House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still holding onto those articles of impeachment like they're going to get blown away in a tornado. To this day, she was refused to turn them over to the Senate and honestly, for no real reason. She's really just making herself look like an idiot.
Some senators are getting impatient with Pelosi and have threatened to introduce a measure to dismiss the articles of impeachment if she doesn't turn them over.
Senator Josh Hawley tweeted, "Dems said impeachment was URGENT. Now they don’t want to have a trial, because they have no evidence. In real world, if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed. So on Monday, I will introduce measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution."
"This will expose Dems’ circus for what it is: a fake impeachment, abuse of the Constitution, based on no evidence. If Dems won’t proceed with trial, bogus articles should be dismissed and @realDonaldTrump fully cleared."

This just shows you once again how braindead the Dems really are. They held the hearings, wrote up the articles of impeachment, voted on them, now....nothing.
According to The Hill,
Officials for the GOP senator didn't immediately respond to questions about his plan.
The House last month passed two articles of impeachment — one on the president abusing his power in his dealings with Ukraine and another on him obstructing Congress during its investigation of those actions — making Trump the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.
But Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has declined to say when she will transmit the articles to the Senate, an action that would kick off the impeachment trial.
Pelosi said she wants to know the details of the trial proceedings. The move appears to have rankled Trump, who has repeatedly lashed out over the decision.
I thought this was an urgent matter? Isn't that what the Democrats were telling us was the reason that they were rushing through the entire process so far, even against a law professor's recommendation and warning?
They know there is no real rush, they're just on tilt so bad that they can't function rationally.
