White House Predicts Pelosi to ‘Yield’ on Impeachment Delay
The White House is trying to make the case that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has put herself in an untenable position by stalling House-passed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Pelosi is delaying sending the charges in hopes of shaping the Senate trial.
A senior administration official is suggesting that Pelosi will soon relent.
That would pave the way for leaders in the Republican-controlled Senate to settle on the contours of a trial that's likely to result in Trump's acquittal.
And a Trump ally in the Senate is throwing cold water on Democrats' efforts to call new witnesses.
