Beyond Clown Show: Pelosi hints at delay sending impeachment articles to Senate (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 410.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Nancy Pelosi’s suggestion that she might delay sending the two articles of impeachment to the Senate.

“So far, we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us,” Pelosi said in response to questions about the Senate process. “We will make our decision as to when we are going to send it, when we see what they are doing on the Senate side.”

Nancy Pelosi has suggested she will delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate in order for Democrats to build up more evidence against Trump and delay a swift acquittal.

Last night, the House voted along party lines to impeach Trump, a partisan move that enables Democrats to continually undermine and discredit Trump as the “impeached President.”

However, with the effort virtually guaranteed to fall flat in the Senate, Democrats are planning to delay and drag the process in yet another underhanded stunt.

Following the impeachment vote, Pelosi said she would withhold the articles of impeachment until the Senate makes rules that she determines will be “fair” to the prosecution.

The Conservative Treehouse blog describes this as a “cunning Lawfare ploy” that was a “pre-planned procedural process by design.”

“Now the delay in sending the articles of impeachment allows the House lawyers to gather additional evidence while the impeachment case sits in limbo.”

“The House essentially blocks any/all impeachment activity in the Senate by denying the transfer of the articles from the House to the Senate. Additionally, the House will now impede any other Senate legislative action because the House will hold the Senate captive. Meanwhile the Democrat presidential candidates can run against an impeached President.”

This additional evidence could include Mueller grand jury material, a deposition by former White House counsel Don McGahn and less Trump’s financial and tax records.

Knowing that the Senate will never vote to impeach Trump, Democrats plan to use the House impeachment vote as yet another tool with which to undo the results of the 2016 election, keeping Trump under a permanent cloud of suspicion right through 2020.

As I read it there are two games at play where the Dems are concerned. The Jumior left really want to herd themselves into the abyss and charge, paper daggers in hand to try and impeach trump. The failure would be resounding and inevitable. The old guard like Pelosi really are at odds and don’t really want to commit to impeachment because they know how doomed they are and are left to work out the best form of damage control. If they are suspected of anything less than full commitment the juniors will rally against them and ruin the left… Read more »

They’re hoping that Germany will hit back hard over NS2 and create enough dissent among the Repugs to push through impeachment.

Not that they oppose sanctions, quite the contrary. They just want to point to Trump losing a crucial ally. We know the game already. It’s Jokers Wild. I think the Russians call it Durak.

May be even simpler, maybe the deep state hasn’t coerced enough Reps on-side yet. I am still at LEAST 50% that this thing is VERY real, and NWO/CIA/FBI driven coup. Quit focusing on the senile and imbecilic DEMs, its bigger than that.
Look at how it started. Do you honestly believe that the FBI and CIA operate at the whims of the DNC? Or is it FAR more likely that its THE OTHER WAY ROUND?
Did the Democratic party decide to kill Kennedy, and the CIA just “followed orders”? THINK!!

What you’re saying maybe over egging the pudding as well. If the deep state really were in control Trump wouldn’t have been in office as the Republicans had the choice of candidate before the election started (not to mention general chicanery). More over Trump was a protest vote showing the Deep State aren’t truly in power and as long as we the people put loose cannons on deck the Deep State are becoming ever more rushed and exposed. At the end of the day you can’t counter human wilfulness and hubris and the best laid plans of mice and men… Read more »

I hope you are right, and I am on your side here, believe me. I read your posts, and you “get it”. I wish I could believe I was “over-egging the pudding”. I wish I could believe that all was well, and and this impeachment will be exposed as the shallow, pathetic sham that it is, and we will move past this into a “Brave new world” (ok, that was cheap) where our democratic will prevails. My heart says ‘yes, YES, a thousand TIMES YES!!!” My intellect says something else entirely, much more in line with the sinister, cynical satirical… Read more »

Try being a civil servent in Northern Ireland. We’ll show you jaded cynicism 😉 🙂 I fear what you’re looking for, as many are, is the smoking gun, but there isn’t one gun, just the inevitable corruption that comes to the irresponsible in positions of power. As history has oft shown that the corrupt eat themselves and the foolish oft elect new corruption and vice to power, making the desciptor of this being a clown world vey apt imo. As it stands I see the Deep State running as headless as the Dems if they are running at all. It’s… Read more »

Well, and like I said, I really am very much of two minds about this, it more a matter of me expressing my deepest fears around it than attempting to predict the future.
FWIW, taking the long view, history supports your position. But my god, there sure was some absolutely HELLISH chaos interspersed throughout that long-term trajectory. I fear it could get a HELL of a lot darker before we emerge into a new era of enlightenment.

