Former Bush Aide Thinks He Knows Why Pelosi Is Holding Up Impeachment Articles From the Senate, and It Totally Makes Sense
The House of Representatives officially impeached President Donald Trump a week before the Christmas holiday.
The trial is expected to head to the Senate, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is holding off on delivering the official articles of impeachment to the Republican-dominated Senate until a fair trial can be guaranteed.
Pelosi's apprehension as to whether Senate Republicans will uphold the oath of impartiality the Constitution mandates before the trial of a President isn't without basis.
Senator and steadfast Trump ally Lindsey Graham (R-CA) scoffed at the idea that he'd be considered an impartial juror. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even said he'd be taking instructions from the White House on how to conduct it.
While concerns for a fair trial no doubt play a part in Pelosi's decision, some Republican strategists are speculating a possible, secondary motive for withholding the articles—and it all comes down to February 4.
