House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she will take steps next week to send impeachment articles to the Senate, after delaying the process since last month in a bid to extract favorable terms for a trial.
I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate. I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further, Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote in a letter to colleagues.
The decision to release the articles came as fellow Democrats in recent days had started to voice frustration and impatience with the speaker's approach. They stressed the urgency with which impeachment was treated at the end of 2019 and questioned why the House would then delay a trial by using articles as leverage.
Asked about Pelosi's decision to move forward on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said: About time.
Pelosi nevertheless defended her approach in the memo, stressing important new information on the Ukraine controversy at the heart of impeachment that emerged during the interim.
I am very proud of the courage and patriotism exhibited by our House Democratic Caucus as we support and defend the Constitution, she wrote. She continued to press the Senate, as she has for weeks, to conduct a "fair trial" with witnesses and documents.
In an impeachment trial, every Senator takes an oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws. Every Senator now faces a choice: to be loyal to the President or to the Constitution, she wrote. No one is above the law, not even the President.

Hah hah - Nancy caves.
She has till Sunday, no more theatrics!
Or the month after.
What was the question again?
Dog ate her homework.
Censure the beyotch.
Good, now Mitch should slow walk the trial to keep Senators running for President from campaigning in the early primaries.
Oh boy, I guess we better hope President Trump doesn’t take over the entire world before Nancy stops pleasuring herself with her Articles.
wouldn’t it be funny if the resolution to send it to the Senate fails.
She should just drop them off from her broom. Obvious where she keeps it.
L’excuse du jour.
WHAT? She didn't say they were all "prayerful" in these dark times? She's slipping.
Her entire side of the aisle are loony dingbats. There's no way in Hell this is "defending" the Constitution. The word she was looking for was "shredding."
In the future impeachment will have lost all meaning and will just be another ordinary everyday tool in their toolbag to destroy a president.
If the Democrats had taken back the Senate in 2018, what would they have been able to change with impeachment in the Senate if they got over 50 Democrats, because you need 67 votes for impeachment?
What she waiting for? Why not today?
Folks.....Democrat, Nancy Pelosi is insane and so is the entire Democrat Traitor/Turncoat political party,.....they hate POTUS, Trump, they hate America, they hate the American people!!! Wise up....Americans...you have been had badly, starting with the true American Destroyer, ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama.
