Democrats are tired of Nancy Pelosi’s stall tactics. They feel that she’s held things up long enough. The Senate is demanding that she hand over the articles of impeachment, and I don’t just mean Republicans; Democrats are demanding it as well.
Senator Dianne Feinstein even told Pelosi that enough is enough. Feinstein said, “The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”
According to Fox News,
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled to congressional Democrats late Tuesday that she plans to continue to hold on to articles of impeachment against President Trump — for now — demanding that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell first release the resolution outlining the terms for a Senate trial.
In a letter to colleagues, Pelosi, D-Calif., indicated she would not transmit impeachment articles to the Senate until McConnell moves to “immediately publish” the resolution while accusing him of making “misleading claims” about past impeachment processes to “justify” Republican plans.
“Sadly, Leader McConnell has made clear that his loyalty is to the President and not the Constitution,” Pelosi wrote. “Leader McConnell has insisted that the approach under consideration is identical to those of the Clinton trial and that ‘fair is fair.’ This is simply not true.”
She finally said that she’s going to turn over the articles now which is a good thing because Senator Hawley said that he was giving Pelosi until January 12th to turn them over or he’d move to dismiss the whole impeachment.
We know that what the GOP Senators want is a trial so they have an opportunity to show the world how stupid and petty the Democrats are behaving, but they will prepare to dismiss it all if she continues to refuse.
