Is Nancy Pelosi playing political games (again)? She got the House to vote on a rushed, uninvestigated charge of impeachment against Donald Trump.
Many said she did not have time to get proper evidence of their accusation. Others say that the Senate won’t even be able to vote on the charge after Trump leaves office.
From Fox News:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after overseeing the impeachment of Trump… has yet to send the article of impeachment to the Senate.
Pelosi did not answer questions during a Friday press conference on when she would send over the article. Her office also did not immediately respond to a message from Fox News on Monday morning asking when she would send the article.
Perhaps she thinks McConnell would immediately dismiss it. So, she’s waiting until Schumer becomes majority leader.
That won’t happen until after Trump is gone, raising more questions. Can the Senate charge a former president of impeachment? What’s the point of that?
The last time she impeached Trump, Pelosi sat on the articles for weeks. Some wondered if she was doing that for political reasons.
It didn’t go to the Senate until late January 2020, distracting from the chance Congress could act on this little-known virus… called coronavirus.
But legal experts challenge the idea of prosecuting a president after he’s out of office.
Does Pelosi finally realize she’s up a creek without a paddle? Or is she continuing to just play games with our country’s future?
