House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has withheld impeachment articles for over two weeks now.
And Democrats senators are beginning to get jittery about the stall tactics by Pelosi.
On Wednesday, according to Bloomberg journalist Laura Litvan, California Sen. Diane Feinstein is ready to end the delay of impeachment articles, asking that Pelosi “send them over” soon.
“If we’re going to do it, she should send them over,” Feinstein said. “I don’t see what good delay does.”
Dianne Feinstein says it’s time for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to send the impeachment articles to the Senate.
“If we’re going to do it, she should send them over,” the California Democrat said. “I don’t see what good delay does.”

This comes after Pelosi issued a statement claiming that the onus is on McConnell to end his “loyalty” to President Donald Trump.
“Sadly, Leader McConnell has made clear that his loyalty is to the President and not the Constitution,” Pelosi wrote. “Leader McConnell has insisted that the approach under consideration is identical to those of the Clinton trial and that ‘fair is fair.’ This is simply not true.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell responded quickly, saying that he will simply leave Democrats behind should they continue to stall.
“Fifty-one senators determine what we do and there will be, I’m sure, intense discussion, once we get past phase one, about the whole witness issue,” McConnell said, adding that Pelosi should send over the impeachment articles quickly.
