Impeachment Articles to be Transmitted to the Senate

| January 15, 2020

Nancy Pelosi is due to sign off on transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate this evening. She originally held out from sending these. She hoped to influence the way the Senate would conduct the impeachment trial. The Senate Majority Leader stood his ground with regards to what direction the process would take in the Senate. Nancy Pelosi could not hold onto the articles of impeachment much longer.

House Impeachment managers, who will prosecute this in the Senate, have already been chosen. Among them are Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler. Nancy Pelosi pointed out that once a president is impeached, this status is permanent.

From Fox News:

Pelosi introduced the lawmakers who will serve as House managers to prosecute the case against the president early Wednesday. They include House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who will serve as lead manager and who directed much of the House impeachment inquiry out of his committee, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., whose panel drafted the articles of impeachment.

Pelosi also tapped House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.; Reps. Jason Crow, D-Colo.; Val Demings, D-Fla.; Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas; and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif.

Once the Senate notifies the House that the Senate is prepared to receive the managers, they will come to an agreement on a specific time for the managers to appear and introduce the case. They will read the official resolution, which the House passed on Wednesday, and the articles of impeachment in full.

Senate Majority Leader Mitchell McConnell wants to utilize the procedures used during then-President Clinton’s impeachment trial. A reading of the transcripts of the phone call, between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, appears to show that the Democrats will have an uphill battle.

    This has “Failure” written all over it.

    That she put Schiff for brains in charge is absolutely mind boggling. They are going to look so stupid in all this.

    That guy on a good day looks like the town idiot with that crazy-eyed, deer in the headlights stare he’s got.

    Fucking clown show commence!

    • Mason says:

      What is interesting in the list of managers is Jason Crow. He’s a freshman Congressman. He’s the only one who isn’t in a comfortably Democrat district. The others on the list won recently with banana-republic-like 75% margins (or just completely unopposed), some of them have been in their congressional seats so long they have an ass groove (looking at you Nadler).

      He’s a combat vet of Afghanistan though. Was an officer with both the 75th Rangers and the 82nd. So I’m fairly certain that’s the only reason he was picked.

    • AW1Ed says:

      She had little choice in appointing Nadler- after all he is the top Dem on the House Judiciary Committee, but Schiff-for-brains? He’s going to get roasted for his antics, especially his complete bullshit soliloquy on Trump’s phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

      San Fran Nan appointed a PNG.

    So is Schiff going to use as theme music, The theme from

    Captain Kangaroo?

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    Pelosi is the epitome of the control freak. Is she a Scorpio? She has no control over what really happens and she knows it, and delaying this any longer won’t work, but she’s going to interfere with the process while it happens in the Senate. See if she doesn’t!

      Nailed it Ex! All this time and money pissed away just because the Bitch of Benghazi didn’t get her turn. Dig deep enough and you will see that dasHildabeast is at the root of it all. Granny Pigilosi is just the useful idiot with the gavel. These sumbitches are running scared that the American people have awakened and is gonna drain the swamp, sending these domestic enemies of ours to prison. God I pray that it becomes so.

      Bring on an open trial…Won’t never happen. They don’t want an open trial. Too much dirt on both sides will bubble up from the swamp that is the District of Criminals.

      scorpion

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Nah – Scorpio, the sign of the nastiest, most vindictive critters on the planet, control freaks that believe only THEY are right – ever.

        She is going to her grave with that gavel in her clutches.

  5. Berliner says:

    I’m surprised Rep Hank Johnson (D-GA) isn’t an Impeachment manager. He’s the hero of Guam for preventing it from tipping over from too many troops.
    His mind is legendary!

  6. The Other Whitey says:

    As senile and deranged as she is, I seriously doubt Pelosi thinks this will go anywhere. I suspect her goal here to have Schiffforbrains and Fatass take the fall when this impeachment train inevitably wrecks. That dessicated bitch is obsessed with maintaining her grip on power at all costs, after all, and their case against Trump makes OJ’s defense look airtight by comparison.

  7. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

    Can Schiff-for-brains, as an Im-Peach-Mint “Manager”, be called as a witless…….errrrrr……..witness..at the Kafka-esque trial? Or is he under immunity?

    (OT, what does an Im-Peach-Mint taste like? Where can I buy one to eat?)

  8. DavidatWork17 says:

    Fun theory circulating on parts of reddit: since impeachment proceedings require the full attendance of the Senate, and Bernie Sanders is the only Senator still in the running with the DNC, Pelosi timed the delivery to ensure his absence during key debates.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Mmmm, could be, she IS that vindictive of a mega-bitch. If it weren’t for the Bitch of Benghazi having all of those Superdelegates in her grip, Bernie would have won the nomination.

    • OWB says:

      The timing means something, that is for sure. Whether any of us is insane enough to accurately discern what…well…

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      The Dems are rigging the nomination process against Bernie? Really? Like that could ever happen.

    “Jeopardy!’ Contestants Can’t Identify Adam Schiff From A Photo”:

    https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/jeopardy-contestants-cant-identify-adam-schiff

    “Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was met with crickets from contestants on Wednesday night after none of them could identify House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., by looking at a photo of him.”

    “The $1,200 clue came under the category “U.S. Representatives” and included a photo of Schiff along with the hint “One-fifty-third of California’s House delegation is this House Intelligence Committee chairman.”

    “No one buzzed in.”

    Why is it that Schifftless looks like someone goosed him from behind?
