    Game Over?

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled to congressional Democrats late Tuesday that she plans to continue to hold onto articles of impeachment against President Trump -- for now -- demanding that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell first release the resolution outlining the terms for a Senate trial.

    In a letter to colleagues, Pelosi, D-Calif., indicated she would not transmit impeachment articles to the Senate until McConnell moves to “immediately publish” the resolution while accusing him of making “misleading claims” about past impeachment processes to “justify” Republican plans.
    So, if McConnell never releases the Senate resolution, Pelosi will never transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate, thereby nullifying the the articles.

    Game over!

    What a massive attempted overstep by the Speaker of the House. Not only did she allow the kangaroo court impeachment in her chambers, she is trying to control what the Senate does. Right about now a polite "go to hell Nancy" from McConnell would be in order.

    Remember.. Pelosi wasn’t ready to impeach.. the more radical wing of her party forced her hand.. she is still in limited control .. time will tell how this plays out..

    She is playing the 2020 game.. guess I should say the November game..

    A stand off between two fools, is what we've got. This serves not a one of us. It serves them.

    But you truly do believe the President should be impeached. Please correct me if I'm wrong

    Yes, Honda.

    I do believe the President should be impeached. Now, I did not say he should be convicted - but I do think the real impact of his actions needs to be investigated. If nothing else, I hope he learns from this that there are consequences to his actions. Like many others, I'd feel more comfortable if Trump adhered to rules and laws. And, I would hope others with legislative power in our government do the same.

    Thank you for the query. You often cause me to think and re-think about my positions on these things. And, it is appreciated.

    I'd like to hear about it, Fred. What should we do better? It may be a new thread.

    The Dems blew the chance for a better investigation. They appointed two clowns (Schiff and Nadler) to run the show and they made a mockery of the process. I personally don't think they were all that serious about it. I think it was all political theatre. They knew they would never get him removed. I posted a theory about why they actually brought the impeachment written by former Rep lawmaker named Trey Gowdy. He is a Rep but he is pretty sharp. It's in the politics section if you care to take a look.