History is nothing if not long in vision and short on specifics. Imagine Canada at the turn of the 18th/19th century and see it now. Also see how often things repeat. Finally try and look at the grass over yonder (Northern Ireland for example). Was it ever any greener. There will be hell to come, but wipe off the dust and you’ll see life for what it is…Rich A-Holes Sh*tting on the poor while the rest of us are still content to have each other and a job to do.

So you start to talk yourself back from the edge of the precipice, “yea, cudwieser talks sense, he makes some good points” “yea, we as a species have been here many times in our history” “hell they are corrupt, but not full-on CRAZEEE (wanna bet? Hell I’ll give you odds)” yea, I gotta chill out a bit, yea, that’s it. I know, I’ll read a book, yea, that’s it! ah, yes, I’ll just sit here in this comfy chair and relax with a cup of coffee and a good book, That’s the ticket… Two pages in…”Another reason I feel that… Read more »

Every time I see “deep state” mentioned, it has been in the context of the deep state being an organisation, a team, a group, a whole. My view is that the opposite is true and in fact the deep state is a collection of cats in the sense of the saying about “herding cats.” The deep state is a set of individuals who each answer to no-one, who are constrained only by self-imposed conventions on what they won’t do because breaking such a convention would be counter-productive to them personally, who know true power and want more of it, who… Read more »

oldandjaded, he-she tells us that “deep state” employees rule over all the millionaires and billionaires in Empire USA. Comes now truth to enlighten that the rich have purchased the decision-making powers of 99% of office holders.
Comes now common horse sense to ask, has oldandjaded sold his soul and conscience to the highest bidder?

Republicans all support Trump’s sanctions on new Germany-Russia pipeline, yet you think that the sanctions may stop the impeachment?
Confusion generator, are you and time-killer oldandjaded one and the same poster?

WARNING: What you are about to read may contain elements of political and social satire. You have been warned. So, you guys still really believe this is about those nasty old h*m* loving, “socialist” dems trying to destroy your righteous, God-fearing leader of “The Free World”, eh? You still REALLY think that’s what this is all about, even after the Horowitz report. Lets break it down. Neither Donald Trump nor Bernie Sanders are members of the Council on Foreign Relations. (The CFR is essentially the US “executive” branch of the Bilderberg, or what most of us commonly call the NWO,… Read more »

And before some dipshit starts (and you KNOW who you are) erecting his usual array of straw men, yes, I am WELL AWARE that there have been other presidents that were NOT members of the CFR, like Bush Jr for instance, but they were kept on a VERY tight leash by “handlers” (Like Cheney and Rumsfeld for instance) that WERE members of the CFR and high ranking Bilderbergers, so DONT EVEN START. My own pet theory on this, is both Bush, and our own beloved little cabbage patch doll of a Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, are not active as CFR… Read more »

Gullible illusion has it that USA is a democracy, when in reality as the goal of Empire USA is to maximize pleasure, by everyone being a dictatorship unto themselves.
Starting at the top, Trump is a one man dictatorship over Bolivia, Venezuela, China and North Korea by starting wars and stopping wars. Next comes Nancy Pelosi dictator over the House to decide for all 330 million Americans if Articles of Impeachment are made null and void, and Mitch McConnell dictator over the Senate to decide if witnesses and an actual hearing is held for impeachment.

And finally, a rule of law that grants the right of every red blooded American to enrich themselves upon the misery of those with less education, less wealth or less whiteness of skin. Which is why the upper-half of society has always hoarded all the land and wealth, and why there has always been a 50% working poor.

As one smoke-screen after another is needed to blind the mind by burning the emotions, all to hide an expansion crazy Empire USA, our make believe government is now conducting the illusion of an impeachment with the goal of generating the maximum confusion possible.

Yet things couldn’t be clearer. The battles are lost and the deep state is looking an out, throwing as much muck to do it. We may not see them go, but be mindful from where they come.

Paid actor Trump and most of Congress having sold all their decision making powers to the highest bidder, yet you call this orchestrated soapbox opera “the deep state”?
