Pelosi Bashes The Senate For Refusing To Bend To Her Will
The House Dems are still refusing to turn over the articles of impeachment over to the Senate. They think they are going to force the Senate to give the articles of impeachment a fair shot when it is clearly an impeachment based on emotion, not evidence. Pelosi released a statement, angry that the Senate was refusing to act "in a manner worthy of the constitution," as if the Dems were somehow unbiased with all of their Trump hate.
“In December, the House upheld its Constitutional duty to defend democracy For The People, honoring the vision of our Founders for a Republic. In an impeachment trial, every U.S. Senator is required to take an oath to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws.’
“For several months, the House has subpoenaed documents and witnesses which the President stonewalled. These cases are now in the courts. While the House nevertheless was able to obtain compelling evidence of impeachable conduct, Leader McConnell knows full well that the President’s obstruction of the House impeachment inquiry is unprecedented and in defiance of our system of checks and balances.
“Today, Leader McConnell made clear that he will feebly comply with President Trump’s cover-up of his abuses of power and be an accomplice to that cover-up.
“Leader McConnell is doubling down on his violation of his oath, even after the exposure of new, deeply incriminating documents this week which provide further evidence of what we know: President Trump abused the power of his office for personal, political gain.
“The American people deserve the truth. Every Senator now faces a choice: to be loyal to the President or the Constitution. The GOP Senate must immediately proceed in a manner worthy of the Constitution and in light of the gravity of the President’s unprecedented abuses. No one is above the law, not even the President.”
This whole thing is just ridiculous. The Dems acted the same way when Clinton was impeached. They all came forward with their biases, even Schumer claimed he was biased and not a juror. But now that it's Trump the Dems feel that this impeachment should be treated differently. McConnell has already responded claiming that the Dems acted rashly and didn't have the evidence to get a single House Republican to vote for impeachment. So this is really on the House Dems, as they forced through this evidence lacking case, hoping they could bully the Senate into finding a reason why it should stick. If the evidence is not there, then they should just throw it out like the unfounded, rage-based case it is.
