VIDEO: Jarrett Suggests McConnell Proceed With Impeachment Trial in Senate Without Pelosi’s Articles

Appearing on “Hannity,” Gregg Jarrett suggested how Mitch McConnell might get around Nancy Pelosi’s stalling of the impeachment process by proceeding with a trial without her.

Jarrett says “Mitch McConnell shouldn’t be subjecting himself to the extortion of Nancy Pelosi.”

Gregg Jarrett:

The framers never envisioned a stunt pulled by a speaker of the House like Nancy Pelosi holding onto articles of impeachment. Two decades ago it was sent over immediately, within minutes.

There was a vote to convey and transmit it. The Constitution is actually silent about that. It doesn’t say that the Senate has to wait until it’s transmitted. It’s simply a Senate rule.

Mitch McConnell shouldn’t be subjecting himself to the extortion of Nancy Pelosi. He can, beginning in January, simply alter the rule or eliminate it entirely and set a date for an impeachment trial.

Mitch McConnell can say, ‘Well, if you’re not going to send them over, I don’t care. We’re not going to deal with it. Nancy Pelosi, though, could then use it as a cudgel to hit Trump over the head at every turn — add things to it.

Simply change the rule, hold a trial, do it. Do it on your own terms.
