On Wednesday the House of Representatives — well, the Democrats anyway — voted to approve two articles of impeachment against President Trump. Ever since then Nancy Pelosi’s gone into “stall” mode and is holding off with sending the articles to the Senate indefinitely.
Republicans are seeing what a real leader looks like. And they’d be wise not to mess with Speaker Pelosi. She will insure a fair Senate trial. She will insure the public sees that this President has committed Abuse of Power & Obstruction of Congress. She will insure the truth.

We assume he means “ensure,” unless Pelosi’s stalling is being considered some sort of anti-Trump Resistance insurance policy. As for Pelosi controlling what happens in the Senate, um, no:
You do know she’s a member of the house and not the Senate? https://t.co/dK37HxXLxP

The Senate is not only a different legislative body but it has its own rules. Time for a lie down, Rob.

Seriously, she has ZERO control of Senate. https://t.co/RDwNJalOzF

Here’s a bonus lack of self-awareness tweet from Reiner:
The President of the United States is a tin foil hat wearing Useful Idiot. If he is not removed from office & goes on to win in 2020, America will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Vladimir Putin.

We can’t help but admire Reiner’s Resistance stamina:
It's like a bad joke they keep telling over and over again until someone finally laughs. https://t.co/SBMFEyqemE

The Dems’ stunts are backfiring and yet they keep doubling down.
