The Case For Charging Pelosi With “Obstruction Of Congress”

(Tea Party PAC) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having perhaps realized when it was too late that the Senate will not convict Trump, has decided she’s going to sit on the articles of impeachment against the president until the Senate meets her demands.

In other words, says Joel Pollack of Breitbart, she is guilty of “obstruction of Congress.”

Unlike Trump, however, she has absolutely no constitutional basis for refusing the request of one of the two houses that form the legislative branch.

Pollack writes:

For weeks, Democrats have insisted that the president needed to be impeached and removed from office as soon as possible. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), in his House Intelligence Committee report, declared: “Given the proximate threat of further presidential attempts to solicit foreign interference in our next election, we cannot wait to make a referral until our efforts to obtain additional testimony and documents wind their way through the courts.”

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) argued at the December 9 hearing on that report: “We agree that when the elections themselves are threatened by enemies foreign or domestic, we cannot wait until the next election to address the threat.” He made the point again during the House debate on impeachment Wednesday: “The threat is urgent. If we do not act — now — what happens next will be our responsibility as well as his.”

And Speaker Pelosi herself, opening House debate on the articles of impeachment Wednesday, declared: “If we do not act now, we would be derelict in our duty.”

Then, just hours later, the House Democrats got in line and impeached the president. Yet, Pelosi told journalists that she wasn’t prepared to deliver the articles of impeachment that the Democrats so proudly voted on, claiming that she hasn’t yet decided who the Housse “managers” of the trial could be.

Both she and her counterpart in the Senate, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are both whining that the Republicans won’t offer a “fair trial,” which is hilarious considering the impeachment proceedings in the House was just about as unfair as it possibly gets.

Even Schumer, however, in calling for additional witnesses to appear before the Senate, told CNN as recently as Monday that “We’re not trying to be dilatory. We’re trying to have the kind of justice America is known for, which is swift but fair justice.”

But now Pelosi is having second thoughts.

How is this not obstruction?

It is not clear why the Senate needs to wait: Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution says clearly: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”

Regardless of the formal transmission of documents, the Constitution allows the Senate to hold a trial as soon as an impeachment takes place in the House.

But Pelosi is claiming otherwise, apparently relying on the advice of left-wing law professors and the support of liberal legal analysts on cable news. She is no longer rushing the process; she is now obstructing it, knowing that there is no two-thirds majority for removal in the Senate, which may even dismiss the charges as unconstitutional.

Unlike Trump, who can cite text and precedent in resisting subpoenas, Pelosi’s delay is unlawful and unprecedented.

Nancy Pelosi is therefore guilty of obstruction of Congress.

She will fail, but just as the Democrats have told us for weeks that the president can be impeached for “attempting” to do something they consider wrong, Pelosi, too, can be held accountable to attempting to undermine the Constitution.

When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell loses patience and moves to dismiss the impeachment, he should add another charge — against Pelosi, for contempt.

Amen to that!

  1. Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff have been Obstructing Congress, and Obstruction Executive Branch of the government. Pelosi, has created a coup de tat she is know president and it continues. When is the DOJ indict Hillary Clinton, and Barak Obama, et all.

  2. Before we go forward with this there is something else that needs to be done. Nancy Pelosi needs to be mentally evaluated. The woman’s speech clearly demonstrates Dementia. Not only slurred words but her inability to present a clear line of thought. Also, her temperament is becoming unstable in her responses to not only the press core but to her constituents as well. The woman is not in control of her faculties and she is demonstrating this through her obsessions, not just in the impeachment arena but for power itself.

  3. You weren’t fair to the Republicans and the President in the House, so why should we be fair to you in the Senate. Personally, Chuck stick it where the sun don’t shine

  4. Nancy Pelosi’s crimes are real in obstructing the Senate and not allowing them to continue, no matter the outcome. And then, the fraud of this whole process and the injustice of not doing the job their constituents elected them to do. Let alone the money wasted on this whole circus!

  5. al sharpton jr,
    Don’t say anything the lack of mastery of the English Language. You made a grammatical error yourself! I won’t be so kind as to tell you because you are obviously not intelligent enough to know you made the error. Maybe you should
    go back to school.

    Don’t so hastily criticize others next time. Makes you look stupid.

  6. Nancy is long over due for a job transfer; she has a mental problem most of know as TDS and she can no longer function as a responsible human being.
    Put her in a “home”/prison and put her in charge of what she is qualified for… cleaning the toilets!

  7. Send the FBI squads to their homes, round them up and throw them in jail. Just like they did with Roger Stone. Oh and have CNN there to record it. Shameful acts that will live in infamy for trying to undo the will of 63 million Americans.

