Nancy Pelosi to send articles of impeachment to the Senate next week

January 11, 2020

  After telling us for weeks how important it was for the House to move quickly on impeachment in order to protect the sanctity of the 2020 election Nancy Pelosi decided not to send the articles to the Senate for a trial under the guise of trying to ensure a fair trial for the President.

  This was an ill-advised move because the House has no right to dictate to the Senate the rules of the upper house’s proceedings and it backfired on the Speaker of the House when Democrats began to turn on her so yesterday she announced she was caving to Mitch McConnell and would send the articles to the Senate next week. Here is more:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday she will send the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate next week, ending a heated standoff with Republicans over the terms of the impeachment trial.

“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate,” Pelosi said in a letter to House Democrats.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — having already secured GOP votes for his preferred trial framework — could start the impeachment trial shortly after he receives the articles.

  I disagree with the article trying to portray this move as a “heated standoff” between the two chamber leaders, this was no standoff. The Speaker of the House refused to send the articles to the Senate for a vote, instead holding them hostage for demands she had to right to make.

  Laughingly enough Nancy Pelosi tried to blame Mitch McConnell for her decision to give in to him. Here is more:

“Yesterday, he showed his true colors and made his intentions to stonewall a fair trial even clearer by signing on to a resolution that would dismiss the charges,” Pelosi wrote in her letter.

  What other option did Mitch McConnell have? If Nancy Pelosi would not send the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a vote he had no other alternative than to dismiss the charges rather than give in to her unprecedented power grab. Mitch McConnell called her bluff and Nancy Pelosi knew she did not have the Constitutional grounds to stand on and so she was forced to cave in.

  From the very beginning of this process, with Nancy Pelosi not being able to control her caucus, right up until the end, with this misguided move to dictate the Senate proceedings, Nancy Pelosi has botched the impeachment proceedings and according to the polls it looks like the public tide has turned against impeaching the President because the people have been able to see what this is really all about.

    Let’s cross our fingers for the GOP not to fold. Keep in mind the voters, 99% of whom will not put down their cell phones long enough to know there is an impeachment debacle taking place any more than knowing the Dems are in the pocket of the Iranian monsters, any more than knowing the Islam takeover of voting districts is taking place-out in the open- so the election will not be influenced either way. Also keep in mind that with the money floating around DC anything is possible. But then I’m an optimist.🤭

        I’ll leave it Zip so that everybody can see this person has nothing but the talking points of the Democratic party to fall back on.

    Anytime Nanny State Nancy begins with “I …” or her ‘possessed minion followers’ jump in the mix (some trolls more obvious than others 🙂 we know 🤯 is on the way!
    Using the LAW to restrain and corner them – better yet “cage” um – is the only way to get anything worthwhile done.
    Although Mitch seems more of a RINO in the past, maybe he’s coming around … Hopefully!
    Just think if ‘godly’ people ruled how much better and smoother things would run … instead of the fake & warped cabal peace of ungodliness.

      Yeah, McConnell is the wild care in all of this. I don’t trust the guy but he seems to be doing the right thing on this.
