I think it’s safe to say Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment has officially backfired on her.
She thought she and her House Democrats could impeach President Trump over non-crimes. Then, she wanted to hold back the articles from the Senate.
Why? So she could hold it over his head until November.
Most Americans are outraged over this, including Republicans in the Senate. She’s gone too far.
And now, Josh Hawley is taking official action.
From Daily Caller:
Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri has announced he will introduce a “measure” to dismiss the House articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
“Dems said impeachment was URGENT. Now they don’t want to have a trial, because they have no evidence. In real world, if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed. So on Monday, I will introduce measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution,” Hawley tweeted Thursday.
Boom! Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri is filing measures to dismiss the House impeachment. Whether or not Pelosi bothers to send the articles over it meaningless now.
If his measure is passed, the Senate will have the power to dismiss this case right here and now.
Hawley made a good argument over Twitter. According to the Constitution, the Senate has the sole power to try an impeachment case.
Pelosi, by breaking Constitutional rules in not sending the articles, has shown she wants to interfere with the Senate’s power. Not cool, Nance.
Based on that, the Senate has no choice but to end this charade. Hawley’s measure will amend Senate rules so they can convene on their own and dismiss the House Democrats’ frivolous impeachment.
We’ve had to sit through months of Democrats spreading their impeachment rumors. After numerous hearings—both private and public—Democrats have been unable to provide solid enough evidence that Trump should be impeached.
At the same time, Trump has been continuing to win for the American people. That has only highlighted the fact that Democrats want him gone over politics—not a crime.
After all that, Pelosi is acting like a spoiled child, refusing to finish her job in the House.
What other choice does the Senate have, than to dismiss?
Do you agree that this impeachment was a partisan hit job? Democrats rushed it through, saying it was urgent.
Yet now they sit on it? Garbage.
Hawley is on the right track. If Pelosi continues to deny Trump his fair trial, they must dismiss.
