Pelosi’s Impeachment Predicament

15

More brazen corruption from the deranged Democrats. Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not want to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. That is because she knows that this sham impeachment will be torn apart in the Republican Senate, were President Trump will have a fair trial. Therefore, she will now work to stall this process for as long as she can. Only the American people can put an end to this insanity, by voting the Democrats out of office in 2020.

Mitch McConnell rips Pelosi for impeachment delay, says Dems ‘afraid’ to transmit ‘shoddy’ articles. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set the stage Thursday for a potentially bruising fight between the leadership of the two chambers over impeachment, as he tore into Nancy Pelosi for “shoddy work” and said Democrats may be “too afraid” to send the articles to the Senate after the House speaker abruptly held off on transmitting them.

Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has a constitutional obligation to send articles of impeachment to the Senate, Judge Andrew Napolitano said Thursday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Pete Hegseth, Steve Doocy, and Ainsley Earhardt, Napolitano said that while he has said there was a legal basis for impeachment in the House, lawmakers now have a “moral and constitutional obligation” to send the two articles of impeachment to the Senate.

In a news conference on Wednesday, following the House impeachment vote, Pelosi said that Democrats may wait to send their articles of impeachment against President Trump to the GOP-controlled Senate, for fear that they are incapable of holding a fair trial.

“Well, guess what?” asked Napolitano. “Under the Constitution, the Senate writes its own rules not subject to the approval of the speaker of the House or even the majority of the House.”

Earhardt asked Napolitano if the Senate could potentially take up the impeachment case without Pelosi passing it over.

“I don’t know,” he said. “That’s never happened.”

“But, the president is entitled to a trial to seek exoneration,” said Napolitano. “If these articles just sit on the speaker’s desk and go nowhere, that would be a profound and grave injustice to the president.”
