Thread Name: BS: Don't be ashamed of impeachment
Subject: RE: BS: Don't be ashamed of impeachment
So, McConnell delayed Obama's last Supreme Court appointment until after the election, saying he would "let the people decide." The impeachment in the House was a benefit to the Democrats, but the trial in a Republican Senate is not. Maybe Pelosi should keep delaying the Articles of Impeachment until November, and "let the people decide"?
It would also serve to keep Trump at a disadvantage for the whole of 2020. Pelosi is smarter than you think, Donuel. And I tend to think she's smarter than both McConnell and Trump.
At the very least, Pelosi deserves to be able to compel Trump Administration officials to testify in the trial. If McConnell won't allow witnesses, then Pelosi should hold out until the election...and "let the people decide."
