Seven Senate Democrats want Nancy Pelosi to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate

January 8, 2020

  House Democrats were in a hurry to impeach Donald Trump because of the threat they claimed he posed to the 2020 election and our democracy, and yet since passing the articles of impeachment the Speaker of the House has declined to transmit the articles to the Senate for a trial. So much for urgency…

  Now some Senate Democrats are getting fed up with the delay and are asking calling for Nancy Pelosi to end her stonewalling and to let the Senate do its job and hold a trial. The count is now up to seven disgruntled Senate Democrats, here is more:

A growing number of Senate Democrats are breaking with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her handling of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Seven Democrats — Sens. Dianne Feinstein, Doug Jones, Chris Murphy, Joe Manchin, Richard Blumenthal, Jon Tester, and Chris Coons — told various news outlets Wednesday that they are ready for Pelosi to transmit the articles so that the Senate can move forward with Trump’s trial.

“If we’re going to do it, she should send them over. I don’t see what good delay does,” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Bloomberg.

“I think the time has past. She should send the articles over,” Murphy told The Washington Post.

“We were ready on the day the articles were voted, to conduct the trial,” Blumenthal told Politico.

“At some point it’s appropriate to send them and in effect pass the baton to senators who are going to continue to insist on witnesses and documents.”

  Considering the urgency of the matter–according to the Democrats–this hardly seems like the time for Nancy Pelosi to be playing games, especially when Article I, Section 5, Paragraph 2 of the Constitution specifically gives each House the right to determine the rules for its proceedings.

 Nancy Pelosi has no right to hold the Senate hostage to her whims and now some Democrats are beginning to turn against her, it seems to me as if the Democrats have totally mishandled this whole affair and in the end it could come back to haunt them.

  The Democrats were not lying when they claimed this was about the 2020 election, but they lied about the reason: this was not about protecting the 2020 election from foreign interference but rather in using this as a political football during the 2020 election cycle.

    My guess she has been hoping against hope that the court ruling would come down on several people that would have to testify but in fact are not specific to this case but she wanted to press the Senate for a full court trial and use this as an excuse.. Of course Trump would have appealed so it would have gone no where….
    Now that McConnell has corralled the iffy GOPers into using the Clinton outline she offers nothing…..go figure.

      They show a little bit of courage and then Pelosi puts them back in their place.

        She really is the “Wicked Witch” of the West – should’ve learned from what happened to her sister “W W of the East” – the HOUSE fell on her. I wonder if that’s an omen to things to come.
        She exerts some ‘magical control’ over them – probably why Trump calls it a “Witch hunt”, he really means the Witches are hunting!
        If the movie’s right, she’s melts when water’s dumped on her … like the “possessed swine” that ran off the cliff into the water to rid the invading devils, maybe they knew 🤔
        btw the ‘rad left’ use words like ‘Treason’ ‘Witches’ ‘Unstable’ referring to those they don’t like, it’s called “Projection” but they ‘reject’ that 🙂
