Trump has spent a chunk of his December vacation at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida complaining about Pelosi's decision to withhold the two articles of impeachment from the Senate until after lawmakers return from recess.

"They produced no case so now she doesn’t want to go to the Senate. She’s all lies. Most overrated person I know!" Trump tweeted Tuesday.

The House voted earlier this month to impeach Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress following an investigation into his conduct toward Ukraine. Democrats alleged the president made security assistance and a White House meeting for Ukraine contingent on the country announcing investigations into Trump's rivals.

The Speaker's decision to hold onto the articles has proven to be a sticking point for Trump, who has tweeted more than a dozen times about Pelosi since arriving at his West Palm Beach property.
