new judicial committee of the house, playing the tape, voting on impeachment up or down.
This week @SpeakerPelosi.

The House Judiciary Committee does not need a hearing. They all have evidence to indict Trump with an apparently criminal act in meddling in a state election.
The point to indict Trump with roughly two weeks in office would be to send the message to all anti-democracy Republicans that these behaviors will not be tolerated and that their seditious acts against the people of the United States will not be tolerated.
Trump and his supporters seem to believe that they have absolute power and authority to do anything. If Biden and the coalition want to restore the rule of law, it is not enough to indignant over Trump’s election fraud efforts.
Donald Trump could be prosecuted for what he does, but the House could send an immediate and powerful message by indicting Trump before leaving office for his attempt to destroy democracy.
