Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will finally hand over the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

From Axios:

“I am very proud of the courage and patriotism exhibited by our House Democratic Caucus as we support and defend the Constitution. 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.

“In an impeachment trial, every Senator takes an oath to “do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws.” Every Senator now faces a choice: to be loyal to the President or the Constitution.

“No one is above the law, not even the President.”

Pelosi has held onto the articles since the House passed them in December. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has consistently told Pelosi she cannot dictate the Senate impeachment trial.

Pelosi started to lose support of Senate Democrats this week. A handful of them, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) pressured Pelosi to send over the articles.
