Pelosi Accuses Mitch McConnell Of 'Cover-Up' As Impeachment Crawls Toward Senate
Now that her stalling tactics have backfired, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is touring the media to promote conspiracy theories about her bogus impeachment.
On Sunday morning, Pelosi appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with longtime Clinton family stooge George Stephanopoulos where she launched the talking point of the week that Mitch McConnell is involved in a cover-up.
The 79-year-old leader of the resistance can’t get over the fact that she is not in charge of the Senate and that McConnell outfoxed the self-proclaimed “master legislator” when he refused to budge over her attempts at extortion.

According to Madame Speaker who struggled with her normal verbal tics and bizarre facial contortions:
“I’m telling you that he signed-on on Thursday, to a resolution, dismiss the case. Dismissing is a cover-up. Dismissing is a cover-up. If they want to go that route again, the senators who are thinking now about voting for witnesses or not, they will have to be accountable for not having a fair trial,”
But what she neglected to mention is that in addition to McConnell’s refusal to allow her to influence a trail that it will follow the parameters established when Bill Clinton was impeached, something that Pelosi condemned at the time as being anti-democratic.
Pelosi also continued to defend her refusal to send the articles of impeachment after the big pre-Christmas rush that had the Beltway establishment singing joy to the world despite the growing consensus that it was a monumental strategic blunder.
Via The Hill:
ABC’s “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked the Speaker on Sunday if she had any “second thoughts” about withholding the articles from the upper chamber.
“No, no, no,” Pelosi responded, adding that she thought the delay “produced a very positive result” in allowing more unredacted documents to surface and giving former national security adviser John Bolton the opportunity to agree to testify if subpoenaed.
She said the withholding the articles helped with “more importantly, raising the profile of the fact that we need to have witnesses and documentation and if we don’t that it’s a cover up.”
After Pelosi was gone, and the ABC panel was chewing the fat, Rachel Bade of the Washington Post pointed out that the Speaker was engaging in spin over what was a ‘failed strategy’ with the delay.

Pelosi has yet to officially transmit the articles and may not do so until she has had another several days to hit the late shows with their smarmy liberal hosts to gaslight Americans over her miscalculation.
If it wasn’t for conspiracies, Democrats would have nothing at all.
