Even Some Democrat Senators Now Telling Nancy Pelosi To Stop Playing Games And Hand Over Impeachment

Nancy Pelosi’s little game is starting to get old and fast.

The impeachment that she and other Democrats claimed was a matter of urgency is still sitting in the House.

Now, even some Democrats in the Senate are getting tired of this and are telling Nancy to get with it or go home.

Senate Democrats break with Pelosi over impeachment trial

Democrats are finally acknowledging that their efforts to extract concessions from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial are coming to an end.

Though Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still withholding the House’s impeachment articles from the Senate, Democrats’ hopes of swaying the GOP leader have dimmed after McConnell secured the votes in his caucus to move forward without an agreement on witnesses and documents.

And Senate Democrats say it’s time to begin the trial and end the delay.

“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.”

Several other Senate Democrats also showed their impatience with the Democratic leaders’ strategy. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Wednesday morning that Democrats “should move on” and send the articles to the Senate, and Sen. Jon Tester of Montana said he’s “ready” for the trial to start.

“We need to get folks to testify and we need more information … but nonetheless, I’m ready,” Tester said. “I don’t know what leverage we have. It looks like the cake is already baked.”

Pelosi is losing whatever leverage she had.

We’re reaching a turning point on this and it won’t be good for Democrats.
