    (The Hill) House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday suggested that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been withholding the articles of impeachment to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and other White House hopefuls in the Senate from campaigning during the upcoming trial.

    “If there’s anyone who gained from this, it would be anybody who’s running for president that’s not in the U.S. Senate,” McCarthy said.

    McCarthy went on to say that Sanders “actually has a chance to win [the Democratic presidential nomination] but not now that Nancy Pelosi has held these documents.”

    McCarthy said “if you look at the true political nature” of Pelosi’s decision to withhold the two articles of impeachment, it was “to harm one campaign and give a benefit to another.”

    Another one for the stopped clock is right twice a day file, though here McCarthy is only half-right–I don’t think this kills Bernie’s chances. He’s got a great ground game, great surrogates, and determined supporters. I think he is right about why Pelosi delayed the start of the impeachment trial, though.

    Her spokesman’s response that impeachment has nothing to do with the campaign is complete and utter bullshit. Of course it does!

    I thought about this for quite a while. This will

    suit both parties then, because I don’t think that

    the Repugs would like to see a debate between

    Trump and Bernie either. Naturally we don’t

    know whether Trump would even agree to one.

    Wouldn’t that also impede the campaigning of Warren and Klobuchar?

      @bluemeany Yes it does, but Bernie is the biggest threat to Pelosi and her pack of Corruptocrats. Even McCarthy knows that.

    It’s an opportunity to show the power of the “movement.” An opportunity to unleash the surrogates, to unleash the “US”,to show that this is bigger than Bernie.  It’s a chance to “have Bernie’s back” and to show the power of “the people.” It’s a challenge to embrace.

    What’s astounding is that these ‘tricksters’ don’t see what their actions are really going to do.

    In my estimation, all these things only cement Bernie supporters and these shenanigans will insure another 4 years of idiocy.
