Trump: Impeachment ‘Should Not Even Be Allowed to Proceed’; Republican Believes Nancy Pelosi Withheld Impeachment Articles for Nefarious Reasons (VIDEO)

By Townhall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she was finally willing to transmit two articles of impeachment over to the Senate next week so the upper chamber could begin its impeachment trial of the president. On Sunday, President Trump tweeted his thoughts on the looming Senate trial, echoing concerns that such a trial only gives credence to the partisan House witch hunt that masqueraded itself as a legitimate impeachment inquiry.

The president also tweeted a video featuring his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, being interviewed by Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on Saturday. In the interview, Giuliani argued the two articles of impeachment against the president should promptly be dismissed at the beginning of Trump’s Senate trial. Giuliani said the two articles, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, are not impeachable acts under the Constitution.

The former New York City mayor said the two articles of impeachment are not even crimes and therefore should be dismissed by the Supreme Court. Giuliani admitted that there was nothing in the Constitution expressly giving the Supreme Court power over Congress on the subject of impeachment, but Giuliani also pointed out that there was nothing in the Constitution expressly giving the Supreme Court power to declare a law passed by Congress unconstitutional. The Supreme Court should similarly step in like they did in the Madison decision, Giuliani argued, to resolve the clash between the two branches of government.

Top House Republican Believes Nancy Pelosi Withheld Impeachment Articles for Nefarious Reasons

By The Blaze. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said on Fox News Sunday that he believes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has withheld the approved articles of impeachment from the Senate for nefarious reasons.

Speaking with host Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures,” McCarthy said the “dirty little secret” about Pelosi delaying the articles is that she has done so in order to boost Joe Biden’s presidential campaign and hurt Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), whose campaign is gaining momentum by the day. . .

“This harms Senator Sanders, who is in first place and could become their nominee, because he will be stuck in a chair, because Nancy Pelosi held the papers, different than what she said to the American public why she had to move so urgently,” he continued.

“She told the American public it was urgent. She had to move so fast. The only reason why she should be — that she is doing this that no one is talking about — it is harming Bernie Sanders, the senator, who has been coming into first place, who could win Iowa and propel himself to be the nominee,” McCarthy explained. “It’s the exact same thing they did to him four years ago.”
