    How the House destroyed its own case for the Trump impeachment

    How the House destroyed its own case for the Trump impeachment

    While various Democrats have publicly grumbled about the delay, going into its fourth week, without any sign of success in forcing the Senate to call witnesses, Pelosi continued a strategy that could jeopardize not just any trial but the rules governing impeachment. Indeed, Pelosi may force the Senate into a couple of unprecedented but well deserved rulings.

    H/T: TheHill

    House Democrats rushed through their haphazard impeachment “process,” pushing forward with “extreme urgency,” not waiting for the courts to decide whether their key witnesses would be allowed to testify. Now, they're looking to force the Senate to allow those same witnesses, still without any relevant court ruling, and this time without any leverage whatsoever.

    Well done, Democrats! You've played yourself.

    Turley's not having any of it, equating Pelosi's machinations to a cautionary tail, saying “future Houses are now on notice that it is in their interest to complete their records before sending an impeachment to the Senate.”

    Rudy Giluliani writes in a Daily Caller piece that House Democrats “have brought Alexander Hamilton’s nightmare of an entirely partisan impeachment to fruition and are making a mockery of fair proceedings."

    Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy, in an appearance during Fox News' The Ingraham Angle Thursday night, surmises Speaker Pelosi is simply too embarrassed to send their articles over to the Senate.
