Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) has one message for House Democrats: “Urinate or get off the pot.”
The Republican lawmaker blasted House Democrats for passing messaging bills and harassing the president while doing “nothing, zero, zilch, nada” in regard to passing legislation.
“The House leadership needs to urinate or get off the pot,” Kennedy said during Wednesday’s floor speech. “The House leadership needs to indict the president of the United States, impeach him, and let us hold a trial. He won’t be convicted.
“Or they need to go ahead and hold in contempt every single member of the Trump administration so we can move those issues into our court system and get back to doing the people’s business,” he added.
Kennedy then said:
“What I hope happens, Mr. President, is that my friends in the House leadership and the administration sit down and talk, not talk like 8-year-olds in the back of a minivan fighting, but talk constructively about how their behavior could impact important institutions in this country and work it out.”

Kennedy’s remarks come as multiple congressional Democrats are pressing for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday she believes Trump is “engaged in a cover-up.”
