Trey Gowdy sent Nancy Pelosi running for her life with this reality check
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are desperate.
The impeachment witch hunt is backfiring and Pelosi just made things worse.
And now Trey Gowdy sent Nancy Pelosi running for her life with this reality check.
Nancy Pelosi is withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate to prevent the start of a trial in a last ditch effort to pressure Senate Republicans to allow the Democrats to run the trial by dictating the witness list.
But in an interview on Fox News, Gowdy revealed Pelosi’s true motives for this maneuver.
Gowdy explained that Pelosi knew the outcome of a Senate trial wasn’t in doubt – a bipartisan majority will exonerate the President – but that Pelosi wanted to put pressure on swing state Republicans running for re-election in 2020.
Fox News reports:
Gowdy also commented on the impeachment trial and the argument for a fair trial, saying for the most part Democrats have made up their minds on how they will vote.
“I can think of maybe six, maybe six that a full-blown trial with witnesses and exhibits might move one way or the other,” Gowdy said. “But the other 94 there are going to vote the same way, whether the trials today or whether it’s a year from now.”
The former congressman also criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holding onto the articles of impeachment and theorized it was an effort to hurt a group of Republican senators.
“This is about putting a handful of Republican senators in tight spots in November, Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis and Susan Collins and Martha McSally. Put them in tight spots, make them cast difficult votes,” he said.
But Pelosi’s strategy will backfire.
Polls show impeachment is less popular in swing states than in American overall.
Republicans running in purple states are more than safe voting with the President and against Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s partisan witch hunt.
