Nancy Pelosi is a Badass

(Hat tip: Scissorhead Skinny-D)

I love this:

“Voicing concern about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s willingness to hold a fair trial, Pelosi announced for the first time that she might not, in fact, be in a rush to send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate. She said instead she wanted to hear more about how the Senate planned to conduct the trial first.

“We cannot name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side,” Pelosi said. (Impeachment managers are members of the House who will serve, essentially, as prosecutors against Trump in the Senate trial. And to be clear, Pelosi technically can name them now; she is making a strategic decision not to do it yet.)”

Draw it out, Nancy, make it excruciating, and get more evidence and win-over more of the public.

“It’s up to the senators to make their own decision working together” on how to run the trial, Pelosi said. “Hopefully in recognition that there are witnesses the president withheld from us, there are documents the president withheld from us, and I would hope that information would be available to go to a trial, to the next step.”

“Asked if she could guarantee she’d send over the impeachment articles to the Senate at all, Pelosi said, “That would have been our intention, but we’ll see what happens over there.” She also said she hopes she’ll get more information from the Senate “soon.”

I believe that is called, “Checkmate,” #MoscowMitch.

    Yeah, Nancy; push the trial closer to Election Day, when the details will bury Turtleface and his Rethug cohorts at the ballot box.

    And he had the brass cohones to claim that he cooperated and gave the committee(?) all the information they asked for, a big fate lie.
    And also continually brings up the “transcript” that is not a transcript, another Big Lie.
    I am detecting a pattern, here, which might be effected by old bedside reading habits and by Miller’s involvement in the binkers letter.

    I think Moscow Mitch has met his match. She’ll step on his balls and crush them completely if he’s not more careful. It’s clear she’s already “put pressure” on him, shall we say.

    This statement of hers is epic:

    “Asked if she could guarantee she’d send over the impeachment articles to the Senate at all, Pelosi said, “That would have been our intention, but we’ll see what happens over there.”

    Wow, just wow.

    And there’s NOTHING Moscow Mitch or anyone else in that august body of reptilians,er, senators can do to compel the House to move forward. How’s it feel, Mitch? Nervous much?

    My sister and I watched Nancy’s proclamation last night that the House would, for the present, be playing DC Hold ‘Em (h/t to dBetty Cracker at BalloonJuice), then we sat there for a moment.
    Sis: “And that’s why they’re ascared of her.”
