Speaker Nancy Pelosi is currently headlining the media circus that is the signing of the two articles of impeachment against President Trump, going on about how it’s “so sad, so tragic for our country” as if members of Congress like Rep. Rashida Tlaib hadn’t exclaimed, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf**ker!” months and months ago, long before the roulette ball landed on Ukraine.
Sen. Kamala Harris has an idea to take advantage of the impeachment trial, and that’s to propose a freeze on judicial nominees.

The Senate is receiving the articles of impeachment against President Trump today. We should not advance any more judicial nominees while we take on this solemn responsibility of the president’s trial for high crimes and misdemeanors.
— Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris) January 15, 2020
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Wednesday called for a moratorium on judicial nominees during President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate, citing a similar pause during former President Clinton’s trial in 1999.
“The president is charged with high crimes and misdemeanors, and the Senate must take seriously its constitutional role in this process,” Harris said in a statement. “During the time when articles of impeachment are before the Senate, it would be wholly inappropriate to advance the president’s nominees to the federal judiciary.”
Yeah ok. ?

Or until the Mueller investigation is over.
Or until all the accusers of all the things have been heard.
Or until all the votes are found in all the car trunks.
Whichever is latest.

LOL, LOL, Mitch is going to step up the pace. We need to make sure the 9'th circuit is strongly conservative.

So this is another motive for the impeachment. Did you get bad news recently on RBG?

If you want to hear Mitch laugh you should tell him that one…

Truth comes out. You're just mad he's putting Constitutional judges on the benches. Can't wait to see your face when the Senate drops a not guilty verdict. Then when the president wins a #Trump2020Landslide it'll be even more sweet to see your mug!

You should recuse yourself.
— Sweatccess?? (@Sweatccess1) January 15, 2020
@SenKamalaHarris should recuse herself from the impeachment trial since she hoped to be the Dem nomination against President Trump, along w/the other Dem Senators who have been and who are currently attempting to be the Dem nomination for running against President Trump.
— michele miktus (@michele_miktus) January 15, 2020
Remember when the narrative was that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was supposed to recuse himself because he couldn’t be trusted to be an impartial juror? Does this sound like an impartial juror?
Sen. Kamala Harris on impeding impeachment trial: "Each senator here must exhibit the kind of moral and ethical leadership that this president abandoned when he pressured a foreign nation to interfere in our election." https://t.co/aE2u6rLZHD pic.twitter.com/noaTA4Re66
