Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi feigned a victory in the impeachment on Wednesday as she finally prepared to send articles of impeachment over to the Senate. Gloating to reporters, she repeatedly described the indictment by the House as a permanent mark on Donald Trump’s presidency no matter what happens in the future.
“He’s been impeached forever. They can never erase that,” Pelosi said at a press conference.
While President Trump is expected to be acquitted in the GOP-led Senate, Pelosi still continued to push her agenda and it appeared that the only thing the Speaker really cared about is that Trump’s name and reputation will forever be tarnished.
The articles of impeachment were passed by the Democrat-led House on Dec. 18 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. This makes President Trump the third president in history to be impeached by the House.
Because the Republican Party holds a solid majority in the Senate, where impeachment trials are held, there is little chance that Trump will be removed from office — especially if no new evidence is presented. But that doesn’t matter to Democratic leadership, apparently. According to Pelosi, Trump has already been held accountable because the House voted for “an impeachment that will last forever.”
Trump struck back at Pelosi just moments later, calling the effort “another Con Job by the Do-Nothing Democrats.”
The articles of impeachment allege that the president pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens, his political rivals, to influence the 2020 presidential election. He was also accused of blocking the House from conducting oversight. Even though the witnesses the House called produced no evidence, and the transcripts of the telephone call to Ukraine’s president was released with no incriminating evidence against the president, the Democrats continued their costly ‘witch hunt’ in an effort to end Trump’s presidency.
President Trump has continued to fight back against the unjust charges, and has given us a transcript of the telephone call. The president has plenty of GOP allies in the Senate who agree that his behavior is not impeachable, who have continuously blasted Democrats for such a political action aimed only at ruining Trump’s reputation, removing him from office, and undoing the results of the 2016 election.
Apparently though, the Senate trial does not make a difference at all to the House Democrats, as their delusional leader keeps repeating the sentiment, “No matter what the Senate does. He’s impeached forever because he violated our Constitution.”
And again Pelosi repeated her redundant messages on ‘This Week with George Stephanopoulos’ on Sunday. “This president is impeached for life, regardless of any gamesmanship on the part of Mitch McConnell,” she said. “He will be impeached forever.”
The trial is expected to begin Thursday. Chief Justice John Roberts is set to arrive at the Capitol and swear in the senators for the impeachment trial, with opening statements from the House managers being scheduled to begin next week.
