    Then the buffoon Pelosi signs her name one letter at a time with different pens and hands the pens out as souvenirs.

    All the while President Trump was actually doing the people's business when he signed the first part of the new trade agreement with China. MAGA.



    Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley laid out a sweeping indictment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., arguing that her impeachment strategy backfired and gave Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the upper hand.

    "The delay now seems largely driven by a desire to preserve the image of Pelosi as a master strategist despite a blunder of the first order," Turley wrote in a column titled, "Pelosi's Blunder: How the House Destroyed its Own Case for Impeachment."

    His comments came as Pelosi prepared to transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate, roughly a month after the House approved them. She initially withheld them in an apparent attempt to draw concessions from McConnell. On Wednesday she announced the seven lawmakers who will serve as impeachment managers to prosecute the case against the president at his Senate trial.

    "There was no reason why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would make concessions to get an impeachment that he loathed," Turley wrote.

    Turley similarly suggested that Pelosi pushed impeachment out of "vanity" and would pay a "high price" for doing so.

    Ah yes, Jonathan Turdly again - the “liberal” (hee hee) nitwit the GOP trotted out to babble that Trump should not be impeached because he obstructed the investigation.

    You really should read the Articles of Impeachment. Article II gives you a nice summary of the obstruction.

    In short, Trump ordered all his people to refuse to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry in any way, including ordering them to defy all subpoenas for documents and testimony. Why? Because he unilaterally declared the inquiry to be “illegitimate.” Complete and utter lawless obstruction.

    You’re welcome.

    Doesn't Trump sign bills with several pens to hand out to those who were part of the process, for history? No, he's too selfish.

    Anyway, Pelosi knows this. Even Turley does.

    You are projecting hard.

    Impeachment only matters to politicians.
    After his next term he will retire a billionaire with mansions.And not give a wit about Politics. (unlike liberals who can never leave DC)

    While my base(you) will be banging a keyboard in a sausage stained wifebeater like all old leftist boomers.

    After he gets out of office he will immediately be arrested and put on trial on the charges that couldn’t be brought against him while he was in office.

    That may be illegal...But then when did you fake socialists ever care about that?

    Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
