Nancy Pelosi’s Hits the Breaks on the Push to Impeachment
I could have told you that this was going to happen before it even started.
It looks like the impeachment is going to go absolutely nowhere. At this point, it’s too late to really do anything because you can’t impeach a private citizen.
From the best information that I have seen, Nancy Pelosi hasn’t delivered the article of impeachment to the Senate.
I did read an article from the New York Times that said she did, but that’s the only instance I’ve seen of it and I’ve seen multiple other sources that say that she hasn’t.
The whole thing was just a political game. It’s a charade and a fascade that’s meant to make President Trump look bad and the Democrats look “good”.
On Monday, efforts to impeach Donald Trump have hit a dead end after the senate declared that it “won’t whip votes”. The Democrats wanted to impeach the sitting president for inciting supporters to launch riots in the US Capitol. But with only two days left to the end of his term, the senate sees no reason to hurry.
For a successful impeachment, 17 Republicans must join the 50 Democrats to achieve the two-thirds vote. Again, Congress that was overseeing the process is yet to send the article of impeachment to the Senate. Not to mention, the president-elect has to confirm the important nominees. And this could be the reason why Pelosi is yet to send the article.
“The Senate, once it gets the article, will be legally required to start a trial forthwith,” Fox News continued. “This would take up much of the body’s calendar even as President-elect Joe Biden will need it to confirm some of his most important nominees. This could be a reason why Pelosi has not sent over the article — to give Schumer time to confirm some Biden nominees or pass some legislation before a trial starts.”
An impeachment could mean taking too much calendar of Joe Biden. However, a successful conviction could mean that President Trump cannot become President again.
Joe Biden has also expressed concerns that impeachment could mean losing precious time to concentrate on his agenda. Keep in mind there are only 18 months to the next election.
