Into the new year and new decade are the Democrats’ continued schemes and games when it comes to the impeachment process. In December, leftist House members rushed the thinnest and weakest impeachment through their chamber. Despite the bipartisan opposition against both articles, Democrats persisted anyway.
Since the House has conducted its vote, now the Senate must hold a trial. The catch, however, is that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to sit on the articles, rather than hand them over to the Senate. Some people have stated that Pelosi fears the inevitable exoneration of Trump which will occur after a trial; others hypothesized that the Speaker believes holding onto impeachment articles will sway more moderate GOP senators.
Either way, Pelosi isn’t doing herself or the Democrats any favors. On Thursday, Republican senator Marco Rubio called out the Speaker via Twitter; he also hit House Democrats as a collective for “playing stupid games.”
Rubio on Impeachment and Democrats’ Games
In his tweet, the senator noted that the basis of House Democrats’ vote on the impeachment articles pertained to testimonies in their chamber.
As such, Rubio explained that if Pelosi ever decides to send the articles over to the Senate, then a trial will take place; however, Rubio also pointed out that the Senate is under no mandate to “go beyond” the witnesses which House Democrats chose to use as their basis for voting.
The conservative senator’s tweet comes after weeks of Pelosi dragging her feet, stalling, and attempting to make demands.
Not only does the House Speaker have zero power in the Senate, but conservatives are also urging Mitch McConnell and other GOP senators to remain firm. Pelosi’s clear agenda of manipulating the Senate into conducting a trial in her desired manner goes beyond being improper. It’s a blatant abuse of power and a quid-pro-quo, something which House Democrats ironically accused the president of.
The Price to Pay
Congressional elections are coming up later this year; House Democrats may currently believe what they’re doing is all fun and games, but when they lose seats and their majority, perhaps they’ll have a different outlook.
Pelosi was never truly serious about impeachment and neither were House Democrats who pretended to be and talked about the importance of removing Trump from office. They just wanted to rile up their socialist base of deluded supporters with phony outrage.
If the left were as serious about impeachment as they claim to be, if Democrats truly viewed this president as a lawless, dangerous crook, they’d have turned over impeachment articles to the Senate last decade.
