She won't bring it up for a vote until she's locked in enough votes to pass it.
I dunno. Despite her claims that impeachment was necessary and she's so very "prayerful," I suspect there's a part of her that wants this not to get to a Senate trial. She may be hoping or even begging 20 of her dimtard shock-troops to vote something other than "yes."
Some must throw themselves under the bus.
Yeah but AOC would accuse her of being a racist again.
The Dems are phooked either way.
She can't delay. She's on a timetable, has to pass a new spending bill, and the Xmas recess is upon us.
There's no winning for the Dems ... only more losing.
There are actually 55 plus seats up for grabs that are in districts Trump won by 8 points or better. Dems are scared shitless!!
Not according to Pelosi who claims the necessity to impeach Trump transcends partisan politics (because they can't beat him). Of course she also said just months ago that it must be "compelling and overwhelmingly bipartisan."
Evidently she isn't familiar with the truth.
I'm going to laugh when Wednesday comes and goes... then Christmas break.....
A second Dem has announced he will vote no and says others will also:
Peterson says he'll likely vote against impeachment
Peterson, a conservative Democrat who has not yet announced whether he'll seek a 16th term representing western Minnesota's 7th District, said he expects four or five other Democrats will do the same.
With the taboo broken, even more may decide to break ranks and I suspect Pelosi won't mind a bit.
In fact, she may well be encouraging more defections in the hope that the House charade will not result in a Senate trial. They ran up their impeachment flag and no one saluted.
Knowing what they know today if Dem's could go back in time they would avoid impeachment like the plague.
