And now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is saying that even though the two weak articles of impeachment were approved on a near party-line vote on Wednesday, she won’t pass them along to the Senate until, well, until she feels like it.
Then why the rush? Why push through two thin articles that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calls “constitutionally incoherent”? If she’s just going to wait now, why the rush?
Pelosi said she may delay the handoff of the articles because she thinks Republicans in the Senate won’t hold a fair trial.
“We cannot name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side,” Pelosi told reporters after the part-line vote in the House. “And I would hope that that will be soon. … So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us. So hopefully it will be fair. And when we see what that is, we’ll send our managers.”
