On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led Democrats in approving a measure to finally forward the articles of impeachment passed on December 18 over to the Senate for a trial. Pelosi had held up the articles after insisting that Trump needed to be impeached as soon as possible because he posed an imminent threat to the 2020 election. Democrats also approved seven impeachment managers, headed by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

“We are here today to cross a very important threshold in American history,” Pelosi said before the mostly partisan vote (228-193). She recalled her long opposition to impeachment and then blamed Trump for forcing her hand. “He crossed a threshold. He gave us no choice.”

Yet the speaker’s own actions suggest she did indeed have a choice. Contrary to her protestations that Trump needed to be removed as soon as possible, Pelosi delayed the process by refusing to hand over the articles of impeachment once the House had voted on them. She claimed that since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would coordinate with White House counsel — as Senate Democrats did during Clinton’s impeachment — the Senate trial would not be fair.

That claim proved particularly rich, given the underhanded manner in which Democrats prosecuted the impeachment hearings. The push began with a “whistleblower” inside the CIA who coordinated with Schiff’s office in crafting his report! For some reason, Democrats took at face value former Vice President Joe Biden’s assertions that his son Hunter had done no wrong in getting a lucrative job at a notoriously corrupt Ukrainian gas company while Biden was the Obama point person on Ukraine.

Democrats insisted that Trump had asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate potential corruption only as a political tactic against Joe Biden, rather than in an attempt to get to the bottom of what seems at the very least a conflict of interest. Pelosi tried to turn a policy dispute into an impeachable offense, and Democrats seized on a situation that is difficult to explain to an average voter.

Worse, when the White House raised a routine executive privilege defense to some congressional subpoenas, House Democrats decided not to wait and challenge the matter in court but rather to add another article of impeachment for “obstruction of Congress.”

For these and other reasons, McConnell condemned the impeachment as an exercise in partisan rage. “House Democrats want to create new rules for this president because they feel uniquely enraged,” he argued. “This is by far the thinnest basis for any House-passed presidential impeachment in American history.” He condemned it as “the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.”

After Pelosi refused to deliver the articles to the Senate, McConnell repeatedly called her bluff, and Pelosi finally caved last Friday after Republicans introduced a measure enabling the Senate to nullify an impeachment passed by the House if the speaker did not forward the articles to the upper chamber. Indeed, this measure makes a great deal of sense, since Pelosi had effectively pocket-vetoed her own impeachment.

Rather than prioritizing the impeachment after the New Year, the House speaker rushed a toothless War Powers Resolution to condemn Trump’s decision to kill Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani.

In addition to Schiff, Pelosi named House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), Jason Crow (D-Colo.), Val Demings (D-Fla.), and Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas) as impeachment managers, to argue the case in the Senate.

Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) was the lone Democrat voting against sending the articles on to the Senate. He had voted against impeachment and he also joined Republicans in signing a letter to the Supreme Court, urging a reconsideration on abortion cases such as Roe v. Wade (1973).

The trial is set to begin next week.

  1. It’s stunning how the Republican’s in the today let Schiff get away with his guilty before President Trump has a chance to defend himself. I want to see Schiff under oath as a witness. Schiff is the SOB who has connection with the whistle blower and is nothing more than a leaker. Pelosi is one disgusting corrupt conspirator who’s done a very good job making sure her agenda is always manages to interfere with the President Trump’s wonderful accomplishments. The swamp is deep and President Trump has exposed it.

    1. I want to point out that the swap is what this impeachment is all about. The Donald has used his presidential power for his own benefit rather than the benefit of the country or the American people. That is the definition of swamp and that is why he is being impeached.

  2. It would be really cool if Schiff was treated the same way he treated the Republicans during his circus of an investigation.

    1. No, it wouldn’t be cool. No one should have to be tried by a secretive Kangaroo Kourt. The fact that the democrats pulled this s**t just goes to show that even though most of them are billionaire lawyers, they still have no clue as to proper jurisprudence. Adam “Schifty” Shiff needs to be voted out of office along with the rest of the democrats who voted for this partisan impeachment. It was they who have obstructed their own functions with this action and they who have abused their power.

