Pelosi: Articles of impeachment will be sent to Senate to allow Trump trial to begin next week
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
