The Senate is fed up with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to forward articles of impeachment. At least one Senator plans to take action if articles aren’t delivered by Monday. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) just announce that, if the democrats do not forward articles of impeachment to the Senate, he will introduce a measure to dismiss them outright.
The Daily Wire reports:
Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley announced on Thursday that he is introducing legislation that will dismiss House Democrats’ articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump because of Democrats’ abuse of the Constitution.
Hawley’s announcement comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has continued to refuse to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate because she is concerned that the political trial will be biased.
“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,” Hawley wrote on Twitter.
