House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not want to send the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate where they will meet a "quick and hurried death," but she'll most likely send them around the first of next week, Rep. Doug Collins said Friday, adding that he and other lawmakers haven't heard yet when that could take place. 

"It'll be a short debate once it happens, but I have not been notified," the Georgia Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "I'm not looking for it today, right now."

The next move is all in Pelosi's hands, Collins added, and he thinks she's "in a tough bind."

"She understands her case has been very weak in the House," he said. "They know they're going to be exposed. She doesn't want to send it over to a quick and hurried death, which is exactly what's going to happen. But I think she will send them."

He also called Pelosi's call to know the procedures "disingenuous" because it's already known what is happening in the case. 

"The argument about an arena doesn't really hold true because you know what it'll look like," he said. She just needs to send her managers over to present their case."

Collins also doubled down on his comments that Democrats are showing they love terrorists by criticizing Trump for taking out Iranian Gen. Hassem Soleimani. 

"It is personal for me," said Collins, explaining that when he was in Iraq he saw the results of Soleiman's actions, including soldiers who were seriously injured or dying.

"It's very frustrating for me just to see that we don't call it what it is," and that complaints are made about Trump ordering an attack on a Soleimani, who was designated a terrorist by former President Barack Obama. 

"I think their actions betray them," said Collins of Democrats criticizing Trump. "He took out a terrorist and the world is a better place for it."
