Speaker Pelosi declined immediately to send to the Senate the articles of impeachment that she rammed through the House yesterday. Clearly, that spectacle isn’t about removing Donald Trump from office. Rather, it’s an act of political warfare, intended to damage him in the coming presidential election.
Should Senators repudiate this prosecution of the President – let alone acquit him – the electoral benefits of the Trump impeachment would be greatly diminished. Delaying such an opportunity for Mr. Trump to receive, at last, due process is as cynical as it is unjust.
Such machinations, moreover, affirm a meme the President Tweeted after the House voted last night: “In reality, they’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way.”
The Senate must be promptly sent the articles of impeachment and consign them to where they belong – on the ash-heap of history.
