This was bound to happen…
According to Time magazine, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was inspired to withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate from watching CNN.
Pelosi was apparently watching CNN when John Dean made a suggestion to withhold the articles.
“Pelosi, according to an aide, had been mulling the tactic since she heard former Nixon White House counsel John Dean float the idea on CNN on Dec. 5. In the committee meeting, she added that she believed McConnell would be motivated to move. ‘Somebody said to me today that he may not even take up what we send. [But] then [Trump] will never be vindicated,’ she said, according to the aide in the room. ‘He will be impeached forever. Forever. No matter what the Senate does.’”
“After the vote, she announced that she did not plan to transmit the articles right away, saying she could not determine how to appoint House impeachment managers until the Senate decides on its rules for the trial.”
So she decided to listen to a disgraced former White House counsel instead of using her own brain. Read the rest of the story here.
