Liberal Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner believes that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will ensure a fair impeachment trial in the Senate to kick Donald Trump out of the White House.
There are only two things wrong with that:
- Pelosi has absolutely no authority in the U.S. Senate
- Even if she did, there wouldn’t be a fair trial. Just like the articles of impeachment in the House were not fair.
This whole shebang has been fabricated from the beginning to impeach Trump because Democrats know they cannot beat him in the 2020 election. The only hope they have at winning is to boot him.
The anti-Trump director took to Twitter on Thursday to praise Pelosi and throw a cheap shot at the president.
“Republicans are seeing what a real leader looks like,” Reiner tweeted, “And they’d be wise not to mess with Speaker Pelosi. She will insure a fair Senate trial. She will insure the public sees that this President has committed Abuse of Power & Obstruction of Congress. She will insure the truth.”

Pelosi has no official jurisdiction in the Senate, where Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is expected to spearhead the trial process. The Democrat leader is attempting to exert her power anyway, threatening to stonewall the Senate by withholding the articles of impeachment for an indefinite period.
She recently admitted that the impeachment process started just after President Trump took office.
“It’s been going on 22 months—two and a half years, actually,” she said this month at Politico’s Women Rule Summit in Washington, D.C.
Reiner added that President Trump is “the most criminally corrupt president in our nation’s history.”
Senator Mitch McConnell said on Thursday that Pelosi is too afraid to send “their shoddy work product to the Senate,” adding that Trump’s impeachment is “the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.”
