Well, The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, wanted to “show the power of the gavel” and the power hungry windbag did just that.
“If I did nothing else, he saw the power of the gavel there,” Pelosi told the
Now, Pelosi is using the Articles Of Impeachment as leverage; as a negotiating tactic. The House is trying to tell the Senate how to do it's
business, by forcing the Senate to call witnesses and run a "fair" and "impartial" trial. Even though she's on Christmas break, she apparently
has time to taunt the President.
The Senate isn't obligated to let Pelosi's "managers" know anything, because the Senate has sole power over the upcoming impeachment trial. Nancy
is just grandstanding and Democrats could care less, even though one of their own impeachment witnesses, Harvard legal scholar Noah Feldman stated,
could legitimately say that he wasn’t truly impeached at all.”
Pelosi isn't stupid and knows full well this impeachment will fizzle and die in the Senate. She knows her current position of withholding the
articles of impeachment is untenable, and probably knew all along that there was no evidence of "high crimes and misdemeanors" to charge Trump with.
But it never really mattered to the Dems. Why? Because this impeachment was nothing more than an orchestrated smear campaign, designed to hurt
Trump's electability in 2020. Has it worked out for the Dems? I think not.
From CNN On Dec 22:
On the morning of President Trump’s likely impeachment in the House of Representatives, Gallup released a poll showing a six-point jump
in the president’s approval rating.
Analysis: Trump is gaining ground heading into 2020
Meanwhile, the impeachment of Trump doesn't seem to be making much of an impact on the polls.
However, the Democrats will never
accept defeat. Hell no. Even though they're withholding the articles of impeachment, they're licking their
chops, hoping "to recommend new
articles of impeachment.” They plan on running this 'Never-Ending-Impeachment-Circus Show' as long
as possible, perhaps right up to the 2020 election and beyond if Trump gets re-elected.
The House Judiciary Committee told a federal appeals court Monday that it still wants former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify as
it could potentially lead to the introduction of “additional articles of impeachment” against President Donald Trump over his contacts with
“If McGahn’s testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not
covered by the Articles approved by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly—including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend
new articles of impeachment,” the brief reads.
You would think that clearer heads would prevail in the Democratic Party. Oops...me bad. There are some who think that Trump will bring Putin into The
White House, if he's not removed from office.
Yep Maxine, that'll work...if the impeachment farce doesn't work, lets start talking again about Russia's influence over President Trump. Um, the
American people didn't buy that before, so why will they buy that crock of BS now??
The Democrats will continue to focus on their hate and lies, and they will utilize their propaganda machine (MSM) to spread their message. They'll
find ways to bring up more crap on Trump, right up to the 2020 election. That's all they have. Their candidates for President are weak and they're
all laughing stocks. Will the Democrats ever become reasonable again? This journalist nails it:
Here’s what the Democrats should do. They should get this impeachment idiocy behind them and never speak of it again. They should start
pretending to be reasonable, especially on popular things like infrastructure and non-crazy health care reform, even if Trump gets some credit for
them. And they should stop calling normal Americans “racist.”
When you decide your opponent is evil, and that his supporters are likewise evil, you kind of limit your ability to pretend to be
reasonable and compromise. You commit yourself to a fight to the death inside the Octagon. And that’s a fight that the data show they are not
