Speaker Nancy Pelosi is both obstructing the Senate’s constitutional role in an impeachment process as well abusing her power in doing so.
Last night the Speaker of the House of Representatives declared: “We cannot name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side, and I would hope that that will be soon,” Pelosi said.
“So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us, so hopefully it will be fairer and when we see what that is, we’ll send our managers.”
In other words, Pelosi will not do her constitutional duty in passing the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate unless she is convinced the process will go the way her Democrat colleagues want it to.
In doing so, she is arguably abusing her power and obstructing Congress: the two things she and her Democrat colleagues impeached President Trump over.
