House to Vote Wednesday to Send Articles of Impeachment to Senate

WASHINGTON D.C. (WBAP/KLIF News) –  The House is expected to vote on naming the impeachment managers Wednesday which clears the way for them to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

The Associated Press reports House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met privately with her caucus Tuesday and suggested Wednesday’s vote, according to Democratic sources in a closed-door meeting.

The House voted to impeach President Trump last month on abuse of power and obstruction of justice charges.

The articles stem from Trump’s alleged request of the Ukrainian president to announce an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter on allegations of corruption ahead of the 2020 election while withholding security aid.

Meanwhile, a battle is brewing in the Senate over how the impeachment trial will proceed.
