U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), hours before the House managers arrived Thursday, criticized the signing ceremony that House Speaker Nancy Pelozi, D-CA) held Wednesday before sending the articles to the Senate.

McConnell noted the numerous pens emblazoned with Pelosi’s name in gold ink that she used to sign the document and then handed out as souvenirs.

“The pens literally came in on silver platters.  Golden pens on silver platters.  A souvenir to celebrate the moment,” McConnell said on the Senate floor.  “As though this was a happy bill signing instead of the gravest process in our Constitution.”

He mocked the event and how Democrats posed for pictures afterward, saying it revealed the impeachment as a partisan effort.
“It was transparently a partisan performance from beginning to end,”McConnell said.

McConnell ended his speech by declaring the “House’s hour is over.”
“The Senate’s time is at hand,” he said.  “It is time for this proud body to honor our founding purpose.”
