This afternoon, via Twitter:
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
This impeachment against @realDonaldTrump is a sham.
The House came to a screeching halt because they said impeachment was urgent.
So why did Speaker Pelosi play politics with the articles for nearly a month?
We need to do the work of the American people here in Washington.

As usual, there is much hilarity in the responses:
Another person lying to the Country… we all know why she held them back…. because Moscow Mitch and Lennigrad Lindsey promised that it would be shut down immediately in the Senate! The American people deserve to hear ALL the facts… the new GOP is an absolute disgrace!
Yo, Vickster, why did @senatemajldr McConnell and @LindseyGrahamSC announce that they had no interest in a fair trial? That they were going to collude with Trump’s attorneys for guidance?
Why would you expect Nancy Pelosi to rush toward a trial with co-conspirators as jurors?
So what you are saying is you think it’s perfectly acceptable for the president to withhold military aid and ask a foreign leader to go on TV and say he’s investigating a political opponent in exchange for release of that military aid? Why would think that is OK?
It’s not a sham though as Trump has more than deserved to be impeached, he’s lucky it’s only in two counts!
@SpeakerPelosi quite rightly wants a fair trial with relevant witness testimony & documents!
It how every other Court works!
Surely you believe in a truth & justice?
Actually it was a good strategy. Court ruling came through and Bolten said he would testify, more docs released from law suit, and Parnas offering to provide Ukraine docs to House. Probably other things we may not know about. Smart! You are not real bright!!!
Maybe because Mitch said he was going to coordinate with trumps lawyers and said on live TV the president would not be removed. #GOPCorruption #MitchItIsTimeForAFairTrial
Sham? A trial with no witnesses, falsely sworn and faithless jurors, and active coordination between the jury leaders and the defendant — there’s your “sham”.
Not a sham…a defense of our national security and 2020 elections.
The House has not come to a screeching halt, and hundreds of bills have been passed.
She wanted to advocate for a fair Senate process.
Talk to #MoscowMitch if you want some work done: he is holding up bills.
No, your defense of Trump is a sham unless you really think it’s acceptable for a US president to solicit help from a foreign country in order to cheat in an election.
To make it obvious to all of America that the GOP is rotten and not upholding our nation’s laws. All Americans should be able to claim that our laws no longer apply to them.
It is urgent and the majority of citizens want a fair trial with witnesses and testimony. The current GOP is a sham. You know why she waited and so do we, so stop jerking our chain and GET TO WORK!
Irony: The group photos the SCIF-occupiers posed for later, to document their willingness to compromise national security for job security, also included Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler, whose pinned tweet notes her distaste for “political theatrics.”
Why has @senatemajldr played politics with the hundreds of bills that have passed the House over the last year?
the evidence is abundant and clear. The President used the powers of his office to illegally hold aid in an attempt to extort a public statement about an investigation into his political rival.
and more evidence comes out every day.
It is not a sham, there is overwhelming evidence of his corruption, traitorous actions, and attempts to obstruct justice. And you, Vicki, are enabling him.
If you are remembered for anything at all it will be for your undying support of an evil empire.
She waited to have a fair trial for Trump. New details on Donnie are popping up everywhere.
I do not think the @GOP should be tweeting that the enforcement of the #Constitution is a scam.
Again, you insure you include trump in your tweet as well as use “sham” No truer sign of a weak leader. Thankfully many of your constituents can think for themselves, let’s hope you start listening to us.
Mitch is corrupt, we want a fair trial. Nobody is above the law.
Did you vote to abdicate your responsibility with reference to the war powers act? Why do we need you? Seems like that would be the work of the people.
Why, yes she did.
Speaking of scams as you count all the farm subsidy (welfare) checks you’ve cashed…
It’s real, all right. Are you OK?
So when will you start. I have never seen anything out of you since you went to DC
Actually it’s not a sham. This man is the biggest conman of our time. We need a fair trial.
Save it, Vicky.
Who votes for hacks like you? Seriously – people should have to take an IQ test before being allowed to vote!
The people of Missouri deserve to hear the witnesses and see the documents in a fair trial. It is not a trial if the evidence cannot be presented. The only sham are the ones trying to hide things from the people.
since there are literally hundreds of bills passed by the house waiting for the senate I don’t think you have any grounds to say that they are the ones not doing work—so let me guess —were you one of the ones who told on the republicans who wanted to limit trumps war powers?
Brown shirt says what?
In this same interview, your orange savior talks about using our troops as mercenaries and Saudi Arabia has already paid us 1B. Oh really? To what account? Are you ok with our troops being rented out?
Dear God woman, what is wrong with you?
Then why don’t you advocate for the Senate to hear witnesses and provide documents to exonerate Trump Vicky???!
Innocence is not proven by hiding witnesses and document evidence. Even if Senate does not vote to remove Trump he remains Impeached FOREVER
Prove it’s a sham
She withheld them because the witnesses and docs which would WAY further incriminate your cult leader would be too much for little Republican brains to fathom. So they’re just gonna pretend it doesn’t exist and exonerate him because that’s what little nazi’s do for other nazi’s
Message paid for by Russian Oligarchs for Trump super PAC.
Attempts to sound informed but full of falsehoods.
How many bills have passed from the House to the Senate? Oh and how long did repub’s have full control over both without doing shit? Just shut up. You don’t care about missourians, much less about americans.
No sham. At least the House Democrats defended the Constitution unlike the boot licking
@GOP. You’re an embarrassment to Missouri. #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
Why is #MoscowMitch sitting on 400+ House passed bills?
Why are you deceitful Congresswoman?
You only say what you are told to say. You are are an embarrassment
Your party is a joke – where is your moral compass?
You are another example of party over country.
Vicky, please pull your head out of your ass. Start standing up for our nation and not trump or his Republican Party. Protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and (as with trump) domestic! Stop being a trump sycophant.
