WASHINGTON—Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced on Tuesday that the House will vote on a resolution on Wednesday to name the House impeachment managers and transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

Who will Pelosi name and what will they do? She is widely expected to include House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. The managers act as prosecutors, working to convince lawmakers of their case against President Donald Trump. During President Bill Clinton’s 1999 trial, 13 House Republicans acted as managers. White House lawyer Pat Cipollone and Trump’s personal lawyer Jay Sekulow will head the president’s defense team.

    I believe I have this whole thing figured out: 

    Nancy Pelosi has been colluding with the Iranians to disrupt the 2016 Presidential election. Yes, a bit late, but still, better late than never.

    One of the witnesses the Dems believed would most help their impeachment case was General Soleimani. What he would have testified was totally false, but he was capable of projecting such a sincere truthful image, Pelosi expected him to sway Senate Republicans. 

    When Soleimani was killed, the Dems still had hopes because two Canadians of Iranian descent knew of Soleimani’s testimony and were planning to come to the US.  Unfortunately for the Dems, they were on the plane the Iranian Revolutionary Guards shot down in error. 

    Now heads are about to roll in Iran, but not because over-eager Guards shot down a plane load of innocent civilians. No, the  Iranian ayatollahs are mad because without the testimony of Soleimani, or his two associates on that plane, impeachment will likely fail. Thus, the Iranians can’t expect more pallets of cash to be delivered by the US Deep State. Of course the Ayatollahs are also angered because President  Trump is thwarting their ambitions to hasten the coming of the Last Imam, the Mahdi, by slowing Iranian progress on nuclear weapons. 

    The US mainstream media has mostly been kept in the dark about the Dems’ plans.  All they know is “Trump bad! Dems wonderful,” which they endlessly repeat in monotonous variation. But Harvey Weinstein knows a great deal and is preparing to blow the lid off things if the Dems can’t somehow arrange for a pardon and a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Hunter Biden, hoping to be the next US Attorney General after the 2020 elections, has already made many promises to Weinstein. However, the “suicide” of Jeff Epstein in jail has both Hunter and his dad really rattled. Hunter’s Daddy suspects Epstein’s death was arranged by Hillary, and Biden knows Hillary wants to be President so bad, she is capable of anything. 

    Pelosi, however, does not know anything about Weinstein’s threats or the connection between Weinstein and the Bidens.  She has decided to throw in the towel on impeachment, and just get the farce over with. She is totally unaware of how many people are infuriated by this. She is about to find out. 

    Outrageous? Sure, about as outrageous as the actual events. Of which we really know far less than what we have heard so far. Stay tuned.

    That was an epic tale, OldMike.

    The best thing about the Trump presidency is that it has exposed Washington and the media as unimaginably corrupt, full of dirty rotten scoundrels seeking their own greedy gain.  Nearly every word that proceeds out of their mouths is false.

    “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.  The venom of asps is under their lips.  Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”

    Thank you Mr. President for (inadvertently) stirring up all the snakes and rats so we can see them plainly.
