Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she will hold onto the articles of impeachment despite Senate Democrats pressuring her to hand them to the chamber:

“No, I’m not holding them indefinitely,” Pelosi told reporters during a press conference at the Capitol. “I will turn them over when I’m ready, and that will probably be soon.”

Pelosi stuck to her demands of needing to know “the arena in which we are sending our managers.” She asked if that’s “too much to ask.”

On Wednesday, several Senate Democrats spoke out against Pelosi, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith (D-CA) told CNN this morning that Pelosi should give the senate the articles of impeachment.

Smith walked back his statement, saying he “misspoke” before repeating Pelosi’s talking points.

I wonder who got to him because Dana Bash claimed another House Democrat told her that others feel the same way. No one comes out against Pelosi because she “never forgets.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stuck to his guns when it comes to the trial. He has repeatedly said that Pelosi will not dictate what happens in the Senate.
