(Tea Party PAC) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be feeling rather proud of herself for getting President Trump impeached, even if the charges are ridiculously flimsy. After all, her efforts to remove the president from office will not go unnoticed by her overlords in the Democratic Party and the folks who vote left and have been dying to see Trump punished for beating Hillary.
However, she might want to think twice about uncorking a bottle of champaign, as Sen. Josh Hawley has just introduced a measure in Congress that could bring the whole fiasco crumbling down to the ground.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said Thursday he will introduce legislation to dismiss the Democrats’ impeachment trial, calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) withholding of the articles of impeachment an “abuse of the Constitution.”
Sen. Hawley, a former Missouri attorney general, said he will introduce a bill on Monday to dismiss the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump because Democrats have yet to send the articles of impeachment to Congress’s upper chamber.
“Dems said impeachment was URGENT. Now they don’t want to have a trial, because they have no evidence,” Sen. Hawley tweeted. “In real world, if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed. So on Monday, I will introduce measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution”:

The Missouri conservative claimed his legislation would expose the Democrats’ cynical move to oust the president, claiming that impeachment amounts to an “abuse of the Constitution.”
“This will expose Dems’ circus for what it is: a fake impeachment, abuse of the Constitution, based on no evidence. If Dems won’t proceed with trial, bogus articles should be dismissed and @realDonaldTrump fully cleared,” Sen. Hawley added.

Since House Democrats moved to impeach the president in December, House Speaker Pelosi has yet to send the two articles of impeachment to the Senate, worrying that Senate Republicans will quickly move to dismiss the impeachment trial. The articles of impeachment charge that President Trump abused the office of the presidency and obstructed Congress. “So far we haven’t seen anything that looks fair to us,” she said in December.
Hawley’s contention echoes Harvard law Professor Alan Dershowitz’s reasoning that Pelosi’s withholding of the articles of impeachment is an “abuse of power” and an “obstruction of the Senate.”
Dershowitz said in December:
If he has been impeached, the Senate has to start its trial as soon as they choose to,” Dershowitz continued. “Remember, the Senate is the sole judge of guilty or innocence of impeachment. And so the Democrats can’t have it both ways. They can’t sound the one hand — to the public we are saying he is impeached, but for the Senate, we’re saying he is not impeached. You know what I say? This is obstruction of the Senate — exactly the same charge that made against the president.
“This is abuse of power from exactly the same charge they made against the president. It is wrong constitutionally. It is wrong morally. And it is wrong politically,” he added.
The impeachment brought about by the left has been part of the plan for the Democratic Party ever since Donald Trump got elected. If you don’t believe that’s true just ask Rep. Al Green who has admitted as such in numerous interviews and chats.
This isn’t about justice. It’s not about protecting the Constitution. It’s about destroying the voting system that exists, overturning the will of the people who chose their president fair and square, and telling individuals in the flyover states that they do not matter.
It’s more important now than ever to keep pushing back against this coup and protecting our election system.
