Nancy Pelosi just waived the white flag of surrender on this impeachment fight

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew time was running out.

Pelosi began to face pressure from Democrats on her impeachment strategy.

And now Nancy Pelosi just waived the white flag of surrender on this impeachment fight.

Nancy Pelosi withheld articles of impeachment from the Senate until Republicans agreed to call witnesses or publically released the rules for a Senate trial.

Mitch McConnell laughed at this feeble attempt at blackmail.

McConnell announced his intention to cosponsor a resolution to dismiss the articles of impeachment unless Pelosi transmitted them by a certain date.

Faced with this reality –as well as complaining by Senate Democrats – the Speaker caved in and announced she would transmit the articles of impeachment.

POLITICO reports:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday she will send the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate next week, ending a heated standoff with Republicans over the terms of the impeachment trial.

“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.

Pelosi and the Democrats won nothing from this exchange.

Republicans made no commitment to calling witnesses and did not budge on any Democrat demands on rules or documents.

    Nancy Pelosi shouldhave nightmares for the rest lf her ddecietful, lying life. She did this because people with a stronger spine than her manipulated her into signing. She is a TRAITOR, A gigantic liar, and full of hate. How is she going to explain this to the GOD she lies about. She is just as much a swamp creature as. the entire Democratic party, every last one has no backbone, all they are worried about is re-election not the future of this country.THEN SHE IS SMILING AND LAUGHING ABOUT IT WHILE HANDING OUT PENS. Who paid for this pens?. The American People? I hope Pelosi gets rot marks on her knees praying for salvation. She is a crooked woman who DOES not care for the AMerican People.

    The way I see it, Pelosi should spend the reminder of her life in a 6 by 7 Gray/Green prison cell at the Super Max in Florence, Colorado. She needs to be tried for treason. Too bad you can’t be tried for STUPID she,d get the needle.

    McConnell should pass the article that limits delivery time and dismisses the articles for non-prosecution. They should pass it as if she never said a word because I do not trust this lying sack of worthless crap to do the right thing EVER. We know the Pelosi knew there are no just causes for impeachment, we know she stated she would impeach him even before he was sworn in as president the Dems lined up PROMISING impeachment.
    All sacks of crap, illegal, immoral and attempting to overthrow the government and the will of the PEOPLE>

    The perfidious democrats knew when the FBI, after searching every sewer in the world trying to come up with the “insurance’ to keep Trump out of the WH , that what they wished for was not there. Yet they blew 40 million $ with mueller and 18 hillary supporting lawyers who could not come up with it. The result is that the nefarious democrats have made it up and now to try to push their agenda on their lying. Is there a democrat in congress with any virtue?

  11. H Lee says:

    I can hardly wait for elections to start so I can vote against every democrat, state, local and federal. They are all rotten, prejudiced, racist, diatribe pushing , dung flinging, self idolizing, money wasting, hypocrites with no virtue.
