Pelosi Signals Articles of Impeachment Bound for Senate Next Week
WASHINGTON (Courthouse News) – Touting powerful evidence from what has been a three-week hold on the start of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled Friday that she would end the tactic.
“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate,” Pelosi said in a letter to Democratic colleagues.
The California congresswoman added that she would have more information about how to proceed in the Democrats’ caucus meeting on Tuesday.
While the three-week postponement brought criticism from Republicans — and some Democrats — Pelosi trumpeted the tactic of holding the articles of impeachment as a success that allowed her party to gather more evidence that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would have stonewalled.
“While the House was able to obtain compelling evidence of impeachable conduct, which is enough for removal, new information has emerged,” she noted, referring to emails from the Pentagon and the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which emerged in recent weeks.
Among the trove, Pelosi cited an email with President Trump’s political appointee at OMB, Michael Duffey, who relayed a hold order on $391 million in military aid meant to help Ukraine in its hot war with Russia.
Sounds like Pelosi is caving into pressure to proceed on the Senate's terms. Still, a nice way to spin it, that it allowed the Democrats to "gather more evidence."
This properly focuses on the overwhelming evidence presented to date. The Republican counter-argument that all of Trump's actions were within his policy making authority is pathetic, though likely to be convincing to die hard Trump supporters.
Personally, I think they should have included obstruction of justice based on Mueller's report in the articles of impeachment. "Obstruction of Congress" sounds too self-serving.
