For nearly a week so far, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has withheld articles of impeachment from being sent over to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate.
Now, former South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy is left wanting answers.
During a Fox News segment on Monday, Gowdy said that “most people are smart enough” to see right through Pelosi’s decision to stall the impeachment process waged against President Donald Trump.
Then he asked a critical question: “If [Trump] really is an existential threat to the republic, if he really has committed conduct that should result in his removal from office, then why would you not go ahead and send it on to the Senate?”
The former congressman is referring to the numerous times that House Democrats — like Reps. Schiff, Nadler, and Pelosi — said that impeaching Trump was a national emergency.
“The Constitution gives the House no role in deciding how this trial takes place,” Gowdy stated.
“It is exclusively within the providence of the Senate. I think most of my fellow citizens will see through this ‘let’s hurry up and impeach him and then sit on the indictment for god knows how long.’ I think most people are smart enough to see through that.”
The tug-of-war between Pelosi and McConnell will continue after the congressional break, where everyone heads home for the holiday season.
