House submits Trump’s Articles of Impeachment to Senate

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives approved a resolution Wednesday to transmit the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate, formally paving the way for a historic trial over the president’s dealings with Ukraine.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had been holding on to the articles — charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress against Trump — in a bid to extract favorable terms for the trial for nearly a month, but she ended her delay after Senate Majority Mitch McConnell made clear he was not willing to negotiate.
