The American people have waited long enough for a resolution to this impeachment trial, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knows it.
The long wait has come at the behest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her figurative game of chicken with the articles of impeachment. She says that she won’t send them over until McConnell lays out his trial plan; McConnell says it’s his plan to do with how he pleases.
Now, with pressure mounting on Pelosi to finally turn the articles over to McConnell, the Senate is fully expecting to get the show on the road come next week.
Sen.Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Wednesday that the Senate will start its impeachment proceedings next week, signaling an end to the stalemate over the articles which have sat in the House since December.
Graham argued that Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s (D-Calif.) “impeachment dam has broken,” pointing to growing calls from some Senate Democrats for her to transmit the two articles of impeachment to the Senate.
“You said it was urgent; if you believe it to be urgent, send it to the Senate for disposition,” Graham said. “She’s losing Democrats in the Senate. The impeachment dam of Nancy Pelosi is about to crack.”
The news couldn’t come soon enough for many Americans, who are growing ever more impatient with the general state of affairs in the nation’s capital as of late.
