We wouldn’t have caught this piece in Raw Story if it hadn’t been retweeted by Resistance leader Claude Taylor, whose weapon of choice is billboards. According to Raw Story’s Tom Boggioni, Mitch McConnell will now have to bow to Speaker Nancy Pelosi on impeachment. It seems just the opposite to us, but whatever.
Here’s why Mitch McConnell will now have to bow to Nancy Pelosi on impeachment – Raw Story https://t.co/xr93qR80uE

Turns out Boggioni’s analysis is actually borrowed from a Washington Post reporter’s appearance on CNN:
Speaking with CNN New Day host Martin Savidge, the WaPo’s Toulouse Olorunnipa said the majority of pressure over the delayed impeachment trial is likely on McConnell and not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
“It’s a stalemate,” Olorunnipa explained. “It has been for the last several weeks and there’s no sense that anyone is looking to budge. We heard from the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the leader on the floor and they seem steadfast in their positions they have different views of how this trial should take place and you have House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who’s in no rush to send the articles over because they believe the Senate should take a more significant approach where they hold a trial and have witnesses and it doesn’t appear that Mitch McConnell is looking to do that.”

Incredible wishcasting here from people who have ignored what Republicans from McConnell to Murkowski have actually said on witnesses to create this fun fan fiction. https://t.co/CmhgOnCgaJ

Headline: Will now have to
Article: I THINK the pressure is on Republicans so they'll eventually cave.
Reality: Impeachment is increasingly unpopular.
Goodness. So sad.

It’s amazing that there are people delusional to believe this.

No, he won't.
Seriously, this is hilarious.
He's made it clear, nothing happens in the Senate until articles are forwarded.
And what she wants/demands is irrelevant.

The amount of people publishing completely ridiculous, impossible scenarios for resistance clicks is amazing. And the people who eat it up are just as stupid.

Hey, aren't you the clown that used to push a bunch of collusion fan fics to desperate resistance dimwits?
Those were halcyon days!

Won’t happen. House and Senate are equal and one has no control over what the other does. #Constitution

Lmao you people are delusional! Mitch McConnell doesn’t care that Pelosi isn’t sending articles he never wanted in the first place. He’s going to let Pelosi sit on them while he confirms more Judges and President Trump wins reelection, then take Ginsburgs seat! ?
