After Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s master plan to delay the Senate impeachment trial ended in failure after a month, House Democrats finally got up and walked the articles of impeachment against President Trump over to the Senate for trial. It was that transfer of documents that had the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) all giddy with anticipation during their Wednesday evening newscasts.
ABC’s World News Tonight was, without a doubt, the most excited to witness the Democratic impeachment managers, led by proven liar Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), walk across the Capitol to the Senate side. “And history was just made a short time ago in our nation's capital. The impeachment of a president advancing to the Senate for only the third time in history. The President will now face a Senate trial,” anchor David Muir enthusiastically announced.
In an exercise of pure sensationalism, Muir actually prepared a special graphic showing the route the Democrats took get to the Senate:
Nancy Pelosi taking the historic step, signing the two articles of impeachment against President Trump. One for abuse of power, the other for obstruction of Congress. The articles, look at this, then carried from one side of the Capitol to the other, about a two-and-a-half-minute walk from the House to the Senate. This walk, this moment, hasn't been seen in 21 years. Seven members of Congress making the walk. They will present the case for senators to judge.
Unfortunately for the managers, Senate Republicans showed them the door and told them to come back at another time. CBS chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes was the only network reporter to mention that part in her report.
