Why doesn't Nancy send over the Articles of Impeachment?


"There's nothing else she can do", they say.

Why doesn't she send the Articles over to the Senate immediately, so Mitch McConnell can begin the sham trial.

He will get the presentations of the House Managers and the usual defenses from the Republicans.

After that is over, and after he has twisted all the arms of his caucus to get their votes for dismissal or acquittal, then he will call the final vote.

Then it will be over.

What does she get by holding on? Perhaps nothing? But why rush the inevitable so long there is a possibility of someone coming forward to testify, such as John Bolton, or maybe someone else?

What if there is more evidence that comes out between now and the middle of the trial?

The Articles are very much open-ended. The House Managers can present all the evidence that comes out to strengthen the "Abuse of Power" and the Obstruction of Congress charges. In fact, both have already been strengthened since she has been holding the Articles.

What is the major reason people recite as reason to release the Articles immediately?

Guess she shouldn't have rushed through the impeachment sham before having all the 'evidence'.

1. **** McConnell and the pukes. Let them squirm.

They deserve everything they get for ****ing us over on our supreme court pick.

7. They don't seem to be squirming though.

Speaker Pelosi should have the house committees reopen the impeachment hearings and start packing on the new and more egregious articles.

That would get them squirming.

Endless charges and witnesses in a setting that they can control.

 :whatever:

5. She could hold on to them and say that since they are continuing (I hope) investigations, she

would rather send a more complete "package" rather than amend the Articles later.

Sorry- you already voted on the articles and passed them. That means you are done.

You don't get to have a 'do-over' because you ****ed it up. This is adult governmenting... not grade school shit.

And the republicans are still laughing.  At all the democrats, because for some strange reason you think Nancy has a plan simply because she’s not releasing this to the senate. There’s just one problem with that, they don’t care!  LOL they’re going back to business as usual.

Because she's worked her way into a box and has no way to get out of it with any sort of "victory."  The whole shampeachment has backfired - Trump up by 6% in most polls and Republicans raising record money.

Miss Nancy jumped into a Heads-Trump-Wins--Tails-Dems-Lose game, IMO: if Miss Nancy send over the articles, Trump will not be voted out; if Miss Nancy holds onto the articles, the whole Dem-driven process is exposed as unserious.

If you fill out a job application and stick it in your pocket and go home, did you apply for a job?

If you write a check for the electric bill and leave it in your checkbook, did you pay the bill?

If you vote articles of impeachment and fail to send them to the Senate, did you impeach?

I say "no" to all three.

I think those on the left are always having to reconcile real events with their worldview. "Oh, Madam Speaker wouldn't make a mistake. It's all part of the master plan! She's got 'em by the balls!"
