GOP Congressman Mocks Pelosi with 'Video Tour' on How to Find the Senate - WATCH
Chip Roy (Texas) had an idea on how to help the House Speaker
For weeks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has withheld articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump from the Senate, but Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) had an idea on how to help her.
Roy made a tongue-in-cheek effort to help Pelosi out by filming a guided video tour showing the route from the House of Representatives to the Senate.
The congressman tweeted on Thursday:
"@SpeakerPelosi can't seem to find the Senate, so I took the time to show her the path from the House floor to the Senate floor.
"Guess what? It only took 1 minute and 37 seconds.
"Madam Speaker, what's the holdup?"
The House Speaker told reporters she would send the two articles of impeachment along to the Senate "when I'm ready," adding that "will probably be soon."
But Republicans and even a few Democrats slammed Pelosi for the prolonged delay.
The House speaker insisted on holding the articles citing concerns over how the upper chamber will conduct its trial.

Earlier this week, Neon Nettle reported Pelosi is facing mounting pressure to send the articles of impeachment because a group of Republican senators introduced legislation that would allow the Senate to dismiss the charges altogether.
The efforts to force Pelosi to hand over the articles of impeachment came after former national security adviser John Bolton said he would be willing to testify in the impeachment trial.
“Since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study,” he wrote in a statement.
“I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify.”
