House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi headed the impeachment witch hunt against President Donald Trump in The House of Representatives.
One of the Articles of Impeachment the Democrats voted to impeach him on was abuse of power, but it appears that Speaker Pelosi is the one who is abusing her power.
She is currently sitting on the Articles of Impeachment, playing a game with the Republicans in Senate in a bid to get them to have their trial the way she wants them to.
On Monday Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz appeared on the Fox News show “Hannity” and said Pelosi is the one who is guilty of abuse of power.
He also said that holding on to the Articles of Impeachment makes her guilty of obstruction of Senate, which means she is the one who should be facing the two charges that President Trump is facing.
“You know what I say? This is obstruction of the Senate, the exact same charge that was made against the president. This is abuse of power from exactly same charge they made against the president. It is wrong constitutionally, and it is wrong morally, and it is wrong politically,” he said.
It was mere minutes after the House passed the Articles of Impeachment when Speaker Pelosi began talking about withholding them from the Senate until she gets her way.
“The Democrats can’t have it both ways. They can’t sound the one hand, to the public we are saying he is impeached, but to this and that he has not impeached,” the professor said.
Speaker Pelosi insisted that the president was impeached, but she wanted to hold on to the Articles of Impeachment until she was assured of a “fair” trial.
“So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us,” she said on the day of the impeachment. “But right now, the president is impeached.”
That is something that one of the Democrats’ own witnesses, professor Noah Feldman, has disagreed with, arguing that the president is not impeached until the Senate has the Articles of Impeachment.
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said that what the Speaker is doing is “incredibly dangerous.”
“What they’re proposing, to not send the articles for disposition to the Senate after being passed in the House, is incredibly dangerous,” he said.
“Just think for a moment, you pass articles of impeachment in the House, you refuse to send them to the Senate until the Senate constructs a trial of your liking as speaker of the House,” the senator said.
“This is a land — uncharted waters, constitutionally,” he said. “I just know this, that this matters to the future of the country. We cannot have a system where the House impeaches the president, tells the Senate how to conduct the trial, holds the articles of impeachment over the president’s head at a time of their choosing to unleash them.”
If Pelosi is guilty of the same charges she has filed against President Trump then the Republicans in Senate should have her stand trial the way she wants President Trump to stand trial.
