Nancy Pelosi just admitted defeat over impeachment and officially invited President Trump to give the State of the Union Address Feb 4, 2020.

Obviously she believes impeachment is doomed in the Senate which begs the question why go through such a divisive exercise in the first place?

We have an election coming up and the people should decide the politicians. Especially after the IG report proved there has been a three-year-long war against Trump and the truth.

From The Hill:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday invited President Trump to deliver his annual State of the Union address on Feb. 4.

 “In their great wisdom, our Founders crafted a Constitution based on a system of separation of powers: three co-equal branches acting as checks on each other. To ensure that balance of powers, the Constitution calls for the president to ‘from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union,’ ” Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

 “In the spirit of respecting our Constitution, I invite you to deliver your State of the Union address before a Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 in the Chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives.”

 A White House aide later told The Hill that Trump had accepted.

 Pelosi’s letter comes two days after the House voted almost exclusively along party lines to impeach Trump, alleging that he abused his power by pressing the Ukrainian government to investigate a political opponent and that he obstructed Congress in lawmakers’ probe into his actions.

It’s unclear whether a Senate trial on the two articles of impeachment will have already taken place by the Feb. 4 date or if it will be ongoing.

Pelosi has not yet sent over the articles to the Senate for a trial, saying that Democrats want to know the parameters of a trial — such as whether or not there will be witnesses called — before appointing the lawmakers who will serve as impeachment managers.
