President Trump seems to agree with my sentiments, posting, “Nancy Pelosi is looking for a Quid Pro Quo in the Senate. Why aren’t we impeaching her?”
Nancy Pelosi is looking for a Quid Pro Quo with the Senate. Why aren’t we Impeaching her?

Ok, let’s assume — hypothetically — that the Democrats are right with regard to everything about President Donald Trump. He bribed the Ukrainian president, abused his executive power, yada-yada-yada.
If President Trump committed an act of quid pro quo with the Ukrainian government, how is that any different than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s handling of the articles of impeachment with the Senate?
Let me explain.
Pelosi knows there is absolutely no way that Trump will be impeached in the Republican-controlled Senate, but she does know that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would like to have the impeachment articles in order to exonerate Trump during the trial.
So, Pelosi is currently holding onto the only measure by which Trump can be exonerated in exchange that a “fair” trial be had.
Remember, Pelosi said this just a few days ago: “We’re not sending [the articles] tonight because it’s difficult to determine who the managers would be until we see the arena in which we will be participating,” adding, “So far, we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us, so hopefully it will be fairer, and when we see what that is, we’ll send our managers.”
That’s right. The House speaker is attempting to bribe McConnell into hosting a trial that makes Democrats look good, in exchange for receiving the articles.
How would that be any different than allegations against Trump that he withheld military aide in exchange for an investigation into curious Biden/Burisma connections?
Answer? It’s not any different.
Actually, the only difference is that Trump’s quid pro quo never happened and Pelosi’s quid pro quo is happening right before our very eyes.
