Be afraid, Nancy Pelosi. Be very afraid.
According to Senator Mitch McConnell, she is and she has every reason to be. He spoke on the floor of the Senate on Thursday, and had nothing good to say about the sham impeachment fiasco currently going on in Washington.
Sen. Mitch McConnell, in remarks prepared for a Thursday floor speech, accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being afraid to send “their shoddy work product to the Senate” after she threw uncertainty into the impeachment process by refusing to say when she would send two impeachment articles to the Senate for a trial….
McConnell described Trump’s impeachment as “the most rushed, least thorough, and most unfair impeachment inquiry in modern history.”
“The framers built the Senate to provide stability,” McConnell says in his Senate floor remarks, according to excerpts released by his office. “To keep partisan passions from boiling over. Moments like this are why the United States Senate exists.”
Every now and then we do need that reminder, that’s for sure, that each house of Congress is technically a check on the other.
