Pelosi Holds Firm On Transmitting Articles To Senate

The Guardian reports:

Speaking to reporters at her weekly press conference, Nancy Pelosi repeated her desire to understand the parameters of a Senate trial before transmitting the articles of impeachment.

“As I’ve said right from the start: we need to see the arena in which we are sending our managers,” Pelosi said. “Is that too much to ask?” The speaker added that she was concerned senators would not live up to their oath to hold an impartial trial to determine whether Trump should be removed from office.

“Nonetheless, at some point, we would hope that we would see from them what the terms of engagement will be,” Pelosi said. “We are ready, we are proud of our defense of the Constitution of the United States.”
