WATCH: McConnell Slams Pelosi in Floor Speech Following Impeachment Vote

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) laid into Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday for going through with the impeachment of President Trump despite zero House Republicans voting in favor of it because of its "sloppy" process.

"Back in June, Speaker Pelosi promised the House would build an ironclad case. Never mind that she was basically promising impeachment months, months before the Ukraine events, but that’s a separate matter. She promised an ironclad case. And in March, Speaker Pelosi said this: 'Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there is something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country,' end quote," McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor.

"By the Speaker’s own standards, the standards she set, she has failed the country," he continued. "The case is not compelling, not overwhelming, and as a result not bipartisan. The failure was made clear to everyone earlier this week when Senator Schumer began searching for ways the Senate could step out of our proper role and try to fix the House Democrats’ failures for them."

Trump was impeached on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress charges after a full day of debate in the House on Wednesday.  McConnell then criticized Pelosi after she indicated they will not send the articles to the Senate until there are assurances the upcoming trial will be fair.

"And it was made even more clear last night when Speaker Pelosi suggested that House Democrats may be too afraid, too afraid to even transmit their shoddy work product to the Senate. Mr. President, it looks like the prosecutors are getting cold feet. In front of the entire country and second-guessing whether they even want to go to trial," McConnell said.
