McConnell Slams Pelosi For Impeachment Stunt

Via The Washington Examiner:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell criticized House Democrats for “handing out souvenirs” after signing an impeachment resolution and sending the articles to the Senate.

“Democrats said over and over that they recognized the gravity and the seriousness of this action and that they had only come to it reluctantly,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said Thursday on the Senate floor. “Well, nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs, as though this were a happy bill signing instead of the gravest process in our constitution.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, held a ceremony in the ornate Rayburn Room of the House chamber to sign a resolution appointing seven impeachment managers to prosecute the case in the Senate.

She signed the resolution with 24 pens, emblazoned with her signature. The pens were arranged on silver platters the media photographed and distributed widely on social media.
