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.

    She’s still butthurt over Mr.Trump calling her a third rate politician, and that’s about one of the most accurate statements ever. Just look at San Francisco… This woman needs to back off the gin and back to the Betty Ford Clinic and get some different denture cream…She’s Done…

    So, do you think what went on in the House was right? There was no fairness at all in that whole process. You could see the hatred coming through the TV. It was a damn shame. I’m sick of it all. Let’s move on.

    Not only did Pelosi lose, but pencilneck Schiff, dumb ass Schumer and the rest of the old cronies in Congress! The stupid idiots don’t know when to quit. They bit off more then they could chew when they decided to try to impeach Trump! The sad fact is they will never learn, they have tried so hard to get rid of Trump at every turn and nothing has worked for them. My opinion is, they should just GIVE IT UP cause there NEVER GOING TO WIN! They all need to get back Work doing what there suppose to be doing and stop wasting the taxes payers money on a bunch crap! To me, the Democrats are totally WORTHLESS!!!!!!!!!!!

    It only makes sense. In civil trials, the loser many times has to pay the attorney fees and costs for the prevailing party. We, the American People have been harmed by this boondoggle and the miscreants who brought it on should have to pay out of their own pockets!!

    Tom the communist is the Democratic Party and that of the New World Order that of which is Satan.

  9. Mary Johnson says:

    Tom as I said there is no impeachment without the Senate. The house voted on articles but have not sent them forward and therefore no impeachment excess. Once sent forward there will still be no impeachment because must have grounds and the House have none and even some of the Democrats on the hill know so because they voted against the vote. As for loser that would be you President Trump will be re-elected in November and now you need to except the fact President Trump is President and he is your President whether you like it or not.

    Hillary got 2+ million votes more than Trump. She got 4 million more than Trump in California. deduct the 2 million + illegal voters in California + all the other illegal voters in the Eastern sates , Washington etc. and their is no logic to these liberals hateful , destructive agenda.. Trump is a winner and will be in 2020.
    The demoRATs trying to win the primary are all horse’s asses with their idiotic program proposals.

  11. Mary Johnson says:

    She should never had caved to the squad in the first place and as for impeachment there are still no grounds and she knows it. Once it goes to Senate it is dead. Without the Senate there is no impeachment anyway. In order to impeach must be voted in house on articles and then sent to Senate not doing so and allowing the process it is not an impeachment. This way she can say she tried but the Senate would not corporate with them but she forgets she did not allow the due process to the President and she forget she does not control the Senate.

    You have said it all, excellent.

    Peelosi is one good reason why libtards should not be allowed to run for any office.

  14. D.A.N. says:

    At the point where the CJ is sworn in, he become the Presiding Officer but is limited by rules set by the Senate as to what he can/cannot do. And that can be set also during the trial by a majority vote.

  15. A B Murphy says:

    After hearing how important and urgent it was to move forward on the impeachment, there is
    no room for anybody, left-wing looney or not, to delay moving forward on the impeachment.
    I want the Senate to call witnesses and then rule on the “evidence” put forward. If it is, in fact,
    found to be non-evidence, as I believe, then take action in the courts to find the House action
    to have been unconstitutional. That would make it moot. THEN, I want to take action to
    recover the money spent out of the treasury on this political farce. The D.NC. and political
    campaign chests of Adam Sciiff, Nadler and others should be used to replace OUR money.

    Kat.
    He’s way too stupid for that just let him blow and ignore him, that’s the best way to handle people like hm.

  18. William Lockridge says:

    Yes, the “RETARDicans” (obviously you have no mentally challenged family members…well other than you, or you would know how hurtful that word is) ruined everything didn’t they. What happened they take away your welfare and food stamps and tell you to get a job? Lets see a stronger military, lower taxes, jobs out the wazoo, record high stock market, I could go on but you’re not worth wasting the time on. If you don’t like it here, hate out way of life and duly elected officials, there’s a country just to the South of us you would probably like better. Why not move there and make yourself feel better.
