Trump Nails Reason Pelosi Is Withholding Articles Of Impeachment

President Trump tweeted: "The Democrats will do anything to avoid a trial in the Senate in order to protect Sleepy Joe Biden, and expose the millions and millions of dollars that 'Where's' Hunter, & possibly Joe, were paid by companies and countries for doing NOTHING. Joe wants no part of this mess!"

Impeachment Trial: What Should Trump And McConnell Do?

The President's desire to have his day in court lines up with the thinking of many grassroots Trump supporters who want to see witnesses like Joe Biden, Biden’s son Hunter, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and fake “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella all called and flayed alive on TV. But given the reluctance of Senate leaders to create the potential for the trial turning into a televised circus, it seems unlikely that will happen.

Nancy Pelosi has no leverage on impeachment and will fold

Matt Mackowiak, Washington Times

Mrs. Pelosi may understand the House, but this unforced error has proven that she does not understand the Senate. She faces two bad options in the new year. She can fold and gain no concessions from Mr. McConnell or she can effectively prevent the Senate from ever holding a trial. In the latter case, Mr. McConnell may well hold an acquittal vote in the Senate, which would require 51 votes. Mrs. Pelosi has a weak hand and decided to bluff. Mr. McConnell then called the bluff. In early January, the cards will be turned over and the pot will be awarded. This was all entirely foreseeable. How did the “brilliant tactician” Pelosi so badly misjudge this situation?

Clinton's Impeachment Was Dignified

Karl Rove, Wall Street Journal

Mrs. Pelosi wants to hurry up and wait. She’s content to let this national security “threat” linger in the Oval Office until she gets her way. Ordinary Americans, especially swing voters who will decide the 2020 contest, appear to be losing interest. It’s not only because of the holidays. Washington is always infected with some amount of tomfoolery, but Mrs. Pelosi and the Democratic impeachment tactics have heavily taxed the tolerance of everyday Americans. Americans deserve a dignified conclusion to impeachment, as the Senate gave them with Mr. Clinton. Impeachment always inflicts trauma on the nation. We can accept that. What the country shouldn’t accept is a continuation of this Democrat-led circus.

As Pelosi plays games with impeachment, what next for GOP?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Pelosi is withholding the articles of impeachment. It is unclear how long she will do it, but it seems they will be withheld at least until Jan. 7. That alone will delay a Senate trial significantly. (In the Clinton impeachment, the House vote was on Dec. 19, the articles were sent to the Senate the same day, and the trial began Jan. 7.) In the limbo Pelosi has created, almost anything seems possible. During the House impeachment inquiry, Republicans often complained that Democrats did not observe basic rules of fairness. Now, if there ever is a trial, the Senate Republican majority can also do what it wants. And whatever they choose, Pelosi's gamesmanship will likely make the GOP more united.

‘No Confidence!’ Pelosi Opens Door For Parliamentary System

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Due to the Speaker Nancy Pelosi-inspired impeachment of Donald Trump because they don’t like him and his policies (actually the policies are a minor part of it—it’s almost entirely him) we have our own version of the parliamentary system. By dialing impeachment down in this manner, they have actually dialed it down and out and into something different and almost always self-defeating. From now on, our presidents will be effectively prime ministers. That the impeachment is now stalled because Pelosi refuses to pass the articles to the Senate only underscores that it was never real in the first place and was indeed, as in Europe, a vote of “no confidence.”

Nancy Pelosi Is A Totalitarian Bully

As we’ve said in other columns the impeachment of President Trump demonstrates why Democrats can never, ever again be trusted with control of the federal government. Speaker Pelosi’s thuggish totalitarianism in denying the House Minority its traditional rights to speak and call witnesses is just one more frightening example of what Democrat government would look like.

President Trump’s Letter to Nancy Pelosi, Etc.

Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator

America is at a critical juncture. Donald Trump rightly understands that this isn’t really about him. President Trump will fade into the mists of former presidents just like every other former president. What will remain are the mores and standards set here, now. This all has come at a great cost. The president and the people who voted for him were robbed of their mandate. They have been subjected to harassment and vilification. The poison injected into the system by Obama (weaponizing the federal government against political enemies) has continued during Trump’s tenure. It is, in one word, evil. Democrats should fear justice in this impeachment case. It won’t end well for them.

Gohmert – Nadler Clash A Metaphor For Everything Wrong About Impeachment

The clash between Gohmert and Nadler was a fitting metaphor for the Democrats’ entire impeachment fantasy in which any facts that conflicted with or brought into question their carefully constructed narrative and carefully tailored record were dismissed as “Russian propaganda.”

