Good luck with this! WH's point is an utter hogwash...

White House considers arguing that Trump wasn't impeached

The White House is considering making the argument that President Trump has not officially been impeached, given that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate, two sources involved in the president's impeachment defense told CBS News.

The House voted to impeach Mr. Trump on two articles of impeachment abuse of power and obstruction of Congress on Wednesday. However, Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that the House would wait to deliver the articles until the Senate had laid out the rules for the trial.

"When we see the process that's set forth in the Senate, then we'll know the number of managers we'll have to move forward, and who we would choose," the California Democrat said. The House must vote on a resolution designating impeachment managers to prosecute the case against Mr. Trump in the Senate before delivering the articles.

4. The reTHUGS have bound themselves to tRUMP and the result is that they'll all go down together.

The power of the cult is strong for them to follow this path, but it's considerate of them to do our work for us.

6. Nancy can file the articles whenever she wants.

She can wait until the day before the election if she wants.

7. Hanging over his head from now on.

One big slip of the lip and they can pull him from office within the day. In other words, Nancy has him by the short hairs.

8. And I see no reason for her to file, ever, if she doesn't get an

agreement for a fair trial. Just leave him impeached "forever" without any exoneration of any kind.
