Democrats are watching as Impeachment is spiraling out of control.
And it is all because of Nancy Pelosi’s disastrous gamble.
And now Nancy Pelosi suffered an impeachment humiliation that you will find unbelievable.
Nancy Pelosi has now withheld the articles of impeachment for three weeks in an attempt to bully Senate Republicans into allowing Chuck Schumer to call the shots in an impeachment trial.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell laughed at Pelosi holding cards and acting like she had all the leverage.
McConnell only needs 51 Republican Senators to set the ground rules for an impeachment trial and doesn’t need the Democrats for anything.
The death knell for Pelosi’s pitiful “power play” was McConnell announcing he had the votes to structure Trump’s impeachment trial like the 1999 Bill Clinton proceeding where there would be opening arguments and questions from Senators and then a vote on possible witness testimony.
“A majority of the Senate has decided that the first phase of an impeachment trial should track closely with the unanimous bipartisan precedent that all 100 senators supported for the first phase of the Clinton trial in 1999,” McConnell announced on social media.
McConnell’s announcement broke the dam on Senate Democrats’ patience with Pelosi’s political games.
Four Democrat Senators broke ranks and publically ripped Pelosi.
Traitorous West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin claimed it was time to “move on.”
“The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes,” California Democrat Dianne Feinstein told the press. “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”
“We need to get folks to testify and we need more information … but nonetheless, I’m ready,” Montana Democrat Jon Tester added. “I don’t know what leverage we have. It looks like the cake is already baked.”
“I respect the fact that she is concerned about the fact about whether or not there will be a fair trial. But I do think it is time to get on with it,” Delaware Democrat Chris Coons stated.
McConnell celebrated the Democrats’ divisions by pointing out that Pelosi’s move backfired.
“This is a challenging time to create bipartisan agreement. But the Speaker Pelosi has managed to do the impossible. She has created growing bipartisan unity — in opposition to her own reckless games with impeachment,” McConnell posted to his social media account.
Some political experts think the real reason Pelosi withheld the articles of impeachment had to do with the State of the Union.
Pelosi already invited the President to deliver the State of the Union on Tuesday, February 4.
The last thing Pelosi wants is President Trump coming off a bipartisan exoneration in the Senate standing on the floor of the House of Representatives in front of Speaker Pelosi and taking a victory lap on impeachment.
By withholding the articles Pelosi’s real aim was to delay the start of a Senate impeachment trial to try and deny the President that moment.
