REVEALED!!! See Why Nancy Pelosi’s Impeachment Charade Is Bound To FAIL.
It’s Just been revealed by a group of veteran lawmakers that the quick, partisan impeachment by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was a grievous strategic miscalculation.
The California Democrat decided to hold two articles of impeachment from the Senate, believing she could pressure the Senate to bring forth witnesses as part of the trial.
Let’s overlook the absurd demands for fairness that House Democrats are making. Their partisan House process was unprecedented and earned bipartisan opposition as the White House was denied due process,therefore leaks and secret hearings were regularly utilized during Impeachment.

Beyond the fairness issue, there are several problems with Mrs. Pelosi’s Impeachment approach unveiling itself now that the House has acted.
Here Are Some Costly Mistakes That Could Lead To Her Fall & Possible Indictment
First, the Republican-led Senate doesn’t want to take up the impeachment and would be delighted if Mrs. Pelosi pocket-vetoed her own measure indefinitely. That floor time can be used to confirm 15-20 more federal judges with lifetime appointments.
Secondly, the House has no leverage in the Senate as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell answers not to Mrs. Pelosi but to the 53 Republican senators who make up his conference. This is not like a conference committee where two bills must be reconciled.
Thirdly, decisions on witnesses are not
entirely up to him. He can negotiate a bipartisan agreement with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, but ultimately the trial process and agreements on witnesses are subject to a 51-vote threshold.
Fourthly, Mrs. Pelosi’s position is entirely incoherent. She apparently believes impeachment was necessary and urgent because the president is such a threat to democracy and national security, but that impeachment can wait until the Senate’s trial procedures meet her approval. She can’t have it both ways.
Also, a demand for specific witnesses undermines the strength of her own case. Why did Democrats pass the two articles if the case she presented in the House requires these fresh witnesses? Democrats have repeatedly said they had a strong case, so why do they need more witnesses at Impeachment trial?
Finally, the calendar is a matter of concern for Senate Democrats. Even a short trial held in January would be profoundly inconvenient for the four sitting senators running for president, with the Iowa caucuses to be held Feb. 3.
In a trial, senators are required to be sitting quietly at their desks for hours at a time for several weeks. Mrs. Pelosi’s pointless delay increases the odds that the trial will be held at the most inconvenient time possible.
Mr. McConnell is not rejecting witnesses without consideration. He is suggesting that the process used in the trial of President Bill Clinton be used here as well. Both sides present their case, and then a majority vote is held on witnesses.
Mrs. Pelosi may understand the House, but this unforced error has proven that she does not understand the Senate.
She faces two bad options in the new year. She can fold and gain no concessions from Mr. McConnell or she can effectively prevent the Senate from ever holding a trial. In the latter case, Mr. McConnell may well hold an acquittal vote in the Senate, which would require 51 votes.
Nancy Pelosi might think she is on the verge of impeaching President Trump but unknown to her she could be plotting her own downfall as Impeachment looks doom to fail.
