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.

    I have no words for the utter disregard Pelosi and the democrats have for the American people, the country and our Constitution. She and they are an embarrassment, mocked worldwide, and shown for the incompetent legislators they are. I would think they would hang their heads in shame.

    The democrats have backed themselves into a corner by rushing their impeachment scheme. Now they will suffer the consequences of bowing to the radicals in their party. When Trump wins next November voters better return a house and senate majority to the Republicans. Then watch while the president continues his success at Making America Great Again. Trump, house and senate wins in 2020!

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 could keep the papers forever. She wanted them. She has them. Said she’d planned 22 months to get them. And now wants to run the Senate it seems. By the way, I am a conservative Democrat and thinks this process stinks. We are the United States of America. UNITED! I don’t hate Dems, Independents, or Republicans. But it seems to be that the Dems In house who have made and voted on those unfair rules do hate the Republicans. All of America is not like that. There’s God loving kind people in all parties. Sadly we don’t see that part on the news. It all seems to be about hating the Dems over last election. Seems to me we’ve wasted 3 years doing nothing except trying to torture POTUS. And the new crew who want to turn us into a socialist nation – why don’t they just move to a socialist country? They are wanting socialism but I don’t see any leaving to go where it exists. Maybe if they left, they’d be happy. And maybe the ones who stay will turn to God, seek his face, and he will heal our land. And we’d be happy. I’m so tired of the news. All I’ve heard is impeach President. God please bless this land I love that is now full of so much hate. And thanks to our military past and present for keeping us free. Unless the socialists get in power and destroy us.

    The Dems can’t find anyone to run against Trump. He was an Independent and was for neither party. The Republicans are the ones that decided he needed a party to run with. He went with the Republicans. Dems don’t have anybody that can win.

    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)

    Why do you participate in spreading half truths? Anyone with an iota of sense knows that the reason the House could not do a full investigation is because Trump claimed Executive Privilege over an area he knows would sink him. He would not allow any key witnesses to testify before Congress. Therefore, of course Congress must seek to get those witnesses during the trial in the Senate. But the minority leader in the Senate had decided to join with Trumps team and make our 3 areas of government to be only 2. Leaving the only check on democracy to be the House. Everyone knows Donald has obstructed Congress, broken the law and he cried like a baby when he was called on it. What is a shame is that Republicans placate his temper tantrums, leading him to be even more of a child with no sense of humanness for Americans. Putin said it so it must be true. Damn what our FBI and intelligence officers revealed. He is an imbarrassment and must be removed from office. America is the laughing stock of the world, being guided by a former KGB agent (Putin) who had said repeatedly that his objective was to destroy democracy the world over. He is succeeding with Trump. Let’s MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN by removing this clown and restoring some resemblance of decency to the office of the Presidency. For the Republicans to put party over decency and the law, femomstrates that they care absolutely nothing about America. Shame on those rolling with this guy

    Over the years I have voted and had that candidate win. They have passed laws that was against the people of the United States and never have a seen politicians go so far to go against that President. Now the people have gotten tired of the abuse from the ones we have put in office. When we pushed and polled and finally got President Trump. He has agreed with us that this country needs change. We are tired of busting our butts in factories and for companies that take everything they can from us. When we try to push back we are confronted with a Right to Work law that gives them the right to do anything they want. Even if at one time it would have been illegal. We support Trump 100%. I can’t believe that some will go to such methods to remove a president that we want to put someone in his place that they can control.

    Witnesses for what? President Trump has done nothing wrong, much less criminal. The democrats are violating the Constitution with their Lies , Falsehoods and Slander . Congress takes an Oath which They are surely not following with their constant Witch Hunt beginning before Trump was sworn into Office. The Democrats are the ones needing to be removed – what is the Country coming to when these
    Sseditionists are allowed to break the law and run up millions of dollars in expense to the Taxpayers!

    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.
