Democrats Losing Patience With Pelosi Over Impeachment Articles

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is beginning to really get on a lot of people’s nerves by withholding the articles of impeachment that were passed by the House, as the trial in the Senate cannot begin without them being transmitted over.

As you can imagine, Republicans are not happy about Pelosi’s attempts at a quid pro quo involving getting assurances of witnesses being called in the Senate trial, but what’s more, Democrats are also getting a little upset with her as well.

Here’s more from Fox News:

Pelosi, D-Calif., indicated to Democratic colleagues — first on Tuesday in a memo, and again on Thursday during a press conference — that she plans to continue to hold onto articles of impeachment, at least until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., releases a resolution outlining the terms for a Senate trial.

“We need to see the arena in which we are sending our [impeachment] managers. Is that too much to ask?” Pelosi said Thursday, adding she first wants to know the “terms of engagement” for a Senate trial and voicing concern that senators won’t be impartial.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith, D-Wash., was the latest influential figure to deliver that message Thursday morning — before he reversed himself just a few hours later.

“I understand what the speaker is trying to do, basically trying to use the leverage of that to work with Democratic and Republican senators to try to get a reasonable trial—a trial that would actually show evidence and bring out witnesses. But at the end of the day, just like we control it in the House, Mitch McConnell controls it in the Senate,” Smith said on CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday.

“I think it was perfectly advisable for the speaker to try to leverage that to get a better deal,” he continued, but added “at this point, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.”

“I think it is time to send the impeachment to the Senate and let Mitch McConnell be responsible for the fairness of the trial,” Smith continued. “He ultimately is.”

Later Thursday morning, Smith seemed to walk back his previous statement, saying he “misspoke,” believing the House should take whatever steps necessary to ensure a fair trial in the Senate.

At this point, it’s not clear whether or not Pelosi applied some pressure to Smith in order to get him to fall in line and support her strategy.

Sen. Joe Manchin, also a Democrat, has said, “I think it’s time to turn the articles over. Let’s see where the Senate can take it.”

Even super liberal Sen. Dianne Feinstein has had enough of the games and is ready to move on with things.

“The longer it goes on, the less urgent it becomes,” Feinstein said while speaking to Politico. “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”

Others including Sens. Angus King, Richard Blumenthal, and Chris Coons have also joined with Manchin and Feinstein, causing pressure to mount on Pelosi.

Imagine the kind of field day the press would have if a late-night talk show host treated Eric, Ivanka, or Don Jr. with kid gloves. They would go absolutely berserk. Then again, when you’re a liberal, there is literally nothing you can’t get away with. Lest we forget when it comes to the son of the current president, Hunter Biden is not only a drug addict but he fathered a child with a stipper and dated his deceased brother’s wife for a year. The guy is the whole package! From New York Post: Hunter Biden continued his lovefest with an adoring, understanding, thoroughly enchanted media last night with a lengthy spot on Jimmy Kimmel. Never have two people found crack addiction so funny, or international influence-peddling so banal, or obvious lies so easy to explain away. CONTINUED: “The laptop,” Kimmel said. Now this is the laptop that contains thousands of emails and texts from Hunter Biden to his father, wife, sister-in-law-turned-mistress, his sister-in-law’s married sister, who also becomes his mistress (try to keep up), drug dealers and prostitutes and colleagues at Burisma, the Ukrainian company that paid him $50,000 a month for God knows what.

Dem-Controlled House Schedules Vote on Reparations for Black Americans — Details

An issue none of us had ANYTHING to do with!

What kind of person with even a shred of pride would accept money for something that in no way affected their life? Conversely, what kind of person would support such nonsense? It is absolutely insane how far the left has taken things. From Fox News: The House took a step forward on a slavery reparations bill Friday by scheduling it for debate and a vote in the Judiciary Committee. The bill would set up a commission to study reparations. If voted out of committee, the matter would come up on the House floor for the first time since 1989. The late Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced slavery reparations legislation in the House each session for nearly 30 years to no avail. CONTINUED: Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the measure, which is widely opposed by Republicans, is “not intended to divide” but to “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.” “Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Nadler said in a statement.
