After four weeks of trying to force the Senate to do the House's job, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) finally sent two articles of impeachment to the Upper Chamber. Yesterday, House Democrats literally carried the articles for "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress" from one side of the Capitol to another in what many thought was a ridiculous and overly dramatic processional. (Watch it here.)
The third impeachment trial of a U.S. president is expected to start next week. Pelosi's month-long haranguing of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was over allowing additional witnesses at the trial. McConnell insisted that the Senate was not going to do the House's "homework" for them.
Days before the House voted to remove President Trump from office, McConnell called the Democrat-led Witch Hunt "the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history." Many Trump supporters are thankful the Majority Leader has refused to enable what he also called a "predetermined end of a partisan crusade."
+ + NEW! Grassfire QuickPoll: Should McConnell call the Democrats' "bluff" and allow witnesses at the Senate trial of President Trump? See below.
On Tuesday, the GOP leader quietly invited Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John Cornyn of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah to his office to discuss strategy. ...
During the 30-minute session, Cruz pitched McConnell on the idea of witness reciprocity — if Democrats want to hear from former Trump national security adviser John Bolton on the Ukraine scandal, then Republicans get to hear from Hunter Biden.
So why not call the Democrats' "bluff" and call additional witnesses? If they ARE allowed, Americans might FINALLY get to hear from former VP and now-Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden about the real quid pro quo that happened in Ukraine -- back in 2016! We the People can also learn about possible Ukrainian corruption from Hunter Biden.
And what about the "whistleblower"? Millions of Mr. Trump's supporters would love to know what he (or she) actually heard firsthand in that infamous July phone call between our Commander-in-Chief and the president of Ukraine.
