Josh Hawley plans to seek dismissal of impeachment articles

Senator Josh Hawley has said that he plans to try and dismiss the articles of impeachment against President Trump that House Democrats have delayed sending to the Senate, citing ’lack of prosecution’. The two articles of impeachment have been passed in the House but it is unclear when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will transmit it to the Senate.

This is the correct legal action. The house has failed to fulfill the requirements of impeachment. They failed to provide a case for any charges. They failed to find wrongdoing at any level especially the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. They failed to transmit the weakest articles in American history. They failed to gain bipartisan support. If they want to find cause worthy of impeachment and pass articles that make sense then fine, but this impeachment has been nothing but a disgrace for the Dem party and a stain on the process of impeachment.

it will or will not work depending on how it goes in court which will almost certainly happen. comes down to how they interpret impeachment if he is impeached just by the vote then the Senate can just dismiss as he is trying to do if he is not impeached till they deliver the articles to the Senate then trump is not impeached and the Senate cant to anything till the legislation dies at the end of the session or they are sent to the Senate

Interesting strategy. The Shampeachment SHOULD be dismissed because the House is failing to follow procedure. Not sure how the SCOTUS would view this as the US has never had such a childish House to act in this way.

Because house selects trial managers she can play this for a bit more. As if a sealed indictment... N because precedent was set in Clinton impeachment as to witnesses in trial mitch has to make some calls to get ball rolling.... Like it or not.. The 45th president is impeached as in indicted n will be known in history as impeached... Question is will he be trialed by senate..

The senate has zero say in house impeachment.... Zero... Once voted can't be undone... The house has sole power to impeach.. Only thing senate can do is try the case or dismiss the case... For that's their sole power... It's a great distraction tactic though to. Further confuse ppl who don't get how gov works or don't respect how the constitution governs the republic

Wishful move... Creative but won't undo fact prez impeached... House alone has that power.. Senate sole for trial... So dismiss em from senate trial changes nothing
