Pelosi Refuses to Send Impeachment Articles to Senate This Year

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will hold up the articles in the House and use them as leverage to get the kind of Senate trial her party wants.

This is not going to work out for the Democrats. They are going to get destroyed for messing with the process, which has already been a successful line of attack for President Trump and Republicans.

The right to a speedy trial, Democrats’ fear that what they’ve done is illegitimate – the lines of attack are evident. I do not think independents want this to continue, let alone conservatives. Democrats’ handling of impeachment has been a disaster, and they are about to make it worse.

From the Washington Examiner:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she plans to send the House-passed impeachment articles to the Senate as soon as lawmakers strike a deal on how to conduct a trial.

“The next thing for us will be when we see the process that is set forth in the Senate,” she said. “Then we’ll know the number of monitors that we may have to go forward.”

Pelosi must appoint Democratic lawmakers to serve as managers to prosecute the case in the Senate. The House has to pass a bill authorizing Pelosi to appoint the managers.

“When we see what they have, we’ll know who, and how many, we will send over,” Pelosi, a California Democrat, said.

The House is set to adjourn for the week, which means the House is unlikely to vote until January at the earliest on a resolution authorizing Pelosi to appoint the impeachment managers who will deliver the articles to the Senate.

Senate leaders are expected to meet “soon” to discuss the terms of a Senate trial, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, said Thursday.

  1. I heard this last night on Laura Ingraham and follow up this morning. How disgusting – President Trump is a threat to our national security but it’s okay to delay his right to defend himself. Just saw an article and read very little of it but saw where one of the Democratic congressman explained to his 3 and 1 year olds while he voted to impeach. YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME – like they care or even come close to understanding what the heck he was talking about. There simply is no shame from politicians. Fortunately my young grandsons, 11, 8 and 6 get to enjoy being kids. The 11 year old and sometimes the 8 year old get more information because they read and see the news when it is one at their house, but my daughter and her husband have never expected them to be bogged down by adult matters. How sad.

  2. She will send it over to the Senate. When the President is acquitted, found not guilty or the whole thing is dismissed, the Dems will have their campaign slogan – Make the US Senate a Dem Majority.
    All we can do out here in fly-over country is keep the Senate a Repub majority and work like crazy to return Congress to a sane and workable Repub majority.
    PresTrump will be reelected. We have to make sure he stays that way.

        1. Thanks. I see no way the Dems can get the votes. BTW Beto announced he will not make a run against Sen John Cornyn. He plans to spend his time getting a 2020 Dem elected.

  3. I thought it was an imminent threat to leave Trump in office? Sorry ppl, we had to go on vacation. To me, that shows UT was a sham the whole time.
