‘You’ll be the first to know’: Pelosi avoids revealing when she will send impeachment to Senate

Ahead of the first impeachment attempt against President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wound up sitting on the related articles passed by her chamber for nearly a month before sending them to the U.S. Senate so a trial could commence.

It appears that a similar situation might be repeating itself, with Pelosi thus far declining to reveal when an article of impeachment passed earlier in the week would be forward to the upper chamber.

“When we announce we’re going over there”

According to the Washington Times, reporters asked the speaker when she planned to deliver the article to the Senate, prompting her to skirt the issue.

“You’ll be the first to know when we announce we’re going over there,” she said.

For what it is worth, Fox News has reported that members of Pelosi’s Democratic caucus — including second-highest-ranking Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) — have called for the immediate delivery of the article in hopes of seeing a Senate trial get underway “as soon as possible.”

Given the impending inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, Pelosi’s timeline might be important on one hand but essentially moot on the other.

When the Senate receives the impeachment article, much of the other business in the upper chamber will largely grind to a halt until the trial has concluded, meaning potential trouble for Biden and his efforts to have his top-level nominees confirmed in an expedited manner.

“There will be an impeachment trial”

Regardless of when Pelosi decides to act, however, any decision in the Senate will not be reached until well after Trump has left office.

At some point or another, therefore, Biden’s agenda is sure to be stymied by the Senate’s business of determining whether his predecessor should be convicted of the impeachment article filed against him.

In any case, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), his party’s leader in the Senate, has made it clear that there will be a trial — whenever he finally receives the article.

“Make no mistake, there will be an impeachment trial in the United States Senate; there will be a vote on convicting the president for high crimes and misdemeanors; and if the president is convicted, there will be a vote on barring him from running again,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

For his part, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), said senators will not reconvene early in order to address the issue, stating this week: “Even if the Senate process were to begin this week and move promptly, no final verdict would be reached until after President Trump had left office. This is not a decision I am making; it is a fact. The President-elect himself stated last week that his inauguration on January 20 is the ‘quickest’ path for any change in the occupant of the presidency.”

  1. Impeach Pelosi and a few others. They were the ones inciting violence and to me that is committing high crimes. What pray tell me is the GOP doing besides nothing. I am angry with the GOP. They have sat on their hands and allowed democrats to walk all over them. They are a bunch of yellow bellied traitors to the Republican Party. Shame on them. If they don’t step up and grow a pair I will leave the republicans.

      1. For sure the rinos need to go back to their caves. Pelosi is a mentally ill old woman. She needs to be removed totally by the 25th. Term limitsxwould remedy alot of this crap.

    1. I am with you Louellen Stoner. I feel that the repubs are spineless cowards. Its time they discovered their back bones and start caring about Americas people.
      The dems are evil and just want to control us all

    2. Impeach McConnell Pelosi, the whole dirty gang off them . everyone of them insisting this, is running from something much bigger then impeachment. That’s why they’re running in circles. I wish I could tell what I ALREADY KNOW but I can’t because of trolls and rhinos

      1. These Democrats and RINO’s are going to get theirs….. sooner than they think. 2022 and 2024 re=elections….. Don’t vote for radical Democrats/RINO’s.. What have you got to loose?

    3. A few years ago I left the Republicans and joined the Independents. The Republicans still hold the power but occasionally we get to tip the scales.

  2. In this case the bark is worse than the bite. Wait till San Fran Feces Nan, Schmuckie and SloJoe have to deliver on all their promises. Three old, white Swamp critters without a Black Messiah to deflect accountability is a recipe for rancor and tumult. Enjoy watching as they stumble out of the starting gate.
    Scary thought of the day: Speaker Pelosi appearing sans make-up!!!

  4. The House better vote to impeach Waters , Harris. Pelosi for actually inciting violence. We have them on tape. Oh, and Johnson in Michigan.

  5. They can’t possibly impeach Trump from Gitmo, where they will soon be put. I know my President and my God will not let those evil haters take over our country.

      1. If you know your Father God, then you know His voice. It is not arrogance, Just knowing who you are in Him..
        All you have to do is ask Him in your heart, then you can know the Truth.

  6. The senate trial probably won’t happen! The senate will have to hold hearings . Since only 3 days left till inauguration and they cannot impeach since he will be a citizen and not the president. It is only what the Demoncrats that are trying to go against the constitution!

  7. Give Piglosi enough rope, hopefully she is hanging herself! It was up to her to ensure the capitol building was secure, and she dropped the ball, didn’t have the seargent at arms pull in people to secure the building. Hmmmm! Could it be she knew the breach was coming because she and her pals hired blm and antifa to “ storm the building” so the objections to the electoral college votes couldn’t be heard? Looks like an inside job to me! Something is mighty fishy( other than piglosi’s stench) !

  8. nancy big tit pelosi is the biggest divider and trouble maker walking the earth of the usa today. she needs to sit down go to the bathroom and then say ok enough is enough. no she will stir the pot until it stinks and i do hope she gets everything she wishes for in the end. her will to do evil is astounding . i never saw or heard of such a evil or hateful vendetta type person before in a life time. she needs to be put out of office. we pay her to do important things not her fantasies but no she is so motivated by politics the h… with citizen needs.

  9. Don’t be upset with the GOP, their a bunch of rhinos for the queen of the hop! We need new, true to the party Republicans! I use to vote for the person no matter what party, but the Dems lost me forever! Nancy loves drama and stage! Trump is great!

  10. Personally I’d like to see both Pelosi and Waters forced to have mental and physical evaluation’s to see if their capable of doing their job’s as senators. They both show sign’s of Mental Illness. Erratic behavior. uncontrolled anger and hatred. They are not only a danger to themselves but to others. we need to know if their on drugs are alcohol. For their own safety and ours this should be done immediately before they can hurt themselves or one of us.

  11. I see no value in continuing with impeachment after Trump leaves the WH. There is no solid evidence that Trump incited the violence. What value will this bring to Democrats, Republicans or Independents? Pelosi should resign her position as Speaker of the House. She is filled with so much hatred it has consumed her and she can’t do her job at representing her constituents much less make rational decisions affecting Americans.
