Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her “absurd” move of holding on to the articles of impeachment.
McConnell predicted Pelosi would back down and deliver the articles “sooner or later.”
Fox News reports Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Monday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s delay in sending articles of impeachment to the Senate is an “absurd” position to take, predicting she’ll back down “sooner or later.”
“She apparently believes she can tell us how to run the trial,” McConnell told “Fox & Friends,” arguing that transmitting articles of impeachment once adopted is mandated by the Constitution.
As he’s said in recent days, McConnell described the current state of affairs on Capitol Hill as an “impasse.”
“We can’t do anything until the speaker sends the papers over, so everybody enjoy the holidays,” he quipped.
