Pelosi Is Afraid to Send “Shoddy” Articles of Impeachment to the Senate

In the wake of the historic House impeachment of President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., “may be too afraid” to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate after the speaker suggested she won’t submit them until she believes a “fair trial will take place.”

McConnell lambasted the impeachment from the Senate floor as “the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair … in modern history.” He said Pelosi “gave in to a temptation” and that the House impeached Trump “simply because they disagree with a presidential act.”

The two articles of impeachment approved by the House on Wednesday charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. But, McConnell has said that those articles are “fundamentally unlike any articles that any prior House of Representatives has ever passed” and the idea that Democrats will withhold the articles, suggests “House Democrats may be too afraid to even transmit their shoddy work product to the Senate.”

“Looks like the prosecutors are getting cold feet in front of the entire country and second-guessing whether they even want to go to trial,” McConnell said, trashing the “comical” idea that Democrats will now “sit on their hands.”

Such actions “concede that their own allegations are unproven,” McConnell said, suggesting that “every future president” could now face impeachment, “free to swamp the Senate with trial after trial, no matter how baseless.”

McConnell continued from the floor, “This particular House of Representatives has let its partisan rage at this particular president create a toxic new precedent that will echo well into the future,” accusing Democrats of giving in to “temptation” with their impeachment vote while challenging their handling of the articles in the aftermath.

After an impeachment in the House, the articles are normally sent over to the upper chamber for an impeachment trial. Yet in the latest twist, Pelosi has indicated that she may not send over articles of impeachment yet — until she gets reassurances about the Senate process.

“We’ll make a decision… as we go along,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday, adding that “we’ll see what the process will be on the Senate side.”

That is what raised McConnell’s ire, and had him lash out saying that Pelosi was now “afraid” to have the “shoddy” case sent to the upper chamber.

Trump also expressed disdain over the idea that Democrats may not immediately submit the articles, tweeting on Thursday, “Now the Do Nothing Party want to Do Nothing with the Articles & not deliver them to the Senate, but it’s Senate’s call!”

“The Senate shall set the time and place of the trial,” he said. “If the Do Nothing Democrats decide, in their great wisdom, not to show up, they would lose by Default!”

However, the articles must be transmitted to the Senate before such a trial could begin.

    In the American Judicial System, the “fair trial”
    applies to the treatment of the defendant, NOT whether she likes or holds sway on the proceedings or outcome. Pelosi thinks everyone is stupid so she babbles on with whatever comes to her jumbled mind!

    They should have 2 weeks to send it forward. If not case dismissed and a waste of our taxpayers money once again. The house democrats think they have all the power. They think they control the senate and have executive power. Why are they asking for fair trial? Because they know damn well they didn’t give one. Is everyone supposed to bow down and kiss the asses! I say impeach them and make them spend their Lilith reimburse us Americans. Kick Pelosi and Schiff and Nader out. Who wants to bet one of the plans to run for presidency themselves. They wasted 3 years that they could have been dealing with the shit of their own state of Ca. She is certifiably crazy. Let’s go after the democrats that interfered with Trumps campaign. O but that’s allowed right? If people can’t see how the democrats want to control everything including us Americans then they really are blind. Do something while you can. VOTE THEM ALL OUT INCLUDING ALL THE RADICALS!

    Of course nutty nan is “afraid” to send the contrived articles of impeachment to the Senate – -because she know it means “instant acquittal” for President Trump, the charges will be nullified and thrown out, almost instantly AND she and her commie cohorts will be made to look like the FOOLS they are! I can hardly wait to see her go crashing down in flames ! Aboard a plane would be even better.

    Pelosi, must be really out of touch with reality. She is acting like an old nasty,evil old women that you see in many of the Nursing Homes. Pelosi is almost 80 years old,she has proven to the American People, she is absolutely no longer capable of being the Speaker of House and must BE IMPEACHED OR SHE MUST RESIGN, since she is making a complete fool out of herself, and is a disgrace to America, the American People and the ENTIRE WORLD.

    I’m sure everyone has heard the expression “sweet young thing” to describe a… girl. Now what are the opposite words for sweet young thing? You get an accurate description of power mad Nancy Pelosi. She got to be Speaker and became too big for her britches. Now, Nancy, don’t foul them. Quisling was bad enough for history books. You don’t need to be there too. Go clean up your district

    First, Senate should send a FOIA demand for copies of articles of impeachment. Having a true copy of articles Senate can LEGALLY hold a trial. They will have been delivered according to law. This ends the political play. I can get them for the senate within 2 weeks. Done deal. If House does not fund the trial then Senate can demand funding within 36 hours and notify House that failure to provide funding will require a non-prosecution filing with an instant judgement of rescinding the complaint with prejudice. Another done deal and permanently ends the issues at hand.

    As to the threat of continued investigation, the issue is that there is zero evidence of wrongdoing. No grand jury may be convened to investigate or evaluate at any time where there is no evidence of a crime. The House is the Grand Jury and instead of moving on facts of illegal acts it is attempting to “discover” some illegal activity to file articles over. This is a violation of law. There must be clear and convincing evidence of some crime BEFORE a grand jury can actually convene.

    I suggest that the executive branch file a complaint with SCOTUS to determine if the HOUSE has standing to convene investigations where there is no evidence of wrongdoing. Also to ask SCOTUS what penalties and or responses by the government to end such practiced exis, up to and including charges of Treason.
