Nancy Pelosi, Under Immense Pressure, Set to Send Articles of Impeachment to Senate
It’s about time!
Perhaps there is yet a shimmering light somewhere in this dark and foreboding week for the American people.
For weeks on end, we have been held hostage by the House Democrats and their Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. After passing two articles of impeachment against Donald Trump prior to the holiday break last year, Pelosi withheld the legislative documents, preventing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from moving ahead with a trial in the higher chamber. The operating assumption was that Pelosi was angling for a say in how McConnell would conduct that trial, but her reluctance quickly grew into a nuisance not only for the GOP, but for members of her own party as well.
Now, with pressure coming from all sides, Pelosi has finally relinquished, indicating that she’ll send the articles over sometime next week.
“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,” Pelosi said in a letter to House Democrats.
Pelosi added she will talk to the caucus at their weekly meeting Tuesday morning on “how to proceed further.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — having already secured GOP votes for his preferred trial framework — could start the impeachment trial shortly after he receives the articles.
This could mean an end to the long national nightmare of impeachment, as McConnell has repeatedly insisted that any trial in the Senate would be both swift and vindicating for the Commander in Chief.
