Fox Host Claims Pelosi’s Latest Impeachment Move is Unconstitutional

Fox News host Mark Levin is claiming that the attempt by Nancy Pelosi to hold up the articles of impeachment from going to the Senate is unconstitutional.

According to The Daily Wire:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is considering withholding the Democrats’ articles of impeachment — passed without a single Republican vote — from the U.S. Senate in an attempt to pressure the Republican-controlled Senate to cave to Democratic demands on how to conduct a “fair” impeachment trial. But constitutional lawyer and conservative commentator Mark Levin says such an act would be “brazen[ly]” unconstitutional and would provide Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with a golden opportunity.

“So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us,” Pelosi told reporters after the vote Wednesday. “That would’ve been our intention, but we’ll see what happens over there.”

“Nancy Pelosi was apparently advised by leftwing Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe to delay sending the impeachment to the Senate. So she’s unilaterally sitting on the impeachment. This is another brazen unconstitutional act,” Levin wrote, in a thread that’s starting to gain some attention online.

“Here’s what Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans must do in response:  The Senate has the sole power under the Constitution to adjudicate an impeachment. Therefore, Pelosi is attempting to obstruct the Senate’s power to act on its constitutional authority,” the Fox News host continued.

This process has been handled oddly by Pelosi since the beginning and that appears to be continuing until the bitter end.

Arrest Pelosi for ‘obstruction of justice’, or something-or-other. It is high time the Republicans quit being so ‘nice’. ‘Fight fire with fire’. Give the Dems a strong taste of their own medicine. Just get with it, guys & gals. The American people are getting fed up with all the impeachment gobbledegook just because the Dems don’t like the way the 2016 election turned out. They have started believing their own lies.

Now since when did the defence or the jury get to say when a trial is held, that is up t0 the prosecutor in every instance, he is the one who decides when to gon to court some timesm it is a year fronm the time of the charges being laid out. There is nothing in the Conmstitutionb which says any thing about how quich an impeachment charge has to get to the trial.

In spite of Pelosi’s gambit….of delaying or even choosing to not forward what paperwork there is for this Impeachment, it will do her no good. The Constitution is clear. With or without those papers, the Senate can hold either a trial or…………..acquit. She can hide those papers in the basement for however long she wants and it won’t stop the Senate. There is no leverage to be gained by delaying or withholding the papers. IF, she thinks that she can tell the Senate how to proceed, she can also give up on that per….U.S. Constitution: Article I, Section 3 says: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”

Democrats and many Republicans have had no concern for what the Constitution days for some time now. This is the result.

Pelosi and Schumer will do everything they can to hamper, and give Donald Trump a bad time. “Similar to what Jackals do of hunting in large packs, to bring down the larger, or smarter victim”. And Both will delay, knowing the old people in Senate Democratic Party have been in Washington since forever, and will forget what they heard, or saw, during the House hearings. They have a lousy case, which no self respecting judge would have ever allowed in a Court of Law. None of the witnesses had first-hand knowledge of what was said, or done. ‘But they had talked to others, and repeated what they were told”.
——–In Law Court, as soon as the prosecutor completes giving the case, and witnesses have been heard, the jury is taken to a separate room, to start their discsussion, and voting to decide case. “Guilty or Innocent”. This may take some time, even days, but they do not talk to others (then court law officials) until decision. So Pelosi and Schumer are stacking the deck, even more than predicted. BUT WHAT ELSE DO THEY HAVE TO DO? They have obstructed government for last 3 years, and shown contempt for Congress , well over the line. THERE IS NO JUSTICE OR FAIR PLAY, IN TINSEL TOWN.

It seems Pelosi is not aware of the meaning of a fair and speedy trial. This is the right of every citizen. The way I see it she just violated the Presidents rights.

The Mandamus Law and Legal Definition: A mandamus is an order to a public agency or governmental body to perform an act required by law when it has neglected or refused to do so. A person may petition for a writ of mandamus when an official has refused to fulfill a legal obligation, such as ordering an agency to release public records.
