Pelosi Promises to Deliver Impeachment Articles — Will it Make a Difference?

After delaying the process for almost a month in an effort to get Republicans to agree to her terms for a Senate trial, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced last Friday that she will finally take the necessary steps this week to send impeachment articles to the Senate, as required by the Constitution.

“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate. I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues last Friday.

Even the Democrats were beginning to voice their frustration and impatience over the fact that Pelosi refused to release the articles, which is what triggered the Speaker to finally stop attempting to use the articles as leverage. In fact, in recent days, Democrats stressed their concern with the Speaker’s approach. House Democrats questioned Pelosi’s actions and also questioned why the urgency with which impeachment was treated at the end of 2019 has now been delayed.

“I think it’s time to turn the articles over,” said Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) “Let’s see where the Senate can take it.”

Even Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D-CA) called out Pelosi for the delay of sending the articles.

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

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was thrilled to hear that Pelosi finally decided to move forward and had a simple response: “About time.”

Pelosi now contends that there is new information on the Ukraine controversy that has been discovered.

“I am very proud of the courage and patriotism exhibited by our House Democratic Caucus as we support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi wrote. She continued with her letter, indicating that the Senate must conduct a “fair trial” with witnesses and documents, which is completely contradictory to the actions during the House impeachment trial.

McConnell has indicated that he has the votes needed to pass the resolution and begin the trial, once he receives the articles. While most impeachment resolutions can pass with a simple majority which is 51 votes., it takes 67 votes to remove a president from office.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, (R-IA) was not happy at all with Pelosi and blasted her for the delay.

“Speaker Pelosi threw the United States Congress into unnecessary chaos with this pointless delay,” Grassley said in a statement. “From the beginning, it’s been unclear what the goal of this hurry-up-and-wait tactic was or what the country stood to gain. We now know the answer was nothing.”

“We’ve had three weeks of uncertainty and confusion, causing even more division,” he added. “Regardless, I will take my role as a juror seriously and review the evidence presented by both sides before making any determination.”

  1. The only thing this does is move this part of the “plan” the democrats have. Unless the democrats are relieved of their control of congress this kind of garbage will continue after the election. Pelosi will be gone. Her people have had enough of her. But The control must be taken away unless we want congress tied up and with nothing getting done for another four years. We need some cooperation from these people. The president has done his best in keeping his promises even though Pelose and her goons have tried to block everything positive he has done. Let’s hope the senate will move quickly, in spite of Schumer, Romney, and Collins, The only process here is determine if what the house has done is worthy of impeachment. There is absolutely NO reason to “investigate” further. It is not the senate’s job to help or hurt the house. Their only responsibility is trying what the articles contend.

  2. Pelosi and the other criminals and you know who I mean need to be voted out of Washington. People get out there and vote and get the democratic criminals out of Washington. You see what they are doing now. They can destroy this country, it’s people and you and I are part of this country.

  3. This whole affair about impeaching President Trump was all a waist of time and money, why? because the Dems have wanted Trump out before he took over the mess…. In my opinion there is absolutely nothing to impeach the President for, it is LUDICRIS what they have been doing to Trump since he took , lies, lies and more lies, and it is only moving the American People closer and closer to change their party. All that President Trump has done is try to Make America Great Again and he has been succeeding in so many ways..so give it up DEMS, leave the nab alone let him do his job that he isn’t even taking a salary for WAKE UP ….TRUMP forPRESIDENT2020…Have a GREAT DAY EVERY ONE.

  4. Now, let’s get on with the INDICTMENTS against Pelosi, Nadler and Schiff (as well as OTHER Democrats responsible) for CRIMES against the POTUS and the American People, SEDITION and TREASON for running an ILLEGAL coup as per the U.S. Constitution. We have the HARD EVIDENCE now. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  5. It’s about time to get rid of the Commie and terriost house and Senate. It’s very important that Conservative Democrats need to VOTE Republican. Call your Senator’s to vote against impeachment. Nazi Nancy , Jerky Jerry , Asinine Adam and all those Commie Democrats need to be impeached. From the desk of Rick and Kara the Patriots

  6. As far as I can see, the Democrats have flat out lost their minds. Millions of people in this Country voted for President Trump because they knew what was going on in Washington and decided it was way past time to change the “business as usual” criminal shenanigans being perpetrated against us. Then…, along comes an outsider-business-man who also recognized the swamp needed to be drained. He was the only candidate for president in 2016 who could have beaten them at their own game. Although Ben Carson and some of the others also knew it was time to clean up the swamp, none of them had the street-fighter instincts of President Trump. I thank God every day for President Trump because he has fulfilled his campaign promises, (and then some) and is making “America Great Again,” despite having NO COOPERATION from the do-nothing Democrats and some RINOs too!! VOTE TRUMP IN 2020 if you want to see America finally escape the clutches of the evil Democrat Party!!

  7. JUST GIVE THE RNC THE WIN AND GET GOING ON 2020 FOR THE TRIALS ALONE WILL KEEP THE DNC MEMBERS TIED UP FOR YEARS TRYING TO WIN THIS FIGHT. THIS WAY THE COUNTRY’S BUSINESS WILL GO FORWARD. THERE IS NOT ONE DEM WORTH WAITING FOR THE GENERAL NOV VOTING ELECTION. THEY ARE ALL PERVERTED .

  8. “I am very proud of the courage and patriotism exhibited by our House Democratic Caucus as we support and defend the Constitution,” Pelosi wrote. Like the Obama Care legislation I don’t think Pelosi has read the constitution either.
    Nadler ,Pelosi ,Schumer, Waters, Schiff and the gang of socialist democrats, along with their lying propaganda machine called the media are a total disgrace to this nation. Over 20 million illegals , corrupted voting systems in many states, a cost of well over $20 billion dollars a year to support criminals and illegals each year (and that doesn’t count the criminals in Congress ), millions of children being chopped apart in their mothers womb , and enough fools to keep this all in play.

    If that ,and the moral bankruptcy that goes with it isn’t stopped, this once great nation will be a long ago memory in the annals of history

    • Keith………..support and defend the Constitution….old Nancy girl said………well……what she really meant was….to defend the
      communist manifesto …..not our constitution……………………..*****ANGUIS IN HERBA*****
