House Dems Get Triggered After McConnell Explains They Are Powerless.
McConnell let House Dems know that their attempt to control the Senate has failed yesterday when he announced that he "had the votes." This triggered the House Dems who are having to face the fact that they will not be able to force their will on Senate. Pelosi now demands to see what the Senate's terms are for handling the articles of impeachment. You know she is going to upset when she sees they are not going to call in witnesses unless there is adequate evidence.
"It is important that he immediately publish this resolution, so that, as I have said before, we can see the arena in which we will be participating, appoint managers and transmit the articles to the Senate," Pelosi wrote in her letter."
"Sadly, Leader McConnell has made clear that his loyalty is to the President and not the Constitution. Leader McConnell has insisted that the approach under consideration is identical to those of the Clinton trial and that 'fair is fair.' This is simply not true," Pelosi wrote. "This process is not only unfair but designed to deprive Senators and the American people of crucial documents and testimony. Under the Clinton trial, witnesses were deposed."
Senator Mitch McConnell has already told Pelosi when she will see the resolution.
"McConnell cited the Clinton impeachment proceedings earlier in the day Tuesday, saying, "We'll be glad to show [the resolution] to you when we unveil it.”
He "indicated the Senate could kick off “phase one” of Trump’s impeachment trial, after notifying Pelosi that he has a simple majority and can proceed.
“Fifty-one senators determine what we do and there will be, I’m sure, intense discussion, once we get past phase one, about the whole witness issue,” McConnell said, while also insisting that the Senate first receive the articles from the House."
It looks like the House Dems are going to be throwing a tantrum since McConnell is not letting them get their way. This whole thing is on the Dems as this isn't a bipartisan impeachment. So they clearly didn't have the evidence. The Senate should just throw these articles out considering even Legal experts have claimed there is no case here. And that is probably why Pelosi wants to micromanage it. She must know this is a dud and that it would never have made it past the House if it were not for Dem's Trump hate.
