It's becoming increasingly clear Speaker Nancy Pelosi has completely bungled the impeachment process in the House as Democrats in her caucus start to abandon her efforts to hold the articles indefinitely. 

The dam on Pelosi's antics started to break earlier this week when Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein questioned Pelosi's strategy of trying to control the Senate trial by holding the articles. 

"The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes. So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over,” Feinstein told POLITICO

“I respect the fact that she is concerned about the fact about whether or not there will be a fair trial. But I do think it is time to get on with it,” Democrat Senator Chris Coons added.

As the process drags on, we're now learning where Pelosi got the idea to hold the articles. 

In the meantime, Republicans are taking full advantage of Democrat mismanagement and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is winning this battle.
