    Imagine if a district attorney charged you with wrongdoing, and then let the charges hang over you indefinitely?

    That's the stunt Nancy Pelosi has been pulling, sitting on the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump since Dec. 18.

    Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., accuses House Dems of "trying to hold these articles over the head of the president," denying him a chance to be acquitted.

    Graham says "if we don't get the articles this week," then Senators should deem the impeachment articles "delivered to the Senate" so the trial can begin.

    Monday, freshman Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., asked what's to stop Pelosi from holding the articles indefinitely. "If Americans are sick of this impeachment saga, this partisan circus now," think how they'll feel months, or even a year, from now.

    Hawley is proposing a 25-day deadline. If the House fails to deliver the articles and name a legal team by then, the Senate can vote to dismiss the charges.

    Hawley and Graham are rightfully fed up, but Graham's proposal is the better one. The president and the nation deserve a verdict, not just a dismissal.

    To get it done, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell will have to drop the fiction that the Senate is still a place for bipartisan civility. It's time for a reality check.

    In a previous era when senators prided themselves on bipartisanship, the Senate established a requirement for a 2/3 majority to consider any rules changes. Republicans and Democrats would have to agree. That can't happen this time. Republicans have a bare 53 votes, and no Democrat is likely to support a rules change.

    That's wise because the key issue facing senators is whether the charges against Trump are impeachable offenses. For the first time in history, the House impeached a president without accusing him of breaking any law. Democrats insist they can nail Trump for "exercising power with a corrupt purpose, even if his action would otherwise be permissible" -- putting political advantage above the national interest.

    By that definition, every politician is guilty. Expect a majority of senators, including some Democrats, to see the danger of such flimflam charges.

    By the end of January, the Senate will have voted to acquit Trump. Pelosi and her party will be the big losers. They impeached a president for partisan gain, and then tried to delay the trial in a desperate search for evidence to make the charges stick. Voters will judge them harshly in November.

    ------------

    The electorate is NOT stupid.....no matter what bullshit she and the rest of the party of INFANTICIDE tries to push down our throats, and watching and laughing at our low IQ ABNORMALS....THIS EVENT.....More than any other will drive a huge wedge between American patriots and demonRAT/Socialists!

    The sooner the senate acquits Trump the better it is.
    Trump is doing a great job with the economy, and all the MSM has on is the impeachment bullshit.

    I don't know why the Senators pulled off the campaign trail for this nonsense haven't trapped her in a hallway closet and beaten the stuffing out of her.

    Don't worry. Once they impeach Pence, Install Pelosi as Emperor and Plant The Islamic Flag on The White House, life will be perfect.

    As I recall, the Senate was not even in session for most of the 'delay'.

    He will go down in history as the third president in history to be impeached and there is nothing you can do about it.
