REP. McCARTHY: Even Democrats Have ‘No Idea’ What Nancy Pelosi is Doing on Impeachment

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.09.20

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to transmit the Articles of Impeachment to the US Senate Thursday; saying even members of her own party have no idea what she’s doing.

“Let’s talk about impeachment. If you listen, even lawmakers in Speaker Pelosi’s own Party have no idea what she’s doing. Senator Feinstein, her hometown Senator for Nancy Pelosi, said the longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes, “ said McCarthy.

 

Senator Dianne Feinstein urged Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to end her political stunt regarding the Articles of Impeachment Wednesday; telling the top Democrat to send the documents to the US Senate if it’s truly “serious and urgent.”

“Time plays an unknown role in all of this, and the longer it goes on, the less the urgency becomes. So if it’s serious and urgent, it should come over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over,” said Feinstein.

“I’m not a big fan of impeachment but I think there’s enough to take a good look, and we should,” she said.

 

“I think it needs to start. I really do,” said Sen. Joe Manchin. “Let us do what we have to do over here.”

“I think the time has passed. She should send the articles over,” added Sen. Chris Murphy.

ANOTHER EXCUSE: Cory Booker Says Senate Impeachment Trial Could Cost Him Iowa Caucus

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.09.20

Failing presidential candidate Cory Booker weighed-in this week on a potential Impeachment trial in the US Senate; saying the proceedings could potentially cost him the Iowa Caucus and other contests.

“If this trial lasts two weeks, that is literally dozens of events we won’t be able to do,” Booker said.

“It’s going to be a challenging four weeks in the caucus for us,” Booker said during a recent podcast. “If we can’t raise more money in this final stretch, we won’t be able to do the things that other campaigns with more money can do to show presence.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under growing pressure from Congressional lawmakers to finally transmit her Articles of Impeachment to the US Senate.

“I understand what the speaker is trying to do, basically trying to use the leverage of that to work with Democratic and Republican senators to try to get a reasonable trial, a trial that would actually show evidence, bring out witnesses,” Rep. Adam Smith told CNN. “But at the end of the day, just like we control it in the House, Mitch McConnell controls it in the Senate.”

“I think it was perfectly advisable for the speaker to try to leverage that to get a better deal,” he continued. “At this point, it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. And yes, I think it is time to send the impeachment to the Senate and let Mitch McConnell be responsible for the fairness of the trial. He ultimately is.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein urged Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to end her political stunt regarding the Articles of Impeachment Wednesday; telling the top Democrat to send the documents to the US Senate if it’s truly “serious and urgent.”

BREAKING NOW: Nancy Pelosi Asks House Judiciary Committee to Proceed with Articles of Impeachment

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.05.19

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Thursday she will ask the House Judiciary Committee to draft Articles of Impeachment against President Trump; saying he has “left us no choice but to act.”

“Today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment,” said the Speaker.

“The president’s actions have seriously violated the Constitution,” she said. “His wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution.”


“If we cannot impeach a president who abuses his office for personal advantage, we no longer live in a democracy—we live in a monarchy, or we live under a dictatorship,” Harvard Law professor Noah Feldman said during Congressional hearings earlier this week.
