Americans were against it. The evidence didn’t support it. Yet after months of accusations, House Democrats voted for a partisan impeachment of Donald Trump. But Pelosi refuses to send the articles to the Senate for a trial. Mitch McConnell condemned her, as one Constitutional lawyer brings up a good point.
You really have to hand it to the Democrats. They can’t get anything done! They’ve been promising their radical, far-left, braindead base that they’d impeach Donald Trump for years. They even had to invent a crime just to do it.
Democrats cast this entire country into chaos. All in the name of clawing back power and securing their win for the 2020 election.
But now, after they’ve irrevocably hurt this country and their party, these cowards refuse to finish the job and send their articles of impeachment to the Senate. Without that, the Senate cannot hold a trial and vote to condemn or acquit the president.
Obviously, Pelosi is doing this to prevent the Senate from acquiting Trump. But she’s overstepping her bounds and violating the separation of powers. This woman is insane and should be in a mental institution.
She’s doing this to force the Senate to obey her demands. But Mitch McConnell made it clear that the Senate will not be held hostage by this deranged woman.
“Some House Democrats imply they are withholding the [impeachment] articles for some kind of leverage,” McConnell said. “I admit, I’m not sure what leverage there is in refraining from sending us something we do not want. Alas, if they can figure that out, they can explain.”
He continued: “Following weeks of pronouncements about the urgency of the situation, urgent situation, the prosecutors appear to have developed cold feet. Democrat prosecution seems to gotten cold feet, and to be unsure about whether they want to proceed to the trial, like I said, a very unusual spectacle. And in my view, certainly not one that reflects well on the House. [Source: Fox News]
McConnell is not bothered by the stupid game Pelosi is playing. Why? Because until she sends the articles to the Senate, Trump isn’t even impeached! The Democrats can’t say they got anything done until they finish their part of the job by handing the case over to the Senate. In fact, one Constitutional lawyer said Trump can claim they haven’t impeached him because of this delay.
[Noah] Feldman cautioned that impeachment “means the House sending its approved articles of impeachment to the Senate, with House managers standing up in the Senate and saying the president is impeached.”
Therefore, “if the House does not communicate its impeachment to the Senate, it hasn’t actually impeached the president,” Feldman said. “If the articles are not transmitted, Trump could legitimately say that he wasn’t truly impeached at all.” [Source: Fox News]
Unless Democrats bother to send House managers to Senate for the trial, none of this matters.
Isn’t that hilarious? Democrats can’t even finish their own corrupt, dishonest, un-American schemes!
They are so inept, so blinded by their hatred of Trump, that they made a rushed, sloppy job of impeachment. This was all a show, after all. Pelosi and her Democrats were just playing for the cameras, hoping the fake news would broadcast their message far and wide.
It didn’t really matter if they voted to impeach, or if the Senate holds a trial. All that mattered to them was that CNN, the New York Times, and other rags spread the lie that Trump is a criminal.
This was about tarnishing his reputation going into 2020, that is all. Democrats knew the Senate would never convict and remove Trump from office. Impeachment was just a pipe dream only the most insane Democrats thought would come true.
Pelosi jumped on board because she is a coward that cannot lead. She wanted to push this scheme so that their 2020 candidate would have an unfair advantage in the election.
Much the same way Hillary Clinton created a bogus dossier to frame Trump as a Russian spy.
But, in the same way, the Democrats are going to fail again.
