Listen: Will Nancy Pelosi’s Gambit to Withhold Impeachment Charges From the Senate Work?
"Co Author of the point. I'm here to cut through the political spin to bring us news. You need to know on Wednesday. The House voted to impeach president. Donald Trump after that house speaker. Nancy Pelosi was supposed to transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate. It's a procedural step that then means the Senate takes over the impeachment process after all the Senate is in charge of the trial component. Not The house but something happened or rather something didn't happen. POLISI did not send the articles of impeachment to the Senate on Wednesday night after the historic vote take explained that would have been our intention. But we'll see what happens over there. So what's with the delay. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell has not given in many details about the forthcoming Senate trial in fact. We don't even officially know when it is supposed to start. Pelosi's delay is an effort to get some leverage coverage on McConnell Democrats hope this might force McConnell to agree to the parameters for a Senate trial that Democrats want including agreeing. Bring to bring in first hand witnesses like acting. White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. The only problem Democrats aren't in the majority in the Senate Republicans are and Republicans including McConnell. Aren't all that heartbroken to delay the impeachment process right now. McConnell and the Senate's top Democrat Chuck Schumer are at an impasse over the rules for a trial. Another complication both. The House and Senate have left Washington for the rest of Twenty nineteen gene meaning. This impasse is going to last into the new year. That brings us to the point. The House may have voted to impeach trump. But it's not quite done with with those articles of impeachment."
