The political clock is ticking towards the 2020 election as House Democrats consider whether to launch any impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. That could limit how long House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can say yes or no on that question before the presidential campaign consumes the nation’s attention.

But calls for impeaching Trump have grown louder in the House. Some Democrats say that if the House moves ahead, proceedings would have to be launched this year or it will be too late.
