Nancy Pelosi’s little game is finally coming to an end.
After weeks of stalling, she said on Friday that she will finally deliver the House’s articles of impeachment to the Senate.
FOX News reports:
Pelosi: House will move to transmit impeachment articles next week
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she will take steps next week to send impeachment articles to the Senate, after delaying the process since last month in a bid to extract favorable terms for a trial.
“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. I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote in a letter to colleagues.
The decision to release the articles came as fellow Democrats in recent days had started to voice frustration and impatience with the speaker’s approach. They stressed the urgency with which impeachment was treated at the end of 2019 and questioned why the House would then delay a trial by using articles as leverage.
Asked about Pelosi’s decision to move forward on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said: “About time.”
People on the left thought Pelosi had some grand strategy at play here. She didn’t.
Trump: "Nancy Pelosi will go down as probably the least successful Speaker of the House in the history of our nation."
Trump is ending her career.
