House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed Sunday that she and fellow Democrats will soon discuss sending articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for a trial, and defended her decision to wait weeks to do so.

Pelosi has faced criticism from Republicans for not allowing the impeachment process to move forward, and even some Democrats have expressed impatience. Still, she insists it has been an effective strategy.

The article goes on to state the following:

“No, no, no — we feel that it has produced a very positive result,” Pelosi said on ABC’s “This Week,” pointing to new information that has surfaced former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s announcement that he is now willing to testify in the Senate under subpoena.

Senate Republicans responded to the delay by introducing an amendment to Senate rules that would allow the dismissal of the impeachment case if Pelosi failed to send the articles within 25 days. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supported the resolution, leading Pelosi to accuse him of being engaged in a “cover-up.”

“Dismissing is a cover-up,” Pelosi stated.
