Pelosi was asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos, "You said he has violated the constitution again and again". "We've done our job". Pelosi has not sent the articles of impeachment to the Senate with the excuse that she wants to ensure that the trial will be fair. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) that would allow the Senate to dismiss articles of impeachment if they are not transmitted within 25 days of the vote, which took place December 18. A trial could start as early as Wednesday, if the House acts quickly, though lawmakers and aides have speculated that it will not begin in earnest until the following week.
Democrats had sought to force a split between at least four Republicans and McConnell to vote on calling up impeachment witnesses before the trial rules were set. That is not a fair trial.
U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of ME told reporters on Friday that she is working with a "fairly small group" of fellow Republican senators toward a goal of ensuring witnesses can be called in the chamber's impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Why didn't she insist that the actual impeachment process in the House be conducted in a fair manner as prior impeachments were conducted?
Pelosi has faced criticism from Republicans for not allowing the impeachment process to move forward, and even some Democrats have expressed impatience.
Pelosi has delayed delivery of the charges for weeks to compel Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to agree to include new witness testimony and evidence about Trump's pressure on Ukraine to probe former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading Democrat running for the nomination to face Trump in the November election. Pelosi didn't say exactly when, however, the House would send them over. Trump was also charged with obstruction of Congress for trying to block the House investigation.

Grand Theft Auto V likewise remained one of the console's most-downloaded titles, even rising one rank compared to past year . If I were to guess what all we can really do now, I'd look for some kind of PlayStation 5 towards February or March.
Democrats are now focusing their attention on winning over Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski as potential allies during the trial, with the hope that capturing them could spur other Republicans to abandon Trump.
Responding to Pelosi's plans to send the articles next week, McConnell told reporters, "about time". The impeachment was based on a phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president.
In a news conference on Thursday, Trump made a similar statement when he asserted that he "would have no problem" with Bolton testifying if not for "presidential privilege".
Pelosi has yet to formally submit the articles of impeachment to the Senate, though. McCarthy argued that this would boost former vice president Joe Biden, one of Sanders's rivals, in the run-up to the February 3 Iowa Democratic caucuses. "You can't be in the White House as president - future, I'm talking about future, many future presidents - and have a security adviser, anybody having to do with security, and legal, and other things" testify, the president said.
It's unclear what Pelosi means by being "in court" anyway since no Ukraine-specific witnesses have been pursued in court.
