Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are in total disarray.
They picked one big fight with Donald Trump over impeachment that will define the 2020 Presidential election.
And now Nancy Pelosi admitted this huge defeat that pushed Democrats over the edge.
After a nearly one month long delay, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally scheduled a vote to name House managers and transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
These steps will allow the Senate trial to begin on January 21.
Pelosi claimed this represented a great victory for the Democrats.
“The President and the Senators will be held accountable,” Pelosi’s statement read. “The American people deserve the truth, and the Constitution demands a trial.”
However, in reality it represented Pelosi waving the white flag of surrender.
Pelosi’s stated goal in holding back the articles of impeachment was to force the Republicans to commit to allowing the Democrats to call witnesses and to provide the rules governing the Senate trial.
Republicans laughed off both demands and Pelosi was forced to cave in without achieving any of her stated objectives.
Some Republicans such as RINO traitors Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski gave Democrats and their fake news media allies hope that the GOP would permit the Democrats to conduct a fishing expedition by calling new witnesses.
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear he believed that no new witnesses were necessary and the Senate should try the case the House sent over.
“If the existing case is strong, there’s no need for the judge and the jury to reopen the investigation. If the existing case is weak, House Democrats should not have impeached in the first place. I think I’m beginning to understand why the speaker wanted to change the subject to tax policy. But unfortunately, no matter how irresponsibly this has been handled across the Capitol, impeachment is not a political game, and the United States Senate will not treat it like one.
“The House majority, fueled by political animus, may have started this with frivolity, but it will fall to the Senate … to end it with seriousness and sobriety. It will fall to us to do what the founders intended: to take the long view, move beyond partisan passions, and do what the long-term good of our institution and our nation demands.”
McConnell also shut down Pelosi’s other notion that Donald Trump would be “impeached for life” regardless of the outcome of a Senate trial.
Pelosi floated that talking point in a Sunday show interview because the Speaker knows a bi-partisan majority in the Senate will exonerate President Trump on these sham articles of impeachment.
Majority Leader McConnell made it clear the Senate – and not the House of Representatives – would deliver the final say on this matter.
“It will fall to the Senate to end it with seriousness and sobriety,” McConnell declared.
