The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.
They have put the country through hell for the last three years building up to this fake impeachment and now they are still playing games with it.
Nancy Pelosi is now threatening not to send it to the Senate because she knows it will die there.
EXTORTION: Nancy Pelosi Threatens to Withhold Impeachment Articles from Senate Republicans
Well, the final vote in the House of Representatives was not a shocker. House Democrats’ lust to impeach President Trump on some shoddy quid pro quo allegation over military aid to Ukraine passed after nearly 12 hours of debate.
As Katie wrote, the vote was 229-198-1. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), a 2020 Democratic candidate, voted present, while Reps. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) and Collin Peterson (D-MN) voted with Republicans against this witch-hunt.
Today was truly a clown show, with scores of Democrats trying to make the case that Trump is an existential threat to the United States. There was a lot of hot air. The evidence against Trump is the very definition of weak sauce. It’s so thin and so nakedly partisan that swing-state voters are sour on impeachment. This move by Democrats has increased the president’s popularity.
It hasn’t moved the needle. In fact, the approval numbers for impeachment are now underwater. It has done the exact opposite of what Democrats had hoped, and this could be one massive in-kind contribution to the 2020 Trump campaign. Maybe within the leadership, they know this too, but they’re at the point of no return. They promised their base impeachment and it very well could allow Trump to cruise to re-election.
Knowing that the Republican Senate will dispense of their so-called evidence for impeachment, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has threatened to withhold transmitting the articles to the upper chamber.
Nancy Pelosi won't commit to sending the House Democrats' sham articles of impeachment over to the Senate.
Basically confirming what we've known all along this impeachment is a WITCH HUNT & A SHAM! pic.twitter.com/2KGQBkIsSE

How much longer do Democrats think the American people are going to put up with this?