  8. Obstruction of Congress,the American people, everything that could have been accomplished had that psycho not been speaker, common sense,etc. She has obstructed a LOT of things!

  9. Can she be LOCKED up over this Constitutional violation? . . . Remove her immediately! THEN charge her for SEDITION and TREASON. Get that worthless TWIT out of Congress. Team Trump and her allies 2020.

  10. Pelosi should be charged with contempt of congress. I am disgusted with our so-called “leaders” in the House. The Democrats that still have a tiny bit of common sense, should call out their insane “leaders”. Those people have lost their minds!

  11. What should happen here is that Justice John Roberts (who will preside over the trial in the Senate) should act like every other judge in a criminal case and say to Pelosi, “You have until January 6th at noon to have your case on my desk, with no preconditions, or I will dismiss it.”

    • I would like to know who is paying the $40 Million for the Mueller report, and $33 Million for this sham impeachment! I’m afraid it won’t be Pelosi, Schmitt and Nadler but tax payers!

  12. Dems should have impeached Biden for withholding aid to Ukraine. But they’re thinking of nominating a man who did more clearly what they’re accusing Trump of doing. If they wanted someone clean, they’d nominate Tulsi Gabbard, instead they marginalized her as quickly as possible.

  13. It’s time for Mitch McConnell to stop giving Pelosi her way. He now runs the show. Either she gives the impeachment over to the senate or she should be charged with obstruction of congress. And while they’re at it the swamp rat and her cohorts should be charged with treason for trying to hide Biden’s monetary connection to the Ukraine. It’s time for our Senate to take control of the democrats accusations.

  14. This impeachment is the most ridiculous event I’ve ever seen in my 62 years of life as a American citizen there was no factual evidence it was all hearsay was completely partisan Adam Schiff ,Nancy Pilosi ,Jerry Nadler need to swear in and give testimony in the Senate trial they should all be tested for mind altering drugs also Nancy Pilosi half the time acts like a babiling drug addict Adam Schiff acts like he’s on drugs also and cannot focus on reality at all .I have seen America doing better right now under Donald J. Trump’s administration than any other time in my 62 years of life as an American Donald J.Trump is doing everything he promised and even more the Democrat’s cannot stand this and they have done everything they could to destroy the best thing that has ever happened to America and the people in America under the Donald J.Trump
    administration I pray to God that he will direct the paths of Donald J.Trump and his administration and the American people will open their eyes to this coruption that’s trying to take our duly elected president out of office

  15. Yes please prosecute her and now. She is committing what her rotten party has impeached Trump for- OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS! I want to see her ass out of Congress for good along with the criminals- Schiff and Nadler.

  16. It is amusing to see a bunch of uneducated, ignorant high school dropouts (like those that patronize this forum) make reckless comments about what they think the law is or what the Constitution says. The Constitution does not NOT say anything about compelling the Speaker of the House to immediately send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate. You are all just flat out stupid.

    • What the constitution and the BILL OF RIGHTS does say MR SHARPTON is that every individual in this country including the president, Is that they are entitled to a SPEEDY AND FAIR TRIAL with the opportunity to defend themselves. You sir are WRONG you and PELOSI DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, Charges have been brought and the president is entitled to defend himself against those charges .The House rules STATE THAT ONCE IMPEACHMENT CHARGES HAVE BEEN PASSED BY THE HOUSE THEY MUST BE PRESENTED TO THE SENATE FOR JUDICATION THATS FACT NOT FICTION. You sir might do a little research learn THE FACTS BEFORE
      MAKING COMMENTS ABOUT SOMETHING YOU OBVIOUSLY ARE NOT INFORMED ABOUT.THE Senate decides its own rules NOT PELOSI OR HOUSE MEMBERS. We have three equal branches of government NOT PELOSI AND THE HOUSE,

    • Says a “high school dropout ‘patronizer’ of this forum????” Talk about stupid!

      Not, not!!!!

      To paraphrase Forest Gump, Stupid is as Stupid claims, Stupid!!!

      But LIKE the good leftist that I’M NOT, I’ll appropriate “the high (moral) ground” by disclaiming that I saw the potential of YOUR claiming MY stupidity by association, and CALLING YOU OUT on it BEFORE YOU could.

      Please, for EVERYone’s sake, just take your ball and go home, Leroy. Yo’ mama calling you!!

    • I would like to know who is paying the $40 Million for the Mueller report, and $33 Million for this sham impeachment! I’m afraid it won’t be Pelosi, Schmitt and Nadler but tax payers!

  17. The Democrats are Total Evil and want things done their way and nothing BUT!!!! They are so Wrong it’s Unreal, and doesn’t need a COURT to figure That OUT!!!

