On Wednesday, the votes were taken, and Speaker Pelosi and the House have finally delivered the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate.
After the votes came back, seven Democrats, known as impeachment managers, marched the two articles across the Capitol to the Senate in a silent ceremonial procession.
With Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, at the helm, Senate GOP leaders are scheduled to accept the articles officially on Thursday at noon. McConnell said that the trial will begin “in earnest” on Thursday.
Before signing the resolution to transmit the articles to the Senate, Speaker Pelosi said,
‘When the managers walk down the hallway, they cross a threshold of history.’
Over the past few days, some pretty damning reports regarding indicted Giuliani associate, Lev Parnas, and his knowledge of Trump’s extortion have come to light, making many speculate (including myself) that perhaps this is why Pelosi decided to release the articles.
Intelligence Committee Chairman, Adam Schiff, said earlier today:
‘Additional evidence continues to come to light that not only has bolstered an already overwhelming case, but has also put additional pressure … on the Senate to conduct a fair trial.’
How the trial is conducted remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain — it’s going to be very eventful!
