National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Tom Emmer (R-MN) said Saturday that the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry “is going to cost them their” House “majority” in the 2020 congressional elections.
As many swing district House Democrats go back to their districts and explain to their constituents their support for the impeachment inquiry, Emmer said  that the inquiry will result in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) losing her House majority.
