House to vote on sending Trump impeachment articles to Senate

House to vote on sending Trump impeachment articles to Senate

In Trump's trial, the momentum toward calling witnesses is coming from a core group of moderates led by Collins that have been given great latitude by McConnell and other GOP leaders.

While conviction in the Senate would result in President Donald Trump's removal from office, most Republicans have remained in the president's corner - arguing that the lower chamber's impeachment was a rigged hoax.

The California Democrat also warned the Senate, where Republicans have a narrow majority, against dismissing the impeachment case. It would require a rare rules change similar to the approach McConnell used for Supreme Court confirmations.

That trial included ten days of testimony from witnesses. At that point, GOP senators must decide whether to allow witnesses, seek to acquit the President or move to dismiss the case.

"It will fall to the Senate to end it with seriousness and sobriety", he said.

In an impeachment trial, every Senator takes an oath to do "impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws".

After passing two articles of impeachment through the House of Representatives on December 18, Pelosi has refused to send the articles to the Senate.

ABC's This Week anchor George Stephanopoulos on Sunday asked WaPo reporter Rachel Bade about Pelosi's claim, earlier in the show, that there was benefit to keeping the impeachment articles from going to the Senate.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supported simply dismissing impeachment charges against President Trump.

"We think there's enough testimony to remove (Trump) from office", Pelosi said.

He argues "Boeing needs a CEO with an understanding of aviation markets, program management, and most of all, engineering". Boeing said the communications "do not reflect the company we are and need to be, and they are completely unacceptable".

Faulkner followed up by pointing out that Trump's weekend message to protestors in Iran was "the leading Persian tweet in all of Twitter's history". While such as a resolution would mandate that opening statements and Senate questions come before a vote on whether to allow witnesses, the text of the resolution has not been released, in part, because McConnell has been surveying his members on the possibility of a motion to dismiss. "I am assuming that if there are no surprises, I will vote to hear witnesses after these introductory arguments".

One key Republican, Sen.

The House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler is likely to bring forward a resolution that will formally transmit the charges against Trump to the Senate.

Trump delayed almost $400 million in aide as Ukraine battled Russian Federation on its border while he pushed the country's new president to investigate political rival Joe Biden.

Joe Biden, whose son served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, is a leading Democratic candidate for the presidential nomination to face Trump in the November 3 election. No evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens has emerged. "We got issues. We got issues with Iran and North Korea and things like that". GOP Senator Rick Scott from Florida said Sunday that he wants to hear about the Bidens "and find out - find out".

'I've been working to make sure that we will have a process that we can take a vote on whether or not we need additional information, and yes, that would include witnesses, ' Murkowski told reporters.

The House of Representatives, where the Democrats enjoy a majority, had impeached Trump last month. Pelosi will meet behind closed doors with House Democrats to decide next steps on Tuesday morning ahead of the party's presidential primary debate that evening, the last before the Iowa caucuses February 3.

As soon as the senate led by the republicans receives the charge, the trial is expected to begin soon. House Democrats, who did not issue a subpoena for Bolton previous year, did not rule out doing so now.

People to defy congressional subpoenas from the House include Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's personal lawyers, and White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.

"She was clearly putting a positive spin on what a lot of Democrats have privately said was a failed strategy", Bade said.
