House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on the run.
Democrats overplayed their hand big time on impeachment.
And now Trey Gowdy shut down Nancy Pelosi by asking this question.
Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on Fox News to discuss Nancy Pelosi’s desperate move to withhold sending articles of impeachment to the Senate to try and strong arm Senate Republicans into letting Democrats run the trial and deny President Trump due process.
Gowdy mocked Pelosi’s strategy and pointed out one crucial flaw – Democrats claimed they needed to impeach Donald Trump immediately because of the threat he posed to the nation.
If that were true, Gowdy questioned why Democrats would delay sending over articles of impeachment.
Fox News reports:
Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy told Fox News Monday that he thinks “most people are smart enough” to see through House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s move to withhold the articles of impeachment against President Trump from the Senate.
“If he [Trump] really is an existential threat to the republic, if he really has committed conduct that should result in his removal from office, then why would you not go ahead and send it on to the Senate?” Gowdy, the former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, asked on “The Daily Briefing.”
“The Constitution gives the House no role in deciding how this trial takes place,” Gowdy told host Dana Perino.
“It is exclusively within the providence of the Senate. I think most of my fellow citizens will see through this ‘let’s hurry up and impeach him and then sit on the indictment for god knows how long.’ I think most people are smart enough to see through that.”
Deep down, Democrats understand the case for impeachment Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler put together is pathetically weak.
That’s why Pelosi is holding impeachment hostage in a desperate attempt to force the Republican-controlled Senate to call witnesses who Democrats were unwilling to fight legal battles to compel their testimony.
The polls turning against impeachment are proof of what Trey Gowdy said – the American people see through this partisan nonsense.
