Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) excoriated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the senate floor asserting that she finally ended her “one-woman blockade.”
“This strange gambit has achieved absolutely nothing,” McConnell said of Pelosi’s threats and delay tactics.
The Senate “was never going to allow the Speaker to dictate” how to handle a trial. “The Senate will not be sucked into this precedent-breaking path,” McConnell said touting the separation of powers between the two chambers of congress.

For several weeks power-hungry Pelosi refused to send the articles of impeachment to the senate unless they bowed to her demands to call in more White House witnesses.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to cede his authority, pushed back against Pelosi and forced her to cave.
Pelosi is reportedly sending the Senate the two articles of impeachment this week.
The Constitution is clear about the Senate’s authority to try impeachment.
Article I, Section 3 says: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”
The Mitch and rinos historically spineless when the media pressures them, when they say Trumps stock at an all time high, its $$$$ in contributions they see.
Pelosi doesn’t give a damn about the Constitution. Her impeachment doesn’t serve its purpose unless unscrupulous Democrats can control the proceedings throughout the process. Without Democrats making their own rules and shutting down fair questioning, truth and facts will leak out at some point and that destroys the Democrats.
