Group of House Democrats Pushing to Withhold Impeachment Articles from Senate to Gain Leverage in Trial: Report

Group of House Democrats Pushing to Withhold Impeachment Articles from Senate to Gain Leverage in Trial: ReportA group of House Democrats is urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to withhold articles of impeachment against President Trump from the Senate in order to gain leverage over the parameters of the Senate trial, the Washington Post reported Wednesday just hours before the House vote on impeachment.Representative Earl Blumenauer (D., Ore.) publicly floated on Wednesday the idea of withholding the articles until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees to allow testimony from witness the Democrats desire to hear."Who knows what would happen to augment the record?" Blumenauer said. "This ought to be able to play out…There’s no advantage to rushing this." Blumenauer asserted he had spoken to over 30 House Democrats who had expressed interest in the idea.Another House Democrat told the Post on condition of anonymity that representatives were discussing the idea of withholding the articles due to what they view as "serious concern about whether there will be a fair trial on the Senate side."A senior Democratic aide told the Post that the articles will be sent to the Senate only after Pelosi decides on impeachment managers to present the case for Trump's removal at trial.The House will vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against President Trump, one for obstruction of Congress and the other for abuse of power. The articles are expected to pass with a solid majority of Democrats and no Republican support.Withholding impeachment articles from the Senate may rankle moderate Democrats from swing districts that voted for Trump in 2016. Several of these Democrats have announced they will vote for impeachment only after weeks of deliberation and pushback from Trump-supporting constituents.

Trump has no right to withhold emergency funds from California: Pelosi

Trump has no right to withhold emergency funds from California: PelosiU.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday rebuked President Donald Trump for threatening to block disaster aid for California, a state recently ravaged by deadly, destructive wildfires whose mostly Democratic political leaders often spar with the Republican president. “How shocking it is that this president would say he’s going to withhold funding to meet the disaster needs of people in California,” said Pelosi, a Democrat representing a California district, referring to Trump’s tweet on Wednesday that he would stop the emergency funds until the state changes its forest and fire management. “Unless you have a different definition of what a disaster is and the needs for assistance, you have no right to withhold those funds,” Pelosi said at a news conference at the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
