Weeks ago, House Democrats passed their wildly partisan impeachment of Donald Trump. To the shock of the entire country, pathetic Nancy Pelosi refuses to send the articles over to the Senate. She is trying to extort the Senate to have a trial her way. Sen. Lindsey Graham has had enough with her games. He’s about to take matters into his own hands.
Most Americans have seen through the left’s impeachment. It was just a stunt to harm the reputation of a man sure to win re-election. The articles Pelosi put forward were non-crimes. Few Americans are convinced the president committed impeachable offenses.
Pelosi proves her impeachment was a stunt by refusing to send the articles to the Senate. She knows a Senate trial would give the president a fair chance and expose the ridiculous lengths the left’s gone to harm him. By refusing to send the articles, Pelosi is not only undermining the law, but proving how broken and dead her party is.
Lindsey Graham has had enough of Pelosi’s charade. He made it very clear that if she does not send over the articles by the end of this week, the Senate will take matters into their own hands.
Graham accused Pelosi of playing political games and trying to exert control over the Senate trial by keeping it from starting…
“What I would do, if she continues to refuse to send the articles as required by the Constitution, I would work with Senator McConnell to change the rules of the Senate so we could start the trial without her, if necessary,” Graham proposed…
“They impeached the president, but the speaker of the House is holding the articles back, trying to extort from the majority leader of the Senate a trial to her liking. They’re trying to hold these articles over the head of the president.” [Source: Fox News]
Graham’s proposal involves the Senate getting together and amending its own rules. They will cut the Speaker out of the process by holding a trial, regardless of what stunt she’s pulling. Graham proposes that House managers and the president can make their arguments. Then the Senate would decide if they want witnesses. He promised it would only take a few weeks.
His goal is to be done with impeachment by the end of January. If Pelosi continues to deny our Constitutional rules, the Senate will just remove her from the equation. One woman cannot interfere with how this country is run.
Just because Pelosi knows she’s lost doesn’t give her the right to create this kind of gridlock. But this is what we’ve seen from her for a long time. Last year, she shut down the government and delayed the State of the Union, because she refused to negotiate with Trump.
She has a long history of abusing her power. It seems like she has more in common with a spoiled schoolchild, who stomps her feet and throws a temper tantrum, than a competent adult. Not once have we seen Pelosi try to work with the president, even as he’s offered olive branches again and again.
Today, she knows her impeachment was a bust. She pushed it, bowing to the far-left in her party (to save her own job). It quickly collapsed, after Trump released the phone call transcripts, destroying the left’s case.
Then, she should have dropped this. But Pelosi continued to push, egged on by some delusion that the American people were on her side. Only after her wildly partisan impeachment vote, Pelosi realized she lost. Sending the articles to the Senate would give someone else the power over this process. This power-hungry woman couldn’t allow that.
So, she’s resorted to a pathetic, last-ditch effort to save her reputation, one she’s done again and again: stall. She really seems to think that Trump and the Senate will bow to her demands. Sorry, Nance, but that’s not going to happen.
The Senate will move on without you and end this nonsense. Then, come November 2020, the country will move on without you, when we vote you out for good.
