Will only forward articles of impeachment after seeing trial rules: Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States said on Thursday that she does not intend to hand over the articles of impeachment to the US Senate until and unless Mitch McConnell reveals the rules of the trial. Ms. Pelosi, addressing the press via a press conference, has demanded a trial with witnesses, especially since John Bolton has ’new’ information to give.

I have a feeling you'll find things in the articles of impeachment that werent there when they made them.

the senate rules arent up to you, the senate has sole power to try the articles. shes overstepping, just like you had the sole power to impeach and set those rules.

It's fun to watch Pelosi exercise her self appointed relevance and importance over the Senate.

And yet no concern shown at the inquiry. Yeah, we know which side you're on, no need to pretend to be impartial.

Can't they just decide no trial is needed if she doesn't formally hand them over?

The point missed is its about country over party n loyalty to one's oath... The gop showed no loyalty to their oath to constitution but rather behaved like members in the mob bound by an oath of omerta.. To a person.. N thus abdicating congresses power..as a co equal branch.. Charged to check n balance N worse they deliberately have lied to their own base... Gaslighted their own base n pickle that base in constant propaganda.. N sadly.. That base many either know it n fine with it yet many really just want to be true believers... In this idea of trump..because trump did take the time to listen to them n speaks to them n their frustrations.... Sadly they have no idea he is but using them like all the others before.. Read Eric Hoffer True believers n u may grasp the mass movement called trumpism... Which is nationalism.. Trumpism doesn't give a damn about constitution nor the republic.... Trumpism is about absolutism. .

If he starts a war without congressional approval given climate of house n senate right now... That could become another impeach able offense.. N if Bolton testifies even if just to the house there could be other offenses different then current.... Could be obstruction of justice or extortion

Vass they can't change the two articles ie indictments but the can supplement them but to do so must vote on supplements... The articles are like what a grand jury sends to a court.. The nonsense rhetoric bout house witnesses.. Well hard to get one when executive branch obstructed.... Point is trials have witnesses... Cover ups don't.. N the senate is place for trial.. The gop senate is scared to examine the witnesses or explore documents... For if any had information to exonerate they would jump on it... What they have don't is successfully lied to confuse their own base n keep em in line... I bet sooner or later John Bolton testifies.. Perhaps in closed house session or perhaps mitt Romney demands it n has two others n the deciding vote to break any tie must be made by chief Justice roberts of scotus... In impeachment trials the vp has no role in senate at all.... I won't if Mike Lee won't now also want to hear from bolton
