Pelosi Blinks, Says Will Send Impeachment Theater To Senate Next Week

Republicans not only do not seem concerned about dealing with Impeachment Theater, they seem to be looking forward to it, which could be why Queen Nancy was holding on to the impeachment referral

Pelosi set to send impeachment articles to the Senate next week

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that she expects to send the articles of impeachment against President Trump over to the Senate next week, breaking the standoff that had delayed the trial over his dealings with Ukraine.

The move, which came amid increasing pressure on the Speaker to drop her hold on the articles, means Democrats will move forward in appointing impeachment managers who will make their case that Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors in Phase Two of the trial, which will weigh whether the president should be removed from office.

“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler [D-N.Y.] to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to Democrats.

“I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” she added.

Be prepared. Uh huh. Is anyone thinking that she and Nadler might find an excuse to not transmit them over?

The announcement comes more than three weeks after the House passed two articles of impeachment, largely along party lines, alleging that Trump abused his power while pressuring the Ukrainian government to investigate his political opponents and obstructed Congress in Democrats’ inquiry.

Remember, it was uber-important, democracy saving, that the House vote to impeach Trump. Then, crickets afterwards, as they were trying to demand the how’s of any Senate trial. Just like Republicans had zero power in the House, Democrats have zero power in the Senate

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) held firm in his stance that any decisions on witnesses should come after the Senate trial begins, in what he described as the same standard for former President Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999.

McConnell deflated much of Pelosi’s leverage earlier this week when he announced that he had enough votes within his GOP conference to vote to begin the trial without acceding to Democrats’ demands to commit to witness testimony first.

Perhaps we’ll get to hear from the so-called whistleblower. People, including the President, have the Constitutional Right to face their accusers.

    Ever notice Nan’s collapsed right nostril?
    Botox, alcohol, coke, and ill-fitting dentures will do that to a gal.

      Actually I think that’s a rhinoplasty gone wrong. But the guy who did her implants made them to last forever. Sadly, they’re like hanging a Rembrandt in an outhouse.
