Pelosi announced on Tuesday that the House will vote Wednesday on a resolution to transmit the articles of impeachment, clearing the last major hurdle before the Senate trial. Hours later, McConnell (R-Ky.) revealed that the Senate will begin its trial in earnest next Tuesday, when the chamber considers the rules package to govern the trial.
If the House transmits the impeachment articles on Wednesday, the Senate could swear in senators as jurors and take care of other housekeeping measures this week. And after Pelosi delayed for several weeks to send McConnell the articles in hopes of winning concessions from the GOP leader, Congress is going to start moving rapidly.
However, there's still plenty of intrigue. McConnell and his caucus are still debating how to handle the touchy issue of witness testimony. And while many Democrats also expected Pelosi to name the team of impeachment managers who will prosecute the trial against Trump, she declined to do so.
"I am not prepared to do that piece of it today," Pelosi told the her caucus about naming managers on Tuesday morning, according to Democrats in the room. Pelosi will hold a news conference Wednesday at 10 a.m. to name the managers, she announced late Tuesday.
The resolution the House will vote on Wednesday will do three things: transmit the articles of impeachment against Trump; name the team of impeachment managers; and provide funding for the trial. Democrats and Republicans will have five minutes per side to debate the resolution on the floor, according to rules established during the House impeachment debate in December.
Ahead of the resolution vote, the House Intelligence Committee released a trove of new evidence Tuesday evening. The materials include emails, encrypted messages, a previously undisclosed letter from Rudy Giuliani to the president of Ukraine and other information obtained from Lev Parnas, a Giuliani associate who currently is under criminal indictment.
