At one time, Nancy Pelosi may have had it together but he is clearly off the rails in an absolutely tragic way.
She’s like a guy I knew back home. When he was younger he was one of the sharpest guys you would ever meet, almost a human calculator.
One day, he got in this really bad car accident and he was in a coma for a few days. When he woke up, he could function relatively normal but there was some edge off the blade to be generous. The poor guy wasn’t the same again.
Pelosi has been chasing the impeachment pipe dream for so long that she has forgotten what her job is supposed to be. It’s one thing to disagree with the President, and people should from time to time on things that make sense.
However, if Nancy Pelosi found out that Donald and Melania let Barron have an apple at three in the afternoon on a Saturday as a snack, she would find a way to make a big deal out of that.
Nancy Pelosi was hoping to hold onto the articles of impeachment as a way to manipulate GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The Speaker made it clear she wanted McConnell to commit to calling additional witnesses in the trial as a way to bolster the Democrats’ extremely weak case against President Donald Trump. Well, poor Pelosi just lost her battle. You don’t want to miss this.
Nancy Pelosi just lost the war of impeachment and has announced she is sending the articles over to the Senate. Nancy is upset about this development, and she is pretending to be a victim of big bad Mitch McConnell. The Speaker penned a letter filled with sour grapes as she tried to make excuses for why she attempted to hold onto the articles for over a month.
“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,” Pelosi wrote in the letter.
As some Democrats balked at Pelosi folding, her own chief of staff made it clear —it’s true— the jig is up. “Helps to read the letter. Letter clearly states articles will go over next week,” tweeted Drew Hammill.

Mitch McConnell announced the trial will start sometime next week, according to Politico: “McConnell (R-Ky.) plans to begin the trial with arguments from Trump’s counsel and the House impeachment managers, and make decisions on witnesses later.”
Pelosi then trashed Mitch McConnell claiming he doesn’t want a fair trial.
McConnell signed onto a Senate GOP resolution to change the chamber’s rules and dismiss Trump’s impeachment if House Democrats didn’t transmit the articles within a certain timeframe, further underscoring he had no intentions of honoring Pelosi’s wishes.
“Yesterday, [McConnell] showed his true colors and made his intentions to stonewall a fair trial even clearer by signing on to a resolution that would dismiss the charges,” Pelosi added in her letter.
“Since then, the Speaker has elected not to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate in an unusual attempt to pressure the Republican-led chamber to guarantee it would compel additional witnesses and documents,” New York Times reports.
