Graham Rips Pelosi, Says She Can’t ‘Be House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader at Same Time’
Biz Pac Review pointed out Senator Graham’s response to Pelosi’s dragging her feet and provided some reasons for her continued procrastination.
On Thursday, just one day after the House of Representatives voted to approve two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham warned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that any shenanigans would not be tolerated.
Washington Examiner’s Byron York suggested that it looks like Pelosi may drag her feet when it comes to delivering the articles to the Senate, or perhaps not do it at all.

It would appear that Graham is of the same mind as York, and made it clear to Pelosi that if she is thinking about doing such a thing, it would not be viewed favorably.
“If House Dems refuse to send Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for trial it would be a breathtaking violation of the Constitution, an act of political cowardice, and fundamentally unfair to President [Trump,]” he tweeted Thursday morning. “Not allowing the Senate to act on approved Articles of Impeachment becomes Constitutional extortion and creates chaos for the presidency. It also sets in motion a tremendous threat to our Constitutional system of checks and balances.”

“What is driving this crazy idea? Democrats have finally realized they have a very WEAK case which NEVER should have been brought forward to begin with,” he added. “Nancy Pelosi’s threat to refuse to transmit the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate for disposition is an incredibly dumb and dangerous idea. There is a reason one person can’t be Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader at the same time!”

Good that this has occurred to Senator Graham
We should keep in touch with Senator Graham to ensure that this deluded old woman does not get to act on her delusions. Sadly, since the main stream media has taken measures to hide the Speaker’s malfeasance, this woman’s megalomania could affect us for the worse.
However, as anyone who has watched just as few minutes of the main stream media can tell you (and — to be clear — I do limit my exposure to the brain-stifling tripe), the main stream media can be counteracted. We can counteract this tripe through continued education of the world in truth.
The informed, though, need to keep the Republicans accountable and the Democrats in check.
Lindsey Graham Promises Biden Investigation: ‘None Of Us Are Above Scrutiny’
The Daily Caller reports in a 15 December 2019 article that Senator Lindsey Graham has promised a Biden investigation.
Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham promised again Sunday to begin an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden because “none of us are above scrutiny.”
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has previously said he wants to assess any misconduct by Joe Biden in Ukraine. Graham repeated that pledge on CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” even though he called the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential race “one of the most decent people I have ever met in my life.”
“Here’s the deal: this whole process around Ukraine wreaks with politics. They have done everything but take a wrecking ball to Donald Trump and his family. We’re not going to live in a world where only Republicans get looked at,” Graham said.
He said his personal opinions about Biden can’t influence his actions as a lawmaker. “As much as I love Joe Biden and I’m sincere when I say that … it’s hard for me to tell my constituents to ignore the fact that Hunter Biden received $50,000 a month from a gas company in Ukraine run by the most corrupt person in Ukraine, and two months after the gas company was investigated, the prosecutor got fired,” Graham told CBS News.
The senator said he hopes there’s nothing to allegations that the Bidens acted improperly in Ukraine but that he needs to find out. President Donald Trump, among others, has accused Joe Biden of having a top Ukrainian prosecutor fired because he wanted to investigate corruption at Burisma.
“I hope I can look at the transcripts of the phone calls between Biden and the Ukraine … and say there is nothing there. These are legitimate concerns about what happened in the Ukraine. I love Joe Biden, but none of us are above scrutiny. I’d like to knock all this off and get back on governing the country,” Graham said.

Yes, none of us are above investigation. That includes Democrats on all levels.
Democrats who have broken campaign finance laws (like Tlaib and Omar) need to be investigated. Democrats like Menendez need more than a censure for bribery. Democrats like Schiff (assuming he did not break laws by taking Rep. Nunes’ phone records) need to be investigated to the degree he baselessly investigated others. In fact, Democrats at all levels, especially those who continually show themselves on talk shows and seem to want to step onto the national stage, should answer for involvement in nefarious events.
Pelosi a laughing stock to the world
Tim Scott Blasts ‘Wacky’ House Impeachment Process — ‘Pelosi Is Not Taking It Seriously’
Breitbart uses a 28 December 2019 article to point out the musings of Tim Scott on San Fran Nan.
Friday during an interview on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) lobbied Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) not to allow House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to exert influence over the U.S. Senate regarding what he described as the “wacky” impeachment process.
“The wacky House process is just a joke. And unfortunately, for one of the most important and consequential decisions the House could have made to impeach the President, you would expect an expeditious process for the Senate to start the process, but it’s not happened,” he said. “It’s not happened because Pelosi is not taking it seriously. And frankly, she is now concerned that the terrible process in the House will be invalidated by the Senate, because without any question, having watched that process, it’s hard to understand why we were even in the impeachment process at all.”

Yes, we might need to prove this is not a Banana Republic
Proving that America has not permanently slipped into a permanent might be an event, because getting back to normal will not only involve making certain that law starts being applied to Democrats — it will also involve dishing out some of the Democrat antics on the Democrats (with a similar lack of consequences that smash-the-drives Hillary, Schiff-for-brains, runway-meeting Lynch, Fast-and-Furious Holder, and others escaped). Until then, conservatives had better start their own resistence.
