President Trump became the first president impeached in a completely partisan manner this week, but for some reason House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t send over the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell thinks that perhaps she’s too scared, and believes even she knows this whole rush to get impeachment passed was nothing more than a hit-job.
While speaking on the House floor (a step down for a Senator) McConnell didn’t bite his tongue (which is still pretty mild compared to most people).
“She’s failed the country,” McConnell said.
“It was like the speaker called up Chairman Nadler and ordered up ‘One impeachment, rushed delivery, please’… Their slapdash process has concluded in the first purely partisan presidential impeachment since the wake of the Civil War.”
McConnell then pointed to how Democrats have been looking for any reason to impeach the president elected by the American people. “They tried to impeach President Trump for being impolite to the press,” he said. “For being mean to professional athletes, for changing President Obama’s policy on transgender people in the military.”
At this point McConnell can barely hold back his laughter. He can’t believe the words he is saying because he never thought Democrats would actually be this stupid. He’s got them by the balls, and he knows it. The Democrats are sprinting towards their own demise, and they don’t seem to know it.
“All of these things were high crimes and misdemeanors, according to the Democrats.”
The Senate Majority Leader went on to say that “scores and scores” of Democrats supported the effort to move impeachment forward, wanting the American people to know that every last one of them is responsible for what the country is being dragged through. “Let’s be clear, the House’s vote yesterday was not some ‘neutral judgement’ that Democrats came to with great reluctance.”
He’s absolutely right. Nancy Pelosi lies when she says that this is a “somber occasion” for Democrats. They didn’t “prayerfully” think about this. Impeachment has been the goal from the beginning. That’s why you have people like Rashida Tlaib dancing in the hallway on her way to vote:
Who remembers when Rashida Tlaib blamed 'white supremacy' for the Jersey City shooting? She seemed like an impartial juror to decide impeachment. 🙄 pic.twitter.com/M4u73keMCu — Tim Xeriland (@Xeriland) December 19, 2019
McConnell believes that Speaker Pelosi knows the case is weak, and said perhaps “House Democrats may be too afraid to even transmit their shoddy work product to the Senate,” referring to Pelosi’s refusal to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
“The Do Nothing Party want to Do Nothing with the Articles & not deliver them to the Senate, but it’s Senate’s call.” -President Trump
Watch for yourself:
Nancy Pelosi says that she will not send the articles of impeachment to the Senate until McConnell gives in to the demands of Senate Democrats. This is interesting because if Democrats claim to have enough evidence to impeach the president, they shouldn’t need special treatment in the Senate. Their report should be enough, but we all know that it’s not.
Democrats need this to go on, because as it stands they don’t have a single candidate that could beat Donald Trump. The problem for them is that they are only making Trump’s re-election bid stronger when they continue to focus on his removal, and not working for the American people.
