On Friday, President Donald Trump hammered House Democrats for delaying the Senate impeachment trial, accusing them of trying to rig the 2020 election against Senator and 2020 Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Shortly after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi successfully impeached President Trump in the House last December, she held on to the impeachment articles for nearly a month. On Thursday, the Speaker finally signed off on the articles of impeachment to send them over to the Senate.
Many people speculate that Speaker Pelosi held onto the articles of impeachment to give 2020 Democratic presidential candidates like Joe Biden an edge considering the other candidates who are also senators, like Senator Sanders, will now be forced to abandon the campaign trail to focus on the Senate impeachment trial.
“They are rigging the election again against Bernie Sanders, just like last time, only even more obviously,” the President tweeted. “They are bringing him out of so important Iowa in order that, as a Senator, he sit through the Impeachment Hoax Trial. Crazy Nancy thereby gives the strong edge to Sleepy Joe Biden, and Bernie is shut out again. Very unfair, but that’s the way the Democrats play the game. Anyway, it’s a lot of fun to watch!”
The President seems to be onto something considering Sanders himself has admitted that the Senate impeachment trial will hurt his campaign.
