House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is nothing more than far-left activist in lockstep with her party’s mission of impeaching President Donald Trump at all costs because she knows Democrats have little to no chance of defeating him in the 2020 election.
Pelosi and her allies in the House rushed through a sham impeachment case against the president with bogus allegations, flimsy evidence, and little support from the country.
But Pelosi has been slapped with an “obstruction of Congress” allegation after she refused to send these articles to the Senate — as is required by the Constitution — for nearly a month.
The law demands that the articles must be delivered to the Senate so they can hold a trial. The Senate has the sole power to vote to acquit or convict the president.
Pelosi caved last week and did send the articles — after the House made a mockery out of this process.
She thinks she gave Democrats “leverage” and the upper hand but one Constitutional scholar says the Senate could vote to charge her with obstruction of Congress for her stunt.
By not delivering the articles of impeachment for nearly a month, Pelosi attempted to break down a critical constitutional boundary.
Blurring the lines between the prosecutorial and adjudicative aspects of the process for partisan, political advantage serves no cause of justice, and is detrimental to the Constitution’s design, as well as to the Founders’ desire to limit what Hamilton called “the awful discretion” to “doom” an important public figure “to honor or to infamy.”
In other words, Pelosi dared to accuse Trump of “obstructing Congress” even though he was exercising his Constitutional rights.
Then, Pelosi literally obstructed Congress by refusing to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate — as is required by the Constitution.
Pelosi is also delusional to still think she has any power to dictate how the Senate conducts its trial, which officially began on Tuesday.
It’s clear Pelosi is out of line and abused her power — which is why Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) previously suggested removing her completely from the process.
Graham expressed hope the Senate could conclude the impeachment trial before the end of January and predicted that a few Democratic senators could vote with Republicans to acquit the president.
To Graham’s point about bipartisan support for acquitting Trump, reports suggest these 5 Senate Democrats in battleground states could vote against impeachment:
Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona
Joe Manchin of West Virginia
Doug Jones of Alabama
Gary Peters of Michigan
Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire
At this point, almost everything has come to fruition. We know how this is going to play out.
Trump will be completely acquitted and fully exonerated in the Senate because the Democrat’s case is incredibly weak.
Democrats are whining, issuing ridiculous demands, and already claiming the process is “rigged.”
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already revealed exactly what’s going to happen when the impeachment trial gets going in the Senate.
