CNN analyst warns Pelosi: Withholding impeachment articles isn’t ‘sustainable’

CNN analyst David Gergen warned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she’s holding a “double-edged sword” by withholding the House-passed articles of impeachment from the Senate.

Joining Sunday night’s CNN Newsroom, Gergen — who was an adviser to former Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton — was asked to respond to Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short’s assessment that Pelosi “will yield” eventually and send the articles to the upper chamber.

Gergen said Short “has a point” and explained that Pelosi has found herself in a predicament.

“Pelosi has been masterful in the past months dealing with the issues,” he said. “But now she has what we might call a double-edged sword. One edge of that sword: she’s arguing persuasively that the White House has shut down the possibility of getting documents and witnesses … And, therefore, the full facts haven’t come out, and Democrats are entitled to have the full facts if they’ll have a trial. That’s a legitimate argument.”
