House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has vowed to keep the articles of impeachment away from Senate Republicans until they choose to hold a fair and honest trial. But that’s not the way Republicans want to play. Instead, they plan on letting time go by and eventually dismiss the impeachment altogether.
On Thursday, Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) took to Twitter to announce that he plans on introducing a measure to dismiss the impeachment of Donald Trump.
Hawley argued that normally “if prosecution doesn’t proceed with case, it gets dismissed.”
“So on Monday, I will introduce a measure to dismiss this bogus impeachment for lack of prosecution,” he tweeted.
This will expose Dems’ circus for what it is: a fake impeachment, abuse of the Constitution, based on no evidence. If Dems won’t proceed with trial, bogus articles should be dismissed and @realDonaldTrump fully cleared

Hawley’s pledge to try to dismiss the impeachment effort comes after Trump tweeted a quote this week from Fox News arguing for the articles to be dismissed.
