The US is between a fantasy Standoff that argues between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “They both have solid lines in the sand. Someone had to give, “a recent reporter has declared.
There is, of course, nothing to “give.” Pelosi has no standing to dictate the terms of a Senate trial; No Constitution right
or political Leverage. Why she has put herself in a position that will ultimately end, one way or the other, with her appearance to McConnell is perplexing.
A new piece in Time magazine did not shed some light on the thought process behind Pelosi’s decision to refuse to hand over the treatise posts to a Senate that the majority do not want them to. One of the most interesting nuggets in the piece is not Pelosi-portrayed as brave risk-taker-received the bright idea from CNN; It is she specifically got it from felon notes John Dean, Nixon’s old White House lawyer. Now, Dean is often portrayed as a craving, the prosecutions expert treatise – it is true in the moderation he planned by Watergate Coverup, and then informed about everyone that he conspired with after they were arrested. His true expertise was cashing in criminality in the last 50 years.
Surely Pelosi, blessed with the political nature of preternatural, will not rely on Dean’s advice? Certainly Pelosi has not been browbeating into doing this by the podcast Bros and top talk on the most popular news network of American big cables?
Because whatever you do…
