Pelosi withholds articles of impeachment from the Senate

After the Democratic majority of the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday, Majority leader Nancy Pelosi said the House could withhold the two articles from the Senate until it  promises “a fair process.” A president cannot be removed by impeachment in the House, only by the Senate. Since the Senate’s Republican majority is bound to acquit Trump of the charges brought by the Democrats for his impeachment, Pelosi’s maneuver aims to keep the process in limbo. There is no time limit for transmitting the articles to the judgment of the Senate.

    Why should Pelosi go to the corrupt Senate which said already that there won’t be any witnesses, they consulted already with the WH lawyers, they said the trial IS DOA, Senators should be the Jurors. impartial Jurors for the trial, their words & actions say they WON’T be !

      Have you not been listening to the trial, it is so phony anyone with half a thought process would deny it. They shouldn’t even let it come in front of them, it is so much time and money wasted. The demonrats should be prosecuted for an attempted coup.

    It is more about Winning the Senate & Stop President Trump & Senator McConnell from Appointing a New Supreme Court Justices in 2020 in case an Opening Happens. If Democrats Win the Senate they can Stop Trump Judicial Appointments!

    That works. So no impeachment after all, lol. Trump is still POTUS, and will be again in 2020, with the House very likely returning to the Republicans too, while the Senate remains under Republican leadership. I am curious what would happen to the current House impeachment vote in that case. Wouldn’t it be null and void?

    “If the House does not communicate its impeachment to the Senate, it hasn’t actually impeached the president. If the articles are not transmitted, Trump could legitimately say that he wasn’t truly impeached at all.”
