HaHa! The Senate doesn't have any pressure, what is the MSM trying to lie about?? The block is on Pelosi and the Democrats, who are trying to force the Republicans to acknowledge their Shampeachment. :D

There is no impasse. The house has failed to fulfill it's duties under the Impeachment process. They are also attempting to obstruct the job of the Senate to review the articles. The Senate is just doing it's job as it is designed. The articles haven't been sent, but they are woefully lacking in substance and any charges of wrongdoing that rise to high crimes and misdemeanors. The Senate's responsibility is to dismiss the charges immediately until the House can follow the process correctly and prove a case is there to be reviewed. They rushed the articles and found no cause for charges, but forced it through anyway. It should not be surprising when they are dismissed without much consideration as there isn't much to consider unless they are planning on calling those responsible for the investigations into corruption like Hunter, Joe, CEO of Barisma, Former and current prosecutors from Ukraine and get to the bottom of why the investigations are necessary.

Mitch can set up rules n only fifty one needed can pass mitch rules... But it changes nothing for the public is at 70% in waiting a trial... N listening to the voice n vote of each senator... If gop just blow one off n on the record the balance of senate could flip.. There is pressure because of this fact... N these new unredacted emails r taking its toll on gop narrative of sham impeachment... Mitch is no dummy... N he knows if procedures not in place.. Even with simple majority... Long term damage is done to him n senate n president n the rule of law

Yeah William it is impeachment... That stands for all time..... The Senate's only role is to try n rule innocent guilty or dismiss... It's how constitution set it up in article one of constitution for duty n roles of legislative branch... The house sole power to impeach the senate sole duty to conduct a trial for articles of impeachment... N no Supreme Court can change any part of these procedures.. U cant appeal to have impeachment tossed out by scotus n senate can simple majority over rule anything chief justice rules on in impeachment trial... Balls in Senate's court... They fully know what articles are... N can set rules with or without hand off. What the senate can't do is start the trial but can make the rules without the house pass off....... It's a political ballet going on tween house n senate because it's the first time a house is opposite majority of the senate...... N house has to provide trial managers... So she has a footing to push mitch... While public weighs in
