An impeachment shocker just dropped. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi didn’t expect this to happen — she was taken completely by surprise.
Appearing on Fox News, Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) exposed Pelosi for her political grandstanding. He said that Pelosi holding the articles of impeachment was “to help Joe Biden” in the election.
“I think I’ve come to a conclusion why Nancy Pelosi held that thing — held the articles of impeachment for 33 days,” said Scott. “This whole thing is to help Joe Biden.”
With the Democratic primary for president just around the corner, Scott concluded that holding the articles for over a month was meant “to keep Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren off the campaign trail.”
Scott’s assumption makes sense. With Biden’s two biggest opponents — Sanders and Warren — off the campaign trail leading into the primary, Biden will more easily walk away with the nomination.
Of course, this will be yet another political miscalculation by Pelosi and the Democratic primary. Should Biden actually become his party’s nominee, Trump will beat him in a landslide in November.
