Donald Trump wanted a big three-ring trial. Now, for some reason, he has pulled that back and wants a hasty trial. Perhaps, he realizes that the longer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) waits to turn the Articles of Impeachment over to the Senate, the greater the opportunity that more evidence will surface.
Trump’s only tweet tried to goad her into releasing the Articles of Impeachment now:
‘“The reason they are not sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate is that they are so weak and so pathetic.” @LindseyGrahamSC @MariaBartiromo The great Scam continues. To be spending time on this political Hoax at this moment in our history, when I am so busy, is sad!’
Then, Trump added a second “impeachment hoax” tweet:
‘The Impeachment Hoax, just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which started even before I won the Election, must end quickly. Read the Transcripts, see the Ukrainian President’s strong statement, NO PRESSURE – get this done. It is a con game by the Dems to help with the Election!’
Graham appeared on Fox News Sunday Morning Futures and said according to The Washington Post:
‘Well, we’re not going to let Nancy Pelosi use the rules of the Senate to her advantage. My number one goal is [to] not let the speaker of the House become the majority leader of the Senate. . . . If we don’t get the articles this week, then we need to take matters [into] our own hands.’
Representative John Ratcliffe (R-TX) told Fox News:
‘It’s now been almost three weeks, and she hasn’t taken any action. She’s let that progressive, socialist, Democratic mob walk her into a box canyon. She’s put a gun to her own head and she’s looking for Mitch McConnell to give her a way out, and he’s not going to do that.’
House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiffe (D-CA) added:
“One success this has already had is flushing out McConnell, showing he is working in cahoots with the president — that he has made himself an active participant in the president’s coverup. So the American people needed to see that, and now they do.’
Twitter world went nuts. Check out what people thought of Trump’s post below:
