Pelosi Is Out Of Time! Senate, “Hand Over The Articles Or Else”

More News For You

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been holding onto the articles of impeachment and refusing to hand them over to Senate so they can begin the impeachment trial and put an end to this mess.

In fact, many senators, including multiple Democratic senators have grown so impatient over Pelosi’s procrastinating that they have given her an ultimatum: Hand over the articles of impeachment or the Senate will dismiss the whole thing.

Senator Josh Hawley said via Twitter, “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.”

Weren’t they Republicans just saying this was an urgent matter and fly through the hearings like there was no tomorrow? If they are so sure the president did wrong then just turn them over already and stop wasting everyone’s time.

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.