      Please, People of California, keep a close eye on the democrats and make certain that their standard voter fraud which consistently elects these a**holes is kept to a minimum!

      1. The only election fraud I know about is the suppression of the voter roles by taking peoples names of the voter registration, which is mostly done in poor and black districts, in a effort to have only rich white voters. The other election . Fraud is Trump trying to get other countries involved in our elections which is a crime for which he has been impeached for and now he is being tried in the Senate to see if he should be fired from holding office.

  3. The fact that this “sham impeachment” has even reached the Senate is beyond belief. The crooked democrats headed by
    the shifty Schiff is a STD by any measure. This corrupt attempt to overthrow our legally elected president started before Trump was even sworn into office. The hard left wing of the democrat party is the tail wagging the dog. Just as the campaign officers of Bernie Sanders are warning that failure to choose the communist as the democratic nominee, or cities will burn, imagine how incensed we loyal Americans who chose Trump for our president must feel now. Impeach at your own risk Nancy.

    1. I find it strange at who you call communist as it is Trump who asked Putin and the Russians to break into Hillary Clinton’s email. A similar but modern version of the crime of the break in of the Watergate hotel. But instead of being done by Americans it was asked of and done by the Russians, a true communist power. All recent Trump crimes seem to benefit Putin’s communist regime, and together with illegally withholding money from Ukraine who was at war with Russia, and to withdraw from defending the Kurds in Syria who the Russians were also fighting with it seems that you are calling the wrong person a communist

  4. have no fear the President will win this senate joke, then he should fire all who lie about the false claims. and put them in jail.

  5. Shifty Schiff is a worthless worm. He is just like Pelosi, watch how giddy fhey get about the impeachment. Who gives out souvenirs & says how solemn the impeachment is. Sickening

  6. Shifty Schiff can’t quit how much is Mike
    Bloomberg paying you and witnesses to lie for you? I know all about your money
    Scandals and trying to coverup Joe
    Biden and his son bribery and Extortion.

  7. We, AMERICANS, see GOD’S GLORY! HE’s the one who gave us the GREATEST PRESIDENT ever, Donald J. TRUMP, and TOGETHER THEY are draining the swamp and deep state! The traitors are desperate to hang on, but evil never wins over GOOD! There are more GOOD AMERICANS than evil, so OUR BEAUTIFUL USA will continue to prosper and lead the freedom loving peoples and nations! We’ve learned to stay vigilant lest we fall prey to another obama coup. He and his cronies must replace our tax dollars they gave to the mullahs and terrorists! obozo and his minions must be sent to GITMO and dealt with for their heinous crimes against our GOD-fearing USA!

  8. shift needs to be removed from his seat an put in JAIL for nOt telling the “TRUTH” an more then that not doing his job !

  9. Well the Lying Peckerhead SCHITTY SCHIFF is the leading LIAR sent over from the House ! Hope he suffers a fatal heart attack at the podium !

  10. The inane gavel pounding member of the “politburo”, hopefully, despite the “interference” run by the Main Sewer Stream Fake Media during the “impeachment” charade, will finally meet his “betters” in the Senate and for once and all be shown up for what he truly IS…and the only way the MSM can “protect” him is by blanking reports on the fool clown idiot.

  11. The first think Mitch should do is have the articles of impeachment read page for page, word for word. Afyer yhe reading he should call for a vocal roll call vote to proceed with the impeachment hearing. Let’s see how many of the Dems and RINOs up for re-election this year love their jobs.

  12. The Democrats who are up for re-election have given everyone a very good reason to vote them OUT in the coming election. I wonder if the Democratic Senators are also thinking about their chances for re-election if they sound as foolish as the tribe of posers in the House?

  13. I think dogpile SCHIFF would look better in an ORANGE jumpsuit when he is FINALLY in PRISON for SEDITION and TREASON as per the U.S. Constitution, Section 3 Article 3. Oh, and DON’T forget Senile “The Lush” Nancy Pelosi and NUTTY Jerry Nadler. They would all be very “COMFY” together in the SAME PRISON cell. Team Trump and his allies 2020.
