Pelosi To Transmit Articles Of Impeachment Next Week

The Washington Post reports:

“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Pelosi said in a letter to colleagues Friday.

The House voted Dec. 18 to impeach Trump on two charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Pelosi held the articles for more than three weeks as Democrats sought guarantees about the scope of a Senate trial, including witnesses.

The House has concluded votes for the week, meaning the earliest the chamber could appoint House impeachment managers is Monday night. That vote is needed to trigger the transmission of the articles of impeachment to the Senate for its trial.
