Some House Republicans are convinced Trump will be impeached so they're holding off moving any of his agenda. They're waiting for their pal, President Pence-Rush Limbaugh, June16, 2017

6/16/17, "Some Washington Republicans Really Are Waiting for President Pence," Rush Limbaugh

"By the way, there’s a school of thought running around in Washington on Capitol Hill...when you start asking Republicans, “Why are you not trying to move the Trump agenda? Why are you sitting on your hands? Why do you let Democrats run the show?” One of the answers you get is, “We’re waiting for Pence.” 
I ran this theory by a sitting member of the Republican House of Representatives, and he thought, “Rush, I haven’t heard that. I haven’t heard a word of that.” And he started looking into it, and he wrote me back. He said, “I must ask your forgiveness.” There are apparently — I don’t know what the number is, but there are enough Republicans, some in the House, who are convinced that Trump’s gonna be impeached. They are convinced that Trump is toast. And they want to hold off on moving the Trump agenda until he’s gone so it then becomes President Pence.

I mean, Pence is one of them. Pence is a governor. Pence is a member of the House....Pence is a guy they understand and know. They’re not embarrassed. They’re not ashamed or any of that. And I think there’s some validity. Take Pence out of it. I think there’s a sizable group of Republicans that think Trump isn’t going to make it. And, as such, they are sitting on their hands and not advancing Trump’s agenda because they think that once Trump goes, his agenda is gonna be the next thing and that anybody who voted for it is gonna get the same treatment Trump got. So even though they’re running the show, you just don’t see much evidence."
