Senator Dianne Feinstein has walked back earlier comments that implied House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should stop delaying sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate. 

Feinstein released a statement saying, “Given the importance of this additional evidence, it’s understandable that Speaker Pelosi has delayed transmitting articles of impeachment until the contours of a Senate trial are known. I do not believe that Speaker Pelosi is motivated by politics but by a sincere desire to ensure a fair process that allows the Senate to consider available evidence — a goal that all of us should share.”
