SCALISE: “Madam Speaker, my parliamentary inquiry is this. Has the House — Madam Speaker, my parliamentary inquiry is this. Has the House been authorized to conduct an impeachment inquiry into President Trump?”
SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE: “The gentleman is not stating a proper parliamentary inquiry.”
SCALISE: “Madam Speaker, we ought to know the answer to that question. Madam Speaker, either the House has started a parliamentary impeachment inquiry or not.”
SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE: “Pursuant to Clause 8 of Rule 20, the unfinished business is the vote on the motion of the gentleman from California, Mr. Takano.”
