Kimberley Strassel is onto Nancy Pelosi.

Why are Democrats pretending they want a Senate trial at all? They know it will not go well for them, and when it’s tossed out Trump will not only be relentless on Twitter, but he will use it for his campaign all but nuking whatever is left of their presidential dreams.

It makes far more sense for them to draw this out and keep it ‘rolling’ …

From the Wall Street Journal:

Mrs. Pelosi has understood from the start that the inevitable outcome was acquittal. There won’t be 20 Republican votes to remove Mr. Trump from office. So why hasten the president’s vindication? If the goal of this exercise all along was to damage Mr. Trump’s prospects for re-election, why wouldn’t Democrats want to hold an unconsummated impeachment over his head for as long as politically possible?

Think of it as “rolling” impeachment. Every day the Senate doesn’t hold a trial, Mrs. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are free to argue that the process is rigged. They are already claiming that the Senate’s Republican “jurors” have abandoned impartiality, are actively working with Mr. Trump to cover up his crimes, and are afraid to hold a trial.

She continued:

Senate Republicans should schedule a trial immediately. Mr. McConnell has a majority to set the rules, and he has history, the Constitution and fairness on his side. Republicans also have a duty to spare the nation from the damaging precedent Mrs. Pelosi is setting. They can end the farce of endless, rolling, partisan impeachment.


All of this has.

Past time for them to grow up.

And THAT’S the real issue here.

Not that Democrats seem to care.
