Pelosi still sees the impeachment trial as an "urgent" matter.

It did not become less urgent because the Articles of Impeachment were passed out of the House. It did not become less urgent because Trump and McConnell planned to fix the vote in the Senate. It has become more urgent.

It is still urgent that the Senate hear the evidence. It is still urgent that the Senate hear witnesses that have first-hand evidence of the charges.

It is not less urgent because Pelosi is not ready to have the charges covered up or dismissed outright. The urgency for a fair trial is still there, contrary to what Donald Trump might tweet?

Trump is still a threat to our national security. An unfair and fixed jury does nothing to alleviate the urgency of this crisis.

1. Of course. The DC media are bored and up to their usual mischief.

In a better world they'd be washing windows or put in storage when congress was out of session.

4. They are following Trump's tweets, for sure.

He was tweeting this morning about how the Democrats said it was "urgent" because he was a threat to national security and now they want to slow it down. He called them "liars!"

It's just not fair if it doesn't move at the speed he wants. He wants it fixed. He wants the Republicans to get in line and exonerate him.

2. It's also urgent for the citizens to hear the evidence.

I'm sure that all the Senators know what that evidence is but we, the people, do not. And, the Senators know that if we do hear the evidence then the house of card will collapse.

3. True.

They have no idea how the public might react to an unfair trial by the Republicans.
