U.S. Senator Jerry Moran has a new resolution he’s endorsing.

Senator Moran has joined other Republicans in co-sponsoring a resolution that would allow senators to dismiss the House’s articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Moran announced that he is cosponsoring the resolution with Missouri Senator Josh Hawley.  Fifteen other Republicans also are cosponsors, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The resolution is Hawley’s response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s delay in sending the two impeachment articles to the Senate for a trial after the House approved them last month.  Pelosi sought to pressure senators into calling witnesses, but says she plans to send the articles in coming days.
