Nancy Pelosi Refuses To Commit To Sending Articles Of Impeachment To Senate by Ctorch: 7:16am On Dec 19, 2019
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not commit on Wednesday to sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, saying in a post-impeachment-vote news conference, "That would have been our intention, but we'll see what happens over there."


Some progressives have urged Democratic leaders to withhold the articles until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, agrees to procedures for the Senate trial that Democrats have called for, as well as agreeing to bring in firsthand witnesses like acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify.

Pelosi said Democrats will make the decision "as a group" on when to send the articles to the Senate.

There are procedural concerns behind not sending the articles to the Senate on Wednesday night immediately after the votes. Among them: Democrats can't send the articles at this time because the Senate would have to take them up Thursday, blocking votes on other measures, including a spending package that must pass before week's end to avoid a government shutdown.

McConnell has openly sparred with his Democratic counterpart, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, over the format of the Senate trial. Earlier this week, McConnell rejected Schumer's call for four witnesses to testify.


In the coming days, the House must also name impeachment managers for the Senate's trial, another step Pelosi was not ready to make Wednesday night.

"We cannot name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side, and we hope that will be soon," Pelosi said. "So far we haven't seen anything that looks fair to us, so hopefully it will be fair."

McConnell told Republican senators at a policy lunch Tuesday that he will announce the date for the start of the Senate trial by the end of the week, according to sources.

It's unclear what advantages there would be to withholding the articles of impeachment from a Senate trial. When McConnell was asked this week about the possibility of articles not being sent over, he told reporters, "I'm in no hurry."

One Republican senator told CNN in a text message, "If the Speaker thinks this magically gives Democrats leverage in the Senate she hasn't been paying attention to how McConnell operates the last few decades."

I used to tell people that liberalism is a sign of mental disorder.


A Democrats dominated house of Representatives Impeached president Trump and now wants a Senate dominated Republicans to also do so.

Imagine Pelosi saying "we hope they will be fair to us"........Was she fair to Trump.

Republicans should rubbish those articles when finally Pelosi got the nerves to send them.

The Dems are truly set out to remove Trump at all cost, and having their way with the first-hand witnesses/testifiers, might just help them achieve this because Trump as fuk did cross the lines.


Watching Democracy at play from the owners of it, it became even more glaring that what we purport to be practicing in Nigeria is nothing but truly a demonstration of craze.

Where do we have the intellectuals to hold a debate, and articulate their thoughts and points as intelligently as the Reps did.

Make we jejely find our own indigenous system of government and quit with the rubbish we practice presenlty.

Right Move. Now the Senate will now have to question if they will hold a fair and impartial trial. They will also have to call multiple witnesses and i would prefer they call hunter biden and not excluding the President. But we all know who the dirty trickster is here, the serial pvssy grabber, tax evader, bankruptcy king and morally dejected insult, racist and diatribal. Without mentioning a name, you know the person

This their impeachment/removal along party line doesn't make sense. Democrats should learn from Nigerian politicians on how they could get the needed numbers
At least in Nigeria, we have seen a PDP controlled HoA impeaching a PDP governor. grin

Democrats: this is urgent. The president is an imminent threat to our democracy. If we don’t remove him now he will steal the next election.

Also Democrats; we’ll just sit on these articles of impeachment as long as we like.


Blatant political witch-hunt.

Why are Nigerian/African Christians always supporting trump.

I dont get it, is he their Lord and saviour.

Lordbricks:


Why are Nigerian/African Muslims always against trump.
I don't get it, is he Satan their enemy.

Sorry Bro i'm neither a christian nor a muslim, i'm of no religion (deist) but i've stated the obvious fact.

Most Nigerian/African christians are always quick to defend trump even when he's wrong. Which is highly irrational.

Funny thing is most of them knows that even in the US, more than half of Americans are against his government but because they are trying to protect their belief about trump. They wouldn't admit that fact.

And what is their belief? They believe that trump is the man to fight against their imaginary antichrist while they also believe that the Democratic party is a party of antichrist while Republican is the jesus party.

Every country with their corruption style, here we are wishing for impeachment of our own leaders based on corruption but there they want to get their president impeached for trying to investigate corruption of the past vice president.
