Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for refusing to send articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate.
During his comments to the press, Graham reminded Pelosi that we have a separation of powers for a reason.
He also went on to say that she cannot be speaker of the House and Senate Majority leader at the same time.
It doesn’t work that way!
Essentially what Pelosi is doing is obstructing Congress and abusing her power, in my view.
This is exactly what she is accusing President Trump of doing.
She doesn’t want to send the articles over because the Senate has said they’re dead on arrival.
Why wouldn’t they?
This is a sham.
We’ve spent three years listening to these buffoons cheer and celebrate that they’d be impeaching Trump.
Now all of a sudden, because a few people wore black dresses, we’re supposed to believe this is some “somber” duty of which they never expected to be a part?
The American people are not that stupid.

Here’s how The Federalist put it:
After the vote to impeach President Donald Trump, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she will not name impeachment managers until she can be assured the Senate will hold a “fair” trial. Republican senators are pushing back on what Pelosi means by “fair.”
“The next thing for us will be when we see the process that is set forth in the Senate. Then we’ll know the number of managers that we may have to go forward and who we would choose,” Pelosi said during a press conference after the impeachment vote. “But, in any event, we’re ready, when we see what [the Senate has] we will know who and how many we will send over.

This is all a big game to the House Democrats, as I see it.
They knew all along that the Senate would vote to acquit President Trump because they — the House Dems — didn’t prove their case.
Now, Pelosi wants to hold America hostage in yet another political stunt and attempted power grab.
The Dems made a mockery of the SCOTUS nomination process with their stunts last year against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — and now they’re making a mockery of impeachment in an even worse way that is even more damaging to the country.
This further proves how little the Dems care about the hard-working American people.
They will jump through hoops to keep their political farce going but won’t lift a finger to do the actual work of the American people who elected them.
It’s shameful and they will be punished at the ballot box in November 2020.
