As we are well aware, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been holding on to the articles of impeachment and refusing to hand them over to the Senate so that they can begin the impeachment trial and put an end to this mess.
Some senators are getting impatient with Pelosi and have threatened to introduce a measure to dismiss the articles of impeachment if she doesn't turn them over. In fact, he's given Pelosi a deadline...January 12th to turn over the articles or
Senator Josh Hawley said via Twitter, "Dems said impeachment was URGENT. Now they don’t want to have a trial, because they have no evidence. In real world, if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed. So on Monday, I will introduce measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution."
"This will expose Dems’ circus for what it is: a fake impeachment, abuse of the Constitution, based on no evidence. If Dems won’t proceed with trial, bogus articles should be dismissed and @realDonaldTrump fully cleared."

This just shows you once again how full of crap the Democrats are and how big of liars they are.
They DID say that it was urgent and that is why they were speeding through the hearings. Then they vote on the articles of impeachment, approve them, then turn around and refuse to turn them over to the Senate so they can start the trial.
According to The Hill,
Officials for the GOP senator didn't immediately respond to questions about his plan.
The House last month passed two articles of impeachment — one on the president abusing his power in his dealings with Ukraine and another on him obstructing Congress during its investigation of those actions — making Trump the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.
But Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has declined to say when she will transmit the articles to the Senate, an action that would kick off the impeachment trial.
Pelosi said she wants to know the details of the trial proceedings. The move appears to have rankled Trump, who has repeatedly lashed out over the decision.
What happened to their sense of urgency?
There never really was one. They are putting on a big show for the world to see and it's only making them look completely foolish.
