Pelosi Defends Delay In Sending Impeachment Articles To Senate, Says McConnell Is A ‘Rogue Leader’

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is probably feeling quite proud of herself for finally managing to get President Trump impeached in the House on Wednesday, has decided to delay sending over the articles of impeachment to the Senate, calling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a “rogue leader.”

During a rather strange press conference, Pelosi worked hard to shut down any questions reporters asked her about the overall impeachment process. She indicated that the House would send over the articles to the upper chamber, insisting that how the process develops from this point forward is up to the Senate.

“The next thing for us will be when we see the process that is set forth in the Senate, then we’ll know the number of managers that we may have to go forward, and who we would choose,” Pelosi said Thursday.

After an impeachment in the House, the articles are normally sent over to the upper chamber for an impeachment trial, but Pelosi signaled earlier that the House is waiting for the Senate to set out how Trump’s trial will be conducted before they determine next steps, such as designating impeachment managers who will represent them. This prompted outrage from Republicans who worried she would simply refuse to transmit the articles, thus denying Trump the chance at acquittal.

Pelosi made clear Thursday that she is not prepared to name those managers yet “because we don’t know the arena we are in.” As she did Wednesday, Pelosi insisted House Democrats want to see a “fair process” — and she dismissed GOP allegations about what her intentions may be.

“Frankly, I don’t care what the Republicans say,” she said.

Early in the day on Thursday, Sen. Mitch McConnell said that Pelosi is “too afraid” to send over the articles, stating that it looked like the “prosecutors are getting cold feet.”

McConnell also went on the warpath against Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues by saying the whole thing was a “rushed and rigged inquiry.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci Makes Prediction On When He Thinks COVID-19 Vaccine Will Be Ready

Published

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading expert on infectious diseases, recently stated that he believes a vaccine for the coronavirus will be fully tested, prepared, and effective to use by the end of the year. Whether or not folks on the left want to hear this is another story. If you look at the major breakthroughs that have happened lately in regard to the virus, it seems as if Democrats actually want this pandemic and the restrictions with it, to stick around for a lot longer. This probably has something to do with the presidential election in November. via Daily Wire: “I would still put my money on November, December,” Fauci said at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute panel, CNN reported. Fauci, an immunologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who serves on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said testing a vaccine requires about 150 subjects to actually get the virus. “Right now, the trials are over two thirds enrolled – really close to full enrollment on one, and over full enrollment on the other,” he said. “It really depends on where the sites are and how many infections there are in a site. So you could get your answer sooner, or you can get your answer a bit later.” “Fauci said his projection of November or December is informed by calculations based on where the clinical trial sites are in their studies,” CNN said in its report. President Trump stated earlier in the week that new plans are underway from the Department of Defense working in tandem with health agencies, to ensure that every single American can get the vaccine for free, once it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Agencies in the government are eyeing January as the target date…

As November Election Draws Near, NRA Reveals It Raised More In August Than Any Month In 2016

Published

on

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, which is a political action committee that is associated with the pro-second amendment organization, ended up raising more than $1.7 million in the month of August, completely annihilating its August 2016 totals and raising more cash than any month ahead of the election held that year. One has to wonder how much the riots, looting, and violence that has spread across the country has had to do with that? You know, the fact that people are now wide awake to the reality that the left isn’t going to be there to help them or manage the chaos exploding around them, is an effective promotion of the importance of gun rights. via Fox News: The $1,725,700 the organization raised in August is almost $240,000 higher than its best month of 2016, March, when it raised just under $1.5 million. The NRA’s PAC pulled in $1.4 million in August 2016. “The NRA is grateful to our members and gun owners for a record-breaking August,” NRA spokeswoman Amy Hunter told Fox News. “Americans step up when their rights are in danger, and they’re stepping up now because they know the stakes of this election couldn’t be higher.” Hunter added that its August fundraising total “is proof that people want to protect their gun rights and their right to self-defense, and that they trust and depend on the NRA to protect these rights and freedoms.” This massive increase in fundraising is happening as the November election, which is a showdown between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, draws nearer and nearer. Both individuals have very different stances on this issue, with Trump being very pro-gun and Biden being the polar opposite. The August numbers pulled in by the NRA are the highest it has brought…
