House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was distraught.
Pelosi and her Democrat allies chose a course of action on impeachment that liberals hoped would end with the Trump Presidency left in shambles.
Instead Nancy Pelosi just waved the white flag after this humiliating defeat.
Nancy Pelosi thrilled liberal activists and fake news reporters when she withheld articles of impeachment delaying the start of a Senate trial.
Pelosi tried to blackmail Republicans putting Chuck Schumer in charge of the Senate impeachment trial.
However, Pelosi made one major miscalculation: Mitch McConnell was more than happy not to have Republicans running for re-election in swing states take any impeachment votes so he was more than happy to put a trial on ice.
Instead, the pressure was put on Pelosi.
Missouri Republican Josh Hawley introduced a resolution to dismiss the impeachment charges due to the Democrats refusing to present a case.
Pelosi admitted defeat in the face of this twin reality.
The Speaker leaked word to her minions at the Washington, D.C. swamp gossip website POLITICO that she was going to cave.
POLITICO Playbook exclusively reported:
For the immediate future, PELOSI will be the most closely watched of the four. Even though she’s widely expected to send the impeachment articles to the Senate this week — thereby starting the trial — no one has any idea what she’s going to do because she has not made her intentions clear. The speaker’s office said no decision has been made on when she will send the articles. One thing that is clear is that she doesn’t have a ton of leverage, because Senate Majority Leader MITCH MCCONNELL doesn’t tend to give into pressure almost ever. So, how she gets out of this situation will be interesting to see.
STILL, DEMOCRATS close to Pelosi believe the “delay” has been successful. They point to TRUMP’S erratic behavior on Twitter and the daylight between some of the president’s allies and MCCONNELL over the push to change Senate rules to begin the trial without the House’s articles. These Democrats also say they believe they’ve gotten traction spotlighting the issue of fairness in the trial, something Rep. ADAM SCHIFF (D-Calif.) pushed over the weekend and that Democrats will continue talking about this week.
POLITICO dutifully reported the spin from Democrats that Pelosi supposedly “got in the President’s head” over impeachment as a clear and convincing victory.
This laughable spin fell apart on even the closest examination.
Democrats rushed through an impeachment inquiry in the House where they refused to pursue court fights over their ability to compel certain witness testimony because they deemed Donald Trump an urgent threat to the Republic.
But Pelosi undermined that argument and rendered impeachment a job by sitting on the articles of impeachment for over two weeks.
And now the gambit ends with a humiliating admission of defeat the fake news media failed to spin as a victory.
