Pelosi may withhold impeachment articles until she gets what she wants, withholding legislation approved by congress until she receives....Wait for it.. A Quid pro quo .

Pelosi may withhold impeachment articles




“We’re not having that discussion,” she said, adding that it “would have been our intention” to send the articles forthwith, “but we’ll see what happens over there.”


Pelosi would not answer questions about whether she was entertaining an indefinite hold on the articles — one that could prevent a trial from taking place before the next presidential election.

It's pathetic how, after violating every rule and standard of conduct in their rush to impeach Trump, now they're suddenly demanding the Senate be fair to them.

Pelosi knows this was all a sham and nothing will come of it. 3 years of wasted time and millions of dollars. These poor democrats who have been lied to all thought that an impeachment meant removed from office.

Oooooh yeah, they didn't mention that tiny little bit to their peeps.

Essentially, Trump will never be acquitted if this happens. The House did its job and now we can (in the words of Mitch McConnell) let the American people decide.

Despite what Dear Leader POTUS tells you, no, Article 2 does not allow the president to do 'whatever he wants.'

SCOTUS has a duty to resolve this disagreement between branches. And given the way SCOTUS is arranged, i'd expect we will see the Senate recieve the articles soon.

If not, then the Senate will need to act alone. That will be a nightmare for our nation, far worse than we are seeing now. SCOTUS must do their job.

I don't se any reason why the Senate couldn't simply set a date, and if the House fails to present the articles for consideration, then the Senate will act accordingly.

Article 1 Section 3 of the Constitution

www.usconstitution.net...


The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.


Now correct me if I'm wrong, but the Constitution does not say the Senate shall have the sole Power dependent on what the House wants.

Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution provides that the President
may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of
them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the
time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall
think proper


Try again

I say impeachment/withholding articles is an extraordinary occassion.

Pelosi really didn’t want to talk about impeachment this morning, only taking a couple of questions on it before interrupting a Fox News reporter and telling them she wasn’t going to answer any more questions on impeachment:


I guess impeachment isn't an important issue

Pelosi and her party are a JOKE.

The problem is that there are articles ready to present that are "hanging over his head". Its not like the Senate can violate the constitution by moving forward without the procedural stuff (managers presenting charges, etc).

But if they are forced to....im sure they will. I still expect SCOTUS to handle it.
