McConnell Tells Pelosi, “Shut Up, Your Gamble Produced Nothing!”
Pelosi and the left are desperate to act like they have done something good holding back articles of impeachment, that somehow this will affect the outcome of voting in the Senate, McConnell was having none of it.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Monday tore into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., just days after the speaker backed down from her refusal to send the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate, calling Pelosi’s delay a “strange gambit” that “produced absolutely nothing.”
During a speech on the Senate floor, McConnell chastised Pelosi for ending what he called “her one-woman blockade” and questioned her strategy for holding off sending the articles to the Senate.
In December, the House Democrats voted in a partisan vote to impeach Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Unable to find an actionable crime, they voted strictly along partisan lines.
It was, for this reason, they voted on something as bias as abuse of power, then charged him with contempt for daring to ask the Courts to rule where the separation of powers existed, this to the Democrats was unacceptable, Pelosi and her followers think that the Courts, the Executive Branch, and the Senate are answerable to her.
Sad, turns out maybe the Democrats need a quick civics lesson, the three branches are co-equal, no one holds authority over the other.
Over the weekend, Pelosi defended the delay she caused, arguing Democrats were successful in making the case to the American people, seems she is ignoring the polling that shows support has fallen since she started this, but that does not matter to the talking heads, they nod and go along with it.
She is still demanding the Senate further carries on the trial to call in witnesses, has threatened the Senate if they won’t, then she will call them in and hold a mock impeachment trial of her own.
In a television appearance over the weekend, Pelosi defended the delay, arguing Democrats were successful in making the case to the American people that the Senate trial should include witnesses.
“What we think we accomplished in the past few weeks is that we wanted the public to see the need for witnesses,” Pelosi said during an appearance on ABC News’ “This Week.”
Pelosi also warned Sunday that senators would “pay a price” if they block new witness testimony with a trial that Americans perceive as a “cover-up” for Trump’s actions.
“It’s about a fair trial,” Pelosi said. “The senators who are thinking now about voting for witnesses or not, they will have to be accountable.”
The funny thing is, the Senate in polling as showing far more support by the American people then the House is, looks like she is all spin with no facts.
Today support among Independents and Republicans for removing Trump has fallen to just 7% of Republicans support this, 39% of independents. The only demographic that supports the removal of Trump are Democrats; they show in the poll at 81% in support.
McConnell, in his way, has shown Pelosi that she has no authority over the Senate; it was time to shut up, pass the articles to the Senate and let them do as the constitution intended to rule on the articles without any control from the House.
We at 0censor want to thank you for your patience as we switch things over to our new platform. We are expanding to provide you a better service. Our news site is going to be switching to a news feed; that way, you can access news from different sources from one place.
We did open up a new social network site, a site where conservative speech will NEVER be censored, where speech is debated, not silenced. While this is still in a BETA stage, we are working out the kinks; this should not be much longer.
We also added QandA, this is a site where you can ask questions, then look for people to answer. We will continue the policy of not silencing free speech, as we see other sites do, instead, we will open these answers to debate, the better answers will be shown at the top. This site is up and running, should be fully stocked and ready to go over the next few days!
We are looking at setting up shortly 0censor Chat; it will be a platform that will enable you to talk with your friends the same way you do with Twitter but will not have the censorship that is experienced on that site. After that, we will launch 0censor View; this will be a platform for videos. Once more, we aim to set up an open experience in one place, where you access information without the censorship we currently see by big tech.
We are excited about where we are going. If you are too, please visit us and let us and enjoy! As usual, we are open to new ideas and suggestions; please let us know your thoughts.
