President Donald Trump had a Twitter freak out Thursday morning as signs point to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi handing over the articles of impeachment that will trigger the Senate trial.
The House speaker will reportedly deliver the articles soon, but the House has not ruled out the possibility of reopening their inquiry and call more witnesses after former National Security advisor John Bolton said he’s willing to testify before Congress.
Pelosi’s move came after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell secured the votes to move forward with a trial without additional witnesses or documents — and the president seemed unnerved by the possibility.
“Pelosi doesn’t want to hand over The Articles of Impeachment,” Trump tweeted, “which were fraudulently produced by corrupt politicians like Shifty Schiff in the first place, because after all of these years of investigations and persecution, they show no crimes and are a joke and a scam!”
Some Twitter users blasted the president as being “terrified.”

She’s just forcing your sycophant Senate Republicans to treat the articles of impeachment correctly.
Also gathering more evidence on your guilt while the @GOP lawmakers dither.
John Bolton, Donald. Oy.
I can see why you’re so afraid.
