House Approves Impeachment Managers, Send-Off of Articles

It’s a big day for Capital Hill.

The U.S. House has voted to send the impeachment articles to the Senate.

For four weeks, the Senate has been impatiently waiting for the House’s impeachment articles so it can start the trial.

The House finally conceded after releasing new information related to the Ukraine scandal.

In Wednesday’s early afternoon vote, live streamed on 9&10 News’ website homepage, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, called up the resolution appointing impeachment managers.

There was a debate before the House voted.

Next comes the handing-off of the impeachment articles to the Senate.

9&10 News will also be live streaming on Facebook around 5 p.m. when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is expected to sign the articles of impeachment with the managers before sending them to the Senate.

Pelosi says she wanted managers with prosecutorial experience. Those managers were approved Wednesday afternoon.

The Senate impeachment trial will likely start early next week.
