Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi does not like to be questioned and when one reporter politely called out her impeachment stunt she snapped.
There are already signs coming from people on the left that trying to impeach President Trump is a waste of time and that Congress should move on with more important things. Additionally, Republican Senator’s like Lindsey Graham has threatened to drag out the proceedings if Democrats in the Senate call witnesses. Graham said that he will have the FBI testify and turn the trial into a circus.
Graham ultimatum got under Pelosi’s skin because when she was asked about it she snapped at the reporter and said, “your question is a waste of time.”

But that wasn’t all.
Pelosi snapped at another reporter when she was questioned if impeachment was worth it knowing that Senate Republicans are not going to vote to convict President Trump.
From the New York Post:
“They don’t know that. They don’t know that. They don’t know that. They haven’t heard the case. They don’t have the case. In the court of the Senate, they will make their case. In the court of public opinion, they will make their case,” she said.
“And we’ll see. We’ll see if it’s going to be a Senate of courage, or cowards,” she continued.
Republican Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) told ABC News George Stephanopoulos over the weekend that impeaching a former president is unconstitutional. When Stephanopoulos pushed back and asked if Trump should be censured Wicker reminded him that censured was offered and the Democrats declined.
.@GStephanopoulos: Should Trump be held accountable for his actions Jan. 6?
Wicker: “If being held accountable means being impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate, the answer to that is no.”