Mitch McConnell Sets Up Democrat Impeachment Managers For Days Of Public Humiliation

Given the weakness of the record tailored by House Democrats in their impeachment “investigation,” Mitch McConnell telling Democrats they are stuck with the record as it stands as the basis for the presentation of their case to the Senate sets up days of well-deserved public humiliation for the House Democrats selected as impeachment managers.

Poll After Poll Finds Democrats Underwater On Impeachment

When more voters oppose a candidate or issue than support it, we say the candidate or issue is “underwater” and when even CNN finds more Americans oppose impeachment than support it Democrats are not just underwater, they are drowning.

President Trump’s Fiery Letter To Pelosi Shreds Impeachment Case

In a powerful letter addressed to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President Trump shredded the Democrats’ case for impeaching him and laid bare the anti-constitutional, anti-American process by which Democrats arrived at their two articles of impeachment.

Call These Vulnerable Democrats, Tell Them To Vote NO On Impeachment

There are 31 Democrat members of Congress who represent districts that President Trump carried in 2016. That includes 13 districts where the President defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 6 points. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call these 31 Democrats now to stop the unfair and unfounded impeachment of President Trump.

The Democrats’ impeachment announcement was sad, pathetic and weird

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

A few Dems in the House will vote no but the articles will pass — and the partisan assassination attempt will die in the Senate. How long the trial would take depends largely on how many witnesses are called, and most in the GOP seem to want to keep the trial as short as possible. Trump, however, has said he wants to call the Bidens, Schiff and the whistleblower, basically to put the Dems on trial. That conflict is something the White House and Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have to resolve. In either case, it’s likely that by the time of the Iowa caucus, the failed putsch will seem like ancient history. That’s weird, too, and yet, these days, par for the course.

The Most Corrupt, Partisan, Vindictive, Unjust Impeachment In American History

Based on Democrat standards of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ nearly every previous American president could have been impeached and removed from office, beginning with George Washington. But what's even worse is in order to tailor the record to justify impeachment, Democrats have constructed a narrative based on lying, leaking, and misleading the American people to advance their political agenda.

Democrats Tailoring The Record To Justify Impeachment

Bottom line: In order to tailor the record to justify their impeachment narrative, Democrats are refusing to release all the information they have, while dumping cherry-picked documents at the last minute. This only continues the unprecedented and unfair way in which Democrats have conducted this impeachment process – lying, leaking, and misleading the American people to advance their political agenda.

Nancy Pelosi's hostage video

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Yes, it was a hostage video of a woman who has been hijacked by some ruinous left-wing nutjobs in her party. But it was also a woman who has lost grip on reality. President Trump calls her “nervous Nancy.” But, in truth, it is so much worse. She has slipped into a historical coma and become Nancy the doddering docent, showing off a colonial village with fake snow at Christmastime who is unable to step out of her character, talking about the monarchy and the fresh Declaration and the coming Revolution. Not only is Mrs. Pelosi a rank liar, she has zero grip on the Constitution and a fast diminishing relationship with reality. But, rest assured, Nancy Pelosi is there to save the Republic.

What Impeachment Tells Us A Democrat-Controlled America Would Look Like

Donald Trump is merely the most high-profile victim of the Democrats’ urge to criminalize political diversity. If YOU disagree with Democrats on religious liberty, border security, housing policy, foreign policy, the homeless, or anything else, you represent a threat to the Party and the State. And if there isn’t a crime that fits, what the impeachment of President Trump proves is that Democrats will tailor one especially for you.

Pelosi Promotes Good Stewardship of God's Creation (and Abortion)

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

Nancy Pelosi issued three public statements while attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The first and third profoundly contradicted the second — in a way that can never be reconciled. First, Pelosi concluded that we have a "moral responsibility to be good stewards" of "God's creation." Second, Pelosi issued a press release announcing that she had submitted an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in the case of June Medical Services LLC v. Gee (on abortion being a fundamental right). Pelosi then turned back to the cause of protecting God's creation through climate action. Declaring the murder of unborn children a "fundamental right" can never be considered good stewardship of God's creation.

Senator Graham Must Bring Schiff’s Reign Of Terror To An End

We urge CHQ readers and friends of civil liberties of whatever political stripe to call Senator Lindsey Graham, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), tell him that Americans of all political views are outraged at Democrat Adam Schiff’s use of warrantless subpoenas to obtain the phone records of private citizens and you demand an immediate investigation of Schiff and action to ensure it can never happen again.
