Mitch MicConnell has the opportunity to turn the tables on Nancy Pelosi. Over at American Thinker, Ronald Tinnell posted an interesting article asking the question: “What if Mitch Mirrored Nancy?” It’s a neat little piece, offering a somewhat tongue in cheek response to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as she refuses to send the Articles of impeachment over to the Senate for trial.
As we all know, and is noted in Tinell’s article, Speaker Pelosi is refusing to send the Impeachment Articles to the Senate until she is assured that the trial will be “fair.” Like most of us at this point, Tinnell is obviously thinking, “Pot, meet Kettle.” He then wonders what would happen if McConnell responded in kind
McConnell might say something like this: “The Senate cannot accept an impeachment grounded in hearsay, produced by an unfair process, and making such flimsy accusations.”
He then well and truly predicted the Leftists’ likely response:
If he did, I’m sure the howls of indignation from the left would be deafening.
Mr. Tinnell then goes on to say that he’s not really advocating for such a move.
I’m not saying that McConnell would or should do this. He would have to be as crazy as some Democrats I could name to pull a stunt like this. Nevertheless, it seems to me that such an action would be every bit as legitimate as what Pelosi is doing.
Here is where I part ways with this excellent and quite humorous piece. I think McConnell should do this…and publicly. My belief is that given the irrationality of the Leftists, along with their wailing and gnashing of teeth, they would immediately send the articles over to the Senate and dare McConnell to reject them. Of course, he wouldn’t. He’d immediately get the trial going and quickly absolve President Trump of any wrong-doing. I think the leftists are just deranged enough to fall for this gambit. Shhhh! Don’t say anything!
