On Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump sent out a blistering tweet against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, accusing her of quid pro quo — something Democrats accused the president of doing with Ukraine.
“Nancy Pelosi is looking for a Quid Pro Quo with the Senate. Why aren’t we Impeaching her?” Trump tweeted out.
Shortly after the tweet was published, Trump supporters began rallying around the “Impeach Pelosi” trend, with one even selling a shirt that reads “Impeach Pelosi” with a stunned-looking Pelosi as the “o” in her name.
The shirt’s purchase page says, “Nancy Pelosi, along with her Democratic, anti-Trump minions, insisted on expediting the impeachment of President Trump. Remember that? But when it came time to hand the matter over the U.S. Senate, Pelosi suddenly decided to buck the U.S. Constitution and refuse to give the president the fair trial in the Senate that he deserves, as the Founding Fathers intended.”
They continue: “Her refusal to hand over the impeachment articles because she wants something in exchange from Republicans in the Senate almost sounds like… you guessed it… QUID PRO QUO?”
Currently there is no time-table as to when Pelosi will assign managers to the articles of impeachment and transfer them to the hands of Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate.
Technically, she could stall for an indefinite amount of time.
