(Liberty Bell) – It’s not much of a stretch to call the impeachment proceedings and subsequent articles of impeachment brought against President Trump, one of the biggest examples of political farce in the country’s history. Folks like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and many of her colleagues in the House are simply trying to appease leftist voters by making it appear like they have actually attempted to boot the president.
Everyone knows that the Senate, run by Republicans, isn’t going to give him the boot. The whole thing is just for show. Not to mention the fact the Democrats had no case against Trump to begin with. The man didn’t do anything wrong. Numerous attorneys stated this pretty clearly.
Well, the hearts of leftists all across the country are going to be breaking all over again as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a new measure that would allow them to dismiss the impeachment without the articles.
Pelosi’s strategy of withholding them is backfiring.
Here’s more from The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is backing a resolution to change the Senate’s rules to allow for lawmakers to dismiss articles of impeachment against President Trump before the House sends them over.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) announced on Thursday that McConnell has signed on as a co-sponsor to the resolution, which he introduced earlier this week.
Spokesmen for McConnell didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about his support.
Changing the rules would either require a two-thirds vote or for Republicans to deploy the “nuclear” option.
The resolution would give the House 25 days to send articles of impeachment over to the Senate. After that, a senator could offer a motion to dismiss “with prejudice for failure by the House of Representatives to prosecute such articles” with a simple majority vote, according to Hawley’s proposal.
McConnell has repeatedly lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for delaying sending over the two articles of impeachment.
“This is what they have done: They have initiated one of the most grave and most unsettling processes in our Constitution and then refused to allow a resolution,” he said on Thursday.
‘The Speaker began something that she herself predicted would be ‘so divisive to the country’ … and now she is unilaterally saying it cannot move forward towards a resolution,” he added.
Perhaps Nancy Pelosi and her fellow left-wingers would have been better off spending the last three years reinvigorating their political party by moving back to the center and actually dealing with issues affecting Americans instead of pushing harder and harder to the left.
It’s pretty bad when you stand to the left of General Mao, you know. That’s how radical this particular iteration of the Democratic Party has become. They haven’t learned a thing from the 2016 election. Instead, they try and overturn a legitimate election of the people, trampling the voices of Americans in the flyover states.
Not a good strategy for winning elections.