  18. Not just PELOSI aka POLLOCK but PENCIL NECK SCHIFF, FAKE TEARS SCHUMER , HIPPOCAMPUS NADLER , and MAD MAX WATER’S should be IMPEACHED and removed from CONGRESS and charged with OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS , OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE , TREASON and FRAUDULENT IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS ! That should put them away for about = 365 + YEARS.

    PRISON for

  19. The House of Representatives have, by Article 1 of the Constitution, completed their investigation and the impeachment of the Russian and China asset sitting in the Oval Office. Now the disastrous Senate wants to reverse the impeachment and allow our lost democracy to become a monarchy or dictatorship.

    • Hey ! Little BOY BLUE, get UR FACTS STRAIGHT ! The ONLY One’s that are OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE , OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS AND FRAUDULENT IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS is these DERANGED and DEPLORABLE DEMOCRATS that U call UR COMRADES IN ARM’S !!

    • Connie, I am going to give you a little advice. Go to your bathroom, pull down your pants, and remove your head from your ass. That is the only cure for your inane post and feelings. You must be deep into the TDS.

  20. “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it”…

    “We have to Impeach to find out if it flies”…

    Translation:

    WE HAVE TO GET THIS DONE BEFORE THE PEOPLE FIGURE OUT THE DESTRUCTION!!!

  21. The bull-shit is over for the Democratic Party,now it’s time for justice to take over and put Pelosi,Schummer,Nadler and Schiff on trial and have them impeached from Congress. The attorney general should do everything within his responsibility to bring them to trial ASAP. The American public is done with listing to their treason’s lies and cover-ups. Hopefully their impeachment will be the first step in cleaning out the Washington Swamp!

  22. The speaker of the house is the speaker of the house. She is not the speaker of the Senate too. Pelosi should have never started the impeachment since she knew it would not pass the Senate. The founders created one of the best systems of checks and balances. So Pelosi will not succeed in undermining the founders principles.

    • Her actions wouldn’t be necessary if McConnell was a responsible legislator. And what would you know, Amato, about the founder’s principles? You’re just an ignorant immigrant yourself. Why don’t you join the Mafia or do something with a purpose other than kissing a rich lunatics ass?

  23. Oh Chopper Pilot so true so true. Obama took this country down in the years he was in the White House. He made a mockery of the United States and Americans. He was Soros puppet and is still taking orders. I completely do not trust the Democratic Party because of the lies they have told. Americans please stand for your country. We only have one party because the Democrats have gone around the looney bend. Congress should all be IMPEACHED!! Come on Supreme Court if your are the highest court in the land take the needed action against all Democrats. In the last eight years we have seen dirty, dirty politics!!! Power, Power, Power is all they care about and of course all the money they have suctioned off the American people.

  24. Agree if Palosi holds the document for more then a set number of working days the Senate should declare the impeachment null and void due to obstruction of congress by the House Speaker, Nancy Palosi. Let the S.O.B.’s chew on that for the next 11 months. Still then they (Dem’s. ) likely will start the whole thing all over again calming it’s Repubs. obstructing the process but I think America will see through this sham.

  25. Pelosi and the entire Democrat party Congressional delegation is corrupt – no ethics, disdains the Constitution, and sole motivation the past 3 1/2 years is to remove Trump from office. As Jonathan Turly said during the impeachment hearings, Congress is guilty of obstructing justice. Sadly, the Democrats don’t give a whit.

    • Agree here too with John Lebo. One thing dems are not considering is loosing control of the House next Nov. could allow for impeachment charges to be filed against about a dozen or more of those running this scam as well as others like the “squad” for material support and aid to terrorism. All these dems are standing right next to the fan so when “it” hits the fan they get all the splatter.

  26. Pelosi lost it when she was forced by her Hugh left wing members to
    open this Farce of a trial in the House.
    Now she has no idea what to do since she knows it was based on false
    premises and will be defeated in the Senate. Meanwhile each day is
    a gift to our President as more and more Americans change their vote
    FOR THE PRESIDENT IN 2020, WORSE they lose more and more potential
    members in 2020.

  27. It’s ironic that the Democratic party has and is doing exactly what they are accusing President Trump and his administration has done. When, in fact, Trump has done nothing wrong. He has proof of innocence. They refuse to acknowledge this. Further charging the demented public base.

    • Mike Butler – another champion speller. Not too good at grammar either. You’re probably a Russian or a Mexican.

    • And trying to destroy the United States of America. Treason is what he needs to be charged with along with the fool dems.

    • Right on Pilot and Brad. I’m really hoping Barr will crack the deep state wide open all the way up to Obama.

    • Back that comment up to the early 1960’s when they successfully ‘impeached’ President Kennedy with the mos expedient method possible.

      And again…. ‘russian interference’ was involved.
