House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she will take steps next week to send impeachment articles to the Senate, after delaying the process since last month in a bid to extract favorable terms for a trial.

“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. I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote in a letter to colleagues, according to Fox News.

No wonder Pelosi announced she’ll finally send the articles to the Senate.
Hah! @SpeakerPelosi will not be remembered for anything but embarrassing herself and politically crippling her party during a presidential election year. The impeachment was a sham, Americans know it, & she’s responsible. She deserves nothing more than the boot in Nov. 👋🏻 https://t.co/84GiD84RC0— Kimberly Guilfoyle (@kimguilfoyle) January 10, 2020
