Trump Slams Pelosi on the Question of Fairness

President Trump has lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for making demands of the Senate regarding his upcoming trial. Pelosi has been holding back sending the two impeachment articles to the upper chamber, and Trump is accusing her of “crying for fairness” after leading an “unfair” process in the House.

Throughout the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, Trump and fellow Republicans criticized the level of “fairness” of the process, including the initial closed-door sessions with witnesses, an invitation for him to participate in a hearing while he was overseas, and the decision to cite the president’s assertion of executive privilege as evidence of obstruction as opposed to battling it out in court.

“Pelosi gives us the most unfair trial in the history of the U.S. Congress, and now she is crying for fairness in the Senate, and breaking all rules while doing so,” Trump tweeted Monday morning. “She lost Congress once, she will do it again!”

Both chambers of Congress are engaged in an unusual battle over the next steps in the historic process, after the House accused Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for his actions concerning Ukraine, in the third-ever impeachment of an American president.

Pelosi is now indicating she will not turn over the articles of impeachment to the Senate or name impeachment managers, until the upper chamber announces the process of how the trial will be conducted.

Coinciding with that position, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has demanded that the Senate be allowed to subpoena documents and witnesses who did not appear before the House. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., responded by saying that the Senate’s role is not to do what the House failed to do during what he has called “the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.”

Pelosi Will Eventually Yield

Meanwhile, most political experts, and of course the GOP, see Pelosi’s position as tenuous at best, and that she is going to have to relent, and soon.

“She will yield. There’s no way she can hold this position,” Marc Short, the chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, said. “We think her case is going nowhere.’’

Trump continues to call Pelosi’s holdup “unfair” and claimed that Democrats were violating the Constitution, as the delay threatened to prolong the pain of impeachment and cast uncertainty on the timing of the vote Trump is gearing up to use as his vindication.

Short called Pelosi’s delay unacceptable, saying she’s “trampling” Trump’s rights to “rush this through, and now we’re going to hold it up to demand a longer process in the Senate with more witnesses.”

“If her case is so air-tight … why does she need more witnesses to make her case?’’ Short said.

    NANCY PELOSI…..Has lost her usefulness to this country,& her now defunct, & embarrassing party! Perhaps, mental illness? Perhaps, she has lost her soul? At any rate, her actions, embarrass her party, & her intelligence! Such a sorry state of this Congress….totally irresponsible, & now, “ineffectual”! There is absolutely no defense for their actions, or, lack of cohesive sensibility! God help Amreica…..& God help President ATrump, to overcome this unjust action!

    Pelosi already knows they blew it big time, not only have they drove over ten million more dollars in donations to Trump, they have lost even more support because of it. Putting Schiff in charge has to be one the the most stupid things she has done and voters already see it as a scam. Why Pelosi would think the main stream media would have been able to sway voters is very hard to believe after they have lost all trust they had before Trump was elected. Never in history has a party destroyed themselves more than Dems have these past three years.

    Pelosi and Schiff doesn’t care about fairness. They have shown that from the day Trump won the election. They have become insane with hate because their CROOKED Hillary lost. Pelosi bribed her way to be made Head of the House and has shown from day one that she can’t control the House. I would love to see Pelosi, Kerry, Biden, Romney and their sons in prison because of their crooked deals in Ukraine.

    This is all about losing everything the democrats took decades to gain.they know now it’s useless to even submit the articles of impeachment.
    A reminder to the democratic party, the world is watching and the media that supports you is failing overseas (cnn)
    It’s everywhere, it’s even circulating the dark web.

    Are we ever going to get justice in this country? Trumps trail was a joke and anyone judge, lawyer or anyone in the criminal justice system will tell you that. People she doesn’t even know what her job is trying to have the Sentors do her job and telling them how is even funnier. Some of them don’t even know their job or what they are doing because they are driven by hate. Wake up people we are being pushed into another civil war and if you don’t think it will happen here you will be helpless for the safety of your family. Don’t think FEMA will be there. Research what happened when thousands were held and unable to leave living under the worst conditions after hurricane Katerina. While people who are ready taking care of their families and not under gun point. Look it up read their stories of rape and murder. If that’s what you want for your family keep your head in the sand or if you want better vote Trump and get rid of the Democratic Party.
