The long-awaited Senate impeachment trial could begin as soon as next week, according to comments made by Senator Lindsey Graham and others. The Hill reported that Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell told the Republican caucus to prepare for a trial next week, saying that they should expect to stay in Washington D.C. next weekend and to be ready to work six-day weeks until the trial ends.
That is, of course if her Imperial Highness Nancy Pelosi is prepared to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate so a trial can begin. Pelosi told reporters that she is “not holding them indefinitely. I’ll send them over when I’m ready, and that will probably be soon.”
I’m sorry, but who died and made Nancy Pelosi empress? She has taken control of an entire chamber of Congress. If I was a Democrat Party member, I would be angry at her as well. She is basically telling her own caucus that she will be making all the decisions, despite the House having voted. This lady has an ego the size of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Who does she think she is?
Empress Pelosi is trying to use the articles of impeachment as leverage to force the Republicans to do her bidding in a Senate trial. If I was Mitch McConnell, I would laugh right in her face and tell her that she will be sitting on those articles indefinitely, because they won’t be doing anything she says.
It is imperative that the Senate Republicans stand strong and not do the Democrats bidding in the upcoming trial. The House Democrats are in NO position to be making demands. If they had built such a strong case during the House impeachment hearings, then why are they demanding that the Republicans call new witnesses?
The House and Senate Dems are imploring the Senate Republicans to call witnesses like John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney to testify. If they felt so strongly about calling these witnesses, then why didn’t they subpoena them and go to the court do resolve the dispute over executive privilege?
Earlier this week, Democrats were salivating at the news that former National Security Advisor John Bolton said he was willing to testify in the Senate trial. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer claims, without evidence, that Bolton will provide information that hasn’t been heard before. They think that Bolton holds the key to proving Trump is guilty. Of what? They still can’t say.
Bolton released a statement in which he said, “I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study. I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify.”
It was just two seconds ago that the Democrats hated John Bolton and said that he was a warmonger intent on destroying the world. However, now that he is willing to testify against Trump—or at least they think he is—they have suddenly found it in their heart to forgive Bolton. They might even start inviting him to cocktail hour. I wouldn’t put it past them.
Adam Schiff claims that they didn’t have time to wait around for the courts to make a ruling on the subpoena issue; it was urgent that the rogue man in the Oval Office be removed from his post. Apparently, it wasn’t that urgent, because Speaker Pelosi has been sitting on the articles of impeachment for weeks now.
If I were a Senate Republican, I would turn the tables on the Dems and call witnesses that the Democrats don’t want to be called. Call Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the whistleblower (remember him?). The Dems should be careful what they wish for.
Those men would have a spotlight on them and would be exposed for what they are: Frauds. This is an opportunity the Senate Republicans can’t afford to miss.
However, even with this opportunity, the Republican Senators might be dumb enough to screw this up. Leave it to the feckless leaders in the Senate GOP to miss a softball lobbed over the plate!
They’d better lock hands and hold strong against the Democrats’ onslaught. They think that they can bully the Republicans into doing their bidding. Unfortunately, if the past is any indication, they have good reason to believe that can be successful. Republicans have caved to the Left too many times over the years.
The days of caving to the Dems MUST end now.
This whole impeachment inquisition is a joke. The charges are meritless. None of the witnesses that testified in the Senate trial heard directly from President Trump that he wanted to withhold military funding from Ukraine unless they got “dirt” on Joe and Hunter Biden.
Trump did ask Ukrainian President Zelensky to look into the Bidens, but he had good reason to ask that the Bidens be investigated. There is credible evidence to suggest that Hunter and Joe Biden were profiting off the back of the American tax payer. Joe Biden is on record bragging about withholding funding to Ukraine unless they fired the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company.
The Republicans need to stop being wimps and grow a pair.
