Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said that he suspects House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) delayed sending articles of impeachment to the Senate in order to hurt Democrat senators running for president and to help former Vice President Joe Biden’s candidacy.
“I think I’ve come to the conclusion why Nancy Pelosi held the articles of impeachment for 33 days. This whole thing has helped Joe Biden. I mean all this is to keep Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren off the campaign trail and help Joe Biden,” Scott told Fox News host Neil Cavuto.
Scott said the White House defense team showed on Saturday that the process of impeachment in the House was unfair and flawed.
“I think the White House counsel showed that there was no due process in the House,” Scott said.
Scott also said he thought the process adopted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was fair. “I’m shocked that the Democrats didn’t go along with it,” he said.
