After the Senate voted to acquit former President Trump at the conclusion of a trial that started earlier this week (that featured plenty of flip-flopping on the topic of witnesses), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed up to a House managers’ press conference and aired some grievances:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denounced the senators who made Donald Trump's acquittal possible as a ‘cowardly group of Republicans’ and blamed McConnell for not allowing the House to deliver the impeachment charge to the Senate while Trump was still in the White House pic.twitter.com/cVu6gtT8uL

Pelosi says she's crashed the House managers' press conference because of McConnell's remarks. She's livid because he was responsible for not starting the Senate trial while Trump was in office.
"It was not the REASON he voted the way he did," she says. "It was the EXCUSE."

Pelosi seems so angry that maybe she’ll go back to the House and initiate a third impeachment hearing!
