McConnell Declares Impeachment Rules Negotiation Over

Mitch McConnell has claimed that negotiations for the rules of an impeachment trial are over and it is time to move forward.

According to The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fired back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s decision to double down in their weeks-long fight over the impeachment trial and warned he will not haggle with House Democrats.

“I’ve made clear from the beginning that no such leverage exists. It’s nonexistent, and yesterday we made clear it will never exist. ….There will be no haggling with the House over Senate procedure,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.

He added that the “House Democrats’ turn is over. The Senate has made its decision.”

Pelosi (D-Calif.), in a “Dear Colleague” letter published on Tuesday night, called on McConnell to release the resolution that will detail the rules for the looming trial and warned that she will not send over the two articles until he does.

Pelosi is now saying that she will not transmit the article of impeachment to the Senate until Mitch McConnell reveals what the rules will be.

It’s not her call to make. No one can run both the Senate and HOR, and she’s trying to do that exactly. She has gotten so used to getting her own way, that NOW, she’s up against both McConnell AND Trump……two alpha males who get things done the first time.

If Pelosi thinks she can runs the country she has her wires mixed up. The President even, if she hates him, runs the country. If her attitude continues she should be removed from office

She is always looking for leverage that she doesn’t and has never had. Just another lame attempt by spoiled socialist democrats to have things their way – above everyone else.
President Trump has been through the wringer since November 8th 2016. The democrats came after him, his administration and supporters with reckless abandon. The have literally ignored and tried to supersede every law, every article and every rule of comportment and protocol in a single minded effort to remove our President from the office he legitimately won. They try to sabotage everything he does with either the media or their vane attempts to pass legislation that will never pass. They try maliciously to sabotage and interfere with foreign relations imposing an attitude that somehow THEY know better than anyone else how that policy needs to mitigated and negotiated and in some cases – enforced. These socialist democrats try weakly to call themselves Americans – but sadly they are a just a cheap, hollow suit. God bless President Trump – his family, his staff and administration – God bless America and bring on the 2020 election !!!

Even is this, she shows her corruption. She is vile and should not be given an inch. Look at the circus they set up in the house, and remember how they have accomplished NOTHING, that their appointments require, for the duties they where supposedly elected to perform. Let her pound sand until this farce is dismissed, or she is indicted on charges she knows are coming. The Presidents letter to her was the shot across the bow, and she knows it. Remember President Trump told them all, investigations work both ways… The time is coming soon, all will be exposed!

Pure delusional and in serious need of a psychiatrist. She doesn’t do her job so I hope the good people of San Francisco tell her to get the hell out the next time. And….I’m waiting for the ball to fall on her head for corruption and treasonous actions…she certainly has it coming.

And that is where McConnell says “okay.”

End of story.

SHE’S an idiot! A dangerous one, but still an idiot! AND a traitor to this country. We the People need to round them ALL up, & ship them over to Iran. I’m SURE they’d love to have them, in case they can get some of our secrets from them. IF our country is ever attacked again, on OUR soil, you can about bet that they’ll try to help whoever it is. I hope God gets her, & SOON!

This evil woman thinks that she rules. Well, she is NOTHING but a low class Representive who shows in every way possible that she is a Traitor to our Country. Hopefully, the people in her District wake up and remove her from our government. Wonder how much she was paid to betray AMERICA?

The real issue is that Pelosi has exceeded her authority in an attempt to overthrow the duly elected government and the WILL OF THE PEOPLE. This is a treasonous BITCH if there ever was one.

The Senate MUST send a FOIA request to the House for a true copy of the articles of impeachment to be delivered. As soon as they are delivered they are DELIVERED LEGALLY even if NOT by the Speaker of the House.
Then Senate can demand FUNDING for the trial. Estimate that it will cost 3-5 times what the house spent. Give the HOUSE 5 days to fund it.
When the house fails to fund, then vote and declare that the charges are dismissed for failure to prosecute.
IF they fund then MOVE TO TRIAL, CREATE YOUR RULES REGARDLESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS ASKED OR DEMANDED BY THE LEFT. WHO CARES WHAT THEY WANT? The House failed to consider the WILL OF THE PEOPLE and failed to consider the United States Constitution in its actions to create an impeachment. Do not consider the left, or dems at all, only consider the US Constitution and common law.
Then begin by handing out the list of subpoenas…Start with ….smile….you know….and their criminal sons who have taken jobs in pay for play demo activities. Move to the traitors who the dems Called “whistle blowers” and prove that they were nothing but deep State Operatives for the two that lead the impeachment hearings. We can go on from there…but in the end the trial can actually find OTHERS guilty instead…this is the cool thing about a trial…it can decide guilt of others not just the accused.
