You won’t believe who just pulled the rug out from under Nancy Pelosi on impeachment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was stunned.

Her impeachment plan just blew up in her face.

And you won’t believe who just pulled the rug out from under Nancy Pelosi on impeachment.

Speaker Pelosi’s plan to withhold the articles of impeachment to pressure Senate Republicans into caving in and letting Democrats run a Senate impeachment trial fizzled.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell laughed at Pelosi’ pitiful threat and announced he had the votes within the Republican Congress to set the ground rules for a Senate trial and the House had no role in dictating procedure.

Pelosi withheld the articles for weeks during Congress’ Christmas and New Year’s recess, but once the Senate returned to Washington, D.C. it took just three days for Senate Democrats to abandon Pelosi and demand the Speaker transmit the articles.

POLITICO reports:

“The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”

Several other Senate Democrats also showed their impatience with the Democratic leaders’ strategy. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Wednesday morning that Democrats “should move on” and send the articles to the Senate, and Sen. Jon Tester of Montana said he’s “ready” for the trial to start.

“We need to get folks to testify and we need more information … but nonetheless, I’m ready,” Tester said. “I don’t know what leverage we have. It looks like the cake is already baked.”

“I respect the fact that she is concerned about the fact about whether or not there will be a fair trial. But I do think it is time to get on with it,” said Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.).

Pelosi thought the maneuver would put the pressure on the GOP.

Instead, it’s Senate Democrats that are turning the screws on Pelosi.

Do you think Pelosi will cave on impeachment?
