(RightWing.org) – It wasn’t enough for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to officially pass on her articles of impeachment to the Senate. No, she had to do so while catching as much media attention as possible. When Pelosi signed the impeachment articles, which is standard practice, she made it a point for the nation to take notice of exactly how she signed the papers.
The commemorative pen she used was custom made and belonged to a set, which she then handed out to her House managers appointed to take this witch hunt to the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) lambasted Pelosi on the Senate floor over this flamboyant behavior.
“The speaker distributed souvenir pens to her own colleagues, emblazoned with her own golden signature, that literally came in on silver platters. Nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs as though this were a happy bill signing instead of the gravest process in our Constitution.”
The Senate impeachment trials are now official and there’s even a limited-edition commemorative pen to mark this “special” occasion. How trite.
