Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are about to face a reckoning on impeachment.
The Left has quickly realized they walked head first into a political buzz saw.
And Nancy Pelosi is about to announce an impeachment surrender that will humiliate her.
Nancy Pelosi’s decision to withhold articles of impeachment until Republicans agree to let Democrats run the Senate impeachment trial is about to blow up in the Left’s face.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell laughed at the idea that somehow preventing the start of a Senate trial put pressure on him and was content to wait Pelosi out.
Now that Congress is retuning, POLITICO reports Pelosi is prepared to cave in and send the articles of impeachment only to get nothing in return.
POLITICO Playbook reported:
For the immediate future, PELOSI will be the most closely watched of the four. Even though she’s widely expected to send the impeachment articles to the Senate this week — thereby starting the trial — no one has any idea what she’s going to do because she has not made her intentions clear. The speaker’s office said no decision has been made on when she will send the articles. One thing that is clear is that she doesn’t have a ton of leverage, because Senate Majority Leader MITCH MCCONNELL doesn’t tend to give into pressure almost ever. So, how she gets out of this situation will be interesting to see.
STILL, DEMOCRATS close to Pelosi believe the “delay” has been successful. They point to TRUMP’S erratic behavior on Twitter and the daylight between some of the president’s allies and MCCONNELL over the push to change Senate rules to begin the trial without the House’s articles. These Democrats also say they believe they’ve gotten traction spotlighting the issue of fairness in the trial, something Rep. ADAM SCHIFF (D-Calif.) pushed over the weekend and that Democrats will continue talking about this week.
This means a Senate impeachment trial will start in short order.
And the outcome is not in doubt.
Senate Republicans will unanimously vote to acquit President Trump and anywhere from one to three Democrats are expected to join them.
