nearvideo President Trump slams Nancy Pelosi over impeachment
Charges in limbo as the house withholds articles; reports rich Edson.
CAPITOL HILL – the house of representatives work, had evening for the year early last Thursday. Almost all of the legislators escaped to the train station or the airport. The Senate was stranded in a lengthy quorum call the Capitol Rotunda. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., graced to explain to the Senate around 6 p.m., he and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, remained about on a cul-de-SAC, such as the implementation of a removal procedure.
And then, near the Will Rogers Statue, just a few steps from the house floor, were three helpers, house speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Two clutched huge bills, ready for President Trump’s signature. Another pushed a shopping cart filled with a stash of legislation. Loading of the trolley was one of the “mini-buses” of the Congress had just approved a spending measure that helped stave off a government shutdown. They were wheeling the measures from the House floor, back to the speaker’s office or to the Senate.
Watching the procession, someone asked me if the house had secretly adopted, the measurement of the announcement of the indictment-Manager. It was possible, the articles in the indictment, the Board, the Senate tied the cart loaded?
That was not the case. The house would have to vote for a secondary resolution actually shipping the indictment, the Senate, and the name of impeachment-Manager. The house would be in session a handful of times in the course of the next few weeks, in short pro forma sessions, in which the body would be gavel for a few seconds and gavel right back out. But, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., announced last Thursday, the house would not conduct any votes until Jan. 7.
The impeachment articles are not going anywhere. Pelosi still clutched, in an effort to secure the Democrats, ” the procedure calls for a dismissal.
And with no planned not to vote in the house, the impeachment article, the heading, the of the Senate in the foreseeable future. In 1998, the house a resolution for the deployment of an indictment, the Senate approved the accused only a few minutes after the house, the then-President Clinton.

This was unknown Terrain. A few weeks ago, Fox News asked someone well-versed in the Congress, the parliamentary procedure, if it has not been possible to restrain the impeachment articles to the Senate. The answer was “Yes”. But, the source scoffed, in view of the above, it would be almost absurd to have to go through the impeachment process – and then not send the article to the Senate for trial. Also older house Democrats indicated on Fox News last week they thought the house would send the articles to the Senate the same.
It will be absurd, but that is where we are. All of Washington is now in suspended animation. And, this is where it seems the things will remain until the beginning of next year.
