Ken Starr Criticizes Pelosi's Abuse of Power and Says It May Result In the Senate Doing This...
Democrats have pushed their hardest to get President Trump impeached, probably too hard. Now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is pushing it even faster.
On Thursday, Pelosi announced that she was calling for Chairman Nadler to proceed with articles of impeachment.
"Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders, and a heart full of love for America, today I am asking our chairmen to proceed with articles of impeachment," Pelosi said.
We're not buying it Nancy! Democrats have been calling for his removal from office before he even set foot in the building.
Ken Starr who was the former special prosecutor for the Clinton impeachment made an appearance on The Brian Kilmeade Show to speak on Pelosi's decision and admitted that he was shocked at her abuse of power.
"It's an outrage to seize control of the deliberate process of a committee -- [it] simply compounds a series of very, very terrible abuses," he said. "The House Judiciary committee with its incredibly rich history needs to go into... an open session and debate this."
"Where did she get this power? I am honestly surprised. Then again, why shouldn't I be surprised? Because back early in the fall, she unilaterally with no debate in the people's House says, 'we now have an impeachment inquiry.' Now she's dictating the committee to actually draft articles of impeachment? It is an abuse of power."
"Just the opposite of what we're experiencing now. A strict party-line vote," said Starr, adding that Pelosi is acting to achieve her desired political outcome.
"I think this may lead to a [Senate] motion to dismiss, which I don't favor. If the House of Representatives says we're going to impeach, then the Senate should hold a trial. But I think this may be the straw that breaks the camel's back. And that Republicans in the Senate just rise up in righteous indignation and say, 'this is absolutely unacceptable.'"
