Pelosi Caves and will Finally Transmit Articles of Impeachment (Maybe)

Last year the Democrats claimed that President Trump was such a threat to all things that they had to rush an impeachment before Christmas. Then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sat on the articles, refusing to transmit them to the Senate for a trial. Because she’s drunk with power, she thought she could force the Republicans in the Senate to hold a sham trial like they did in the House. Proving that she’s actually just drunk, Pelosi has caved and will finally transmit the articles of impeachment. Or will she?
Fox News reported last week:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she will take steps next week to send impeachment articles to the Senate, after delaying the process since last month in a bid to extract favorable terms for a trial.
The decision to release the articles came as fellow Democrats in recent days had started to voice frustration and impatience with the speaker’s approach. They stressed the urgency with which impeachment was treated at the end of 2019 and questioned why the House would then delay a trial by using articles as leverage.
“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate. I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” said Pelosi in a letter to House Democrats.
Wait a second. They are going to vote on a resolution to transmit the articles? Why? Pelosi simply needs to courier them over to the Senate and assign managers. There is no need to have a vote on this. They already voted for impeachment on two articles. That should be it.
What are they going to call this resolution? The “Should We Really Do This Silly Thing Act of 2020?”
This is more nonsense from the Democrats who voted to impeach Present Trump without any specific crime or evidence of an impeachable offense. It’s also yet another stall tactic from a woman who knows how bad the fraudulent impeachment looks for her party and leadership.
If Pelosi actually transmits the articles in the next week or so, the real fun begins. A senate trial would coincide with the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries, maybe even Nevada. That means that Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, all who are also running for the Democratic party nomination, would have to sit out the primaries while attending the impeachment trial. That just leaves Joe Biden free to campaign in all the early-voting states by himself.
Maybe, just maybe, that was Pelosi’s plan all along: to help rig the primaries in Biden’s favor. Though they didn’t impeach Trump for it, Democrats claimed that the President was seeking to influence the 2020 election by asking Ukraine to investigate Biden. Here, Pelosi and the Democrats are actually influencing the 2020 democratic primaries (election) by giving Biden a huge campaigning advantage.
