“Special Report” anchor Bret Baier said on Thursday that impeachment politics may have turned against House Democrats in key states, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to state that she may wait to send articles of impeachment to the GOP-controlled Senate.
“The politics of this perhaps turned around in some key states because, obviously, you would want to talk about it if you’ve accomplished the thing you’ve set out to do for a long period of time,” Baier told “America’s Newsroom” after Pelosi took only a limited number of questions about impeachment Thursday at her weekly news conference.
Pelosi’s move to wait to send their articles of impeachment against President Trump to the GOP-controlled Senate is based on a stated concern that they are incapable of holding a fair trial. Pelosi held a press conference on Wednesday following the House impeachment vote and was asked what would qualify as a “fair trial.”
She was then asked about possibly withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate until they get certain reassurances, and the speaker refused to give a direct answer.
