Nancy Pelosi tried to build a dam to keep Trump impeached forever, but things are going against her.
It’s clear Mitch McConnell was either going to give Trump a chance to testify—or throw out the articles outright.
Pelosi’s bogus scheme would have backfired. In fact, this would have worked out to Trump’s advantage.
So, like a cornered rat, Pelosi has been sitting on impeachment for a month. She is refusing to obey the Constitution by sending the articles to the Senate.
Perhaps she thought this would ruin Trump’s re-election chances. Perhaps she thought she could hold it over his end for eternity?
But now, Sen. Graham is saying her dam is cracking. The trial is happening – with or without her.
From The Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Wednesday that the Senate will start its impeachment proceedings next week, signaling an end to the stalemate over the articles which have sat in the House since December…
“You said it was urgent; if you believe it to be urgent, send it to the Senate for disposition,” Graham said. “She’s losing Democrats in the Senate. The impeachment dam of Nancy Pelosi is about to crack.”
Uh-oh, Nance! Looks like Graham and the Senate will be holding their trial next week.
All your delaying tactics and schemes have backfired, haven’t they?
Lindsey Graham has been clear for a long time that he would not tolerate Pelosi’s delaying.
He gave her a deadline and she rejected it.
So, he’s going to make sure the Senate will hold the trial and begin proceedings right away.
After all, the Senate doesn’t answer to Pelosi. They could hold a trial at any moment, with or without her input.
The Constitution required Pelosi to send her House articles over with managers. But she clearly doesn’t care about the Constitution.
Pelosi was playing games with our government with the fate of our country. She and her House cronies thought they could abuse impeachment (an extreme measure only to be used rarely) as a political tool to control the outcome of the next election.
But the Senate wants no part in this charade. They will be holding their proceedings next week, and justice will be done.
Oh, I’m sure Pelosi’s going to complain about this to everyone who will listen.
But is anyone going to care?
She made it clear her priority was not the country, but her petty politics. Now, she’s reaping the whirlwind.
SHARE if you’re ready to see the Senate finally end this impeachment nonsense!
