Newt Gingrich appeared on FOX News this week and offered a theory about why the Democrats are stalling on impeachment.
It makes perfect sense.
Gingrich suggests that they know their case is weak and that they’re hoping they can come up with something stronger.
From FOX News:
Newt Gingrich on Nancy Pelosi withholding documents: ‘They’re just buying time to see if they can create more evidence’
House Democrats do not seem very confident in the evidence they have gathered for an impeachment trial in the Senate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday.
Gingrich was referring to current Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to sit on the articles of impeachment passed last week accusing President Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for his dealings with Ukraine. Pelosi said she stopped the clock in order to pressure the Senate into agreeing to certain terms for a trial.
In an unusual press conference last Thursday, Pelosi, D-Calif., defended her decision to hold off, calling McConnell a “rogue leader.”
“They’re just buying time to see if they can create more evidence,” Gingrich told “Fox & Friends.”
“But the whole thing is pretty stupid. First of all, they’re admitting that the case they have is so weak, they don’t want to send it over to the Senate. The more they behave politically, the more they devalue the entire impeachment process.”

Gingrich has written about this on his own website:
The Democrats’ Alternative Universe Impeachment
Watching recent developments in the House Democratic Party, it is clear that the effort to impeach President Trump has nothing to do with facts or a normal process of investigation and evidence-based prosecution.
We are living through a process defined by a pro-Trump universe and an anti-Trump universe. The great economy, record-low unemployment, the conservative judges, the achievements in renewing the Space program, and a host of other positive things are occurring in the pro-Trump universe.
However, the willful avoidance of facts and evidence by left-wing media and left-wing Democrats is a sign that there is an alternative anti-Trump universe.
His analysis is outstanding, as usual.
