    The Senate would try a potus on impeachment charges.....without the charges? How exactly would that work, Constitutionally?

    What we can look forward to is McConnell reversing course on following the Clinton impeachment rules as soon as the Senate trial begins.

I think Pelosi got as much mileage out of her bit if theater as she was ever going to get, which isn’t much. It was a dumb ploy to begin with and really discounted the seriousness she pretended the process had.
    That would be awkward - conducting a trial on indictments that they haven't received and those who wrote them not on hand to present them. I suspect that was bluster and frustration.

    Or even logically.

    While I think surely they would do it if there was an advantage to it, I don't see the advantage.

    Basically, imagine a court trying a defendant without an indictment.

    Where did you read about a thing like that, Infowars?
    The above post is a reflection of my great and unmatched wisdom. Please revere it.

    Yesterday, she pronounced she'll send them over when she's "ready". Wonder what suddenly made Nancy ready? Sounds like pressure from those in her own party convinced her that she had better stop stalling, crap on the pot or get off!
    My guess is that Donald or one of his surrogates has held the SOTU over her head.

    McConnell planned to join a resolution to dismiss if Nancy did not send over the articles by next week. Actually this is a win for McConnell because looks like he forced Nancy's hand to finally cave and submit.

    It’s a look that trump’s base will like, but it won’t be appreciated by anybody else.
