The standoff over the articles of impeachment continues, something that is baffling considering historical precedent.
Long-time Trump ally Newt Gingrich, however, believes he has the answer.
All throughout the impeachment process, the one thing that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi constantly stated was that time was of the essence.
They were not going to push this off until next year because crimes like this have no timeframe and they must be dealt with immediately.
They were not going to wait for the court cases regarding witnesses and documents to play out because time was of the essence.
The powers that be in the House then proceeded to hold hearings without allowing Republicans to call their desired witnesses.
The articles of impeachment were put together over several days, then sent to the House.
Within 48 hours, the House took a vote and decided, completely along party lines, to impeach Donald J. Trump.
THEN, after all that hurrying, Nancy Pelosi decided to hold the articles.
The fact of the matter is that Dems did not make a solid case, and they know it.
On Monday, Newt Gingrich addressed this issue, stating, “They’re just buying time to see if they can create more evidence.
“But the whole thing is pretty stupid.
“First of all, they’re admitting that the case they have is so weak, they don’t want to send it over to the Senate.
“The more they behave politically, the more they devalue the entire impeachment process.”
There is another motive, according to Gingrich.
The former Speaker believes the current Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, was being threatened by the liberal horde.
While she was never fully behind the impeachment, she went forward anyway because the horde was threatening to remove her from the Speaker’s role.
Point being, while Pelosi gave in on the impeachment, she is holding off on transmitting the articles in the hopes some real evidence will turn up and if it does, they can then add another article (or more) to Trump’s impeachment.
Pelosi may have been able to hold onto the Speaker role but in the process, she has cheapened our Republic and our Constitution by allowing an impeachment for what comes down to be a temper tantrum by the entire Democrat party.
History will remember Pelosi, but it will remember her for being the Democrat that allowed a complete abuse of government in what is undoubtedly one of the most corrupt periods of our Republic.
At some point, a reversal will happen and when it does, we can only hope our Justice Department has the guts to stand up and hold all of these individuals accountable for their roles in this debacle.
