Moran signs onto proposal on dismissing impeachment articles

US House moving to send impeachment to Senate next week Pelosi will not send impeachment articles to Senate today
Travis Berry | 15 January, 2020, 00:26

So it's official: Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her caucus that the House will vote on Wednesday (with a spare five minutes of debate per side) on a resolution that will appoint impeachment managers who will present the case for Trump's removal from office in the Senate, authorize them to transmit the two previously passed articles of impeachment to the upper chamber, and cover the costs associated with the trial itself.

"[McConnell] ought to think carefully about the oath that he swore and let the president tweet away, but he should do his job independent of what the president's obviously biased position might be", Kildee said.

Gardner and Alexander have both said the Senate trial should be fair and impartial. We have done our job.

Pelosi claimed she will send out the write-ups of impeachment to the Senate today. There's nothing that the Senate can do that can ever erase that, she said. "He must be a Witness, and so should she!"

Trump's conviction in the trial is highly unlikely, given Republicans' 53-47 control of the Senate, and the high two-thirds vote threshold required to find him guilty.

This is a constitutional challenge, and we feel very proud of the courage of our members to vote to impeach the president.

In the Senate, Trump is expected to face friendlier terrain than he did in the House, and ultimately the chamber is expected to vote to acquit the president even though some moderates have bristled over McConnell's reflexive support for Trump. "I agree!" the president tweeted Sunday.

Rick Scott (R-FL) decried House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her tactics regarding President Donald Trump's impeachment.

At the same time, a key centrist GOP Sen.

During an appearance on Fox News Channel's "Sunday Morning Futures", Sen.

A prominent Republican, Senator Lindsey Graham from SC, has already predicted that the trial would end "within a few days".

"I tend to like information", she said.

On December 18, President Trump was impeached by the Democrat-led House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Trump is accused of pushing Ukraine into investigating his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

Senators says if witnesses are allowed, some Republicans may also try to subpoena Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who served on the board of a gas company in Ukraine while his father was vice president. "A vast majority want the Do Nothing Democrats to move on to other things now!" It also would take only 51 senators to vote to dismiss the charges against Trump. Others have raised the alarm about the alternative foreign policy towards Ukraine led by Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

McConnell has yet to say definitively how the Senate will conduct the trial, but he has hinted he could skip witnesses and instead oversee a process that quickly dispatches with the charges.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., arrives to meet with reporters following escalation of tensions this week between the US and Iran, Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Now, the Senate, where the Republicans are in majority, needs to put Trump on trial before he can be removed from the White House. That's just one of the crucial decisions that McConnell will make or at least influence.

"If McConnell succeeds in making this trial a trial without witnesses...." "A fair trial seeks the truth". "That's a sham", he said.

Trump swiftly signaled his intention of blocking any testimony from John Bolton, the brash former national security adviser who could be a wildcard witness in the trial.

It has been nearly four weeks since the House voted to impeach Trump over his dealings with Ukraine.

Bolton is a brash figure and his outspoken comments could cut different ways in testimony.

"Ït's certainly something that we are considering", Schiff said. He said earlier he has direct knowledge of the events on which the impeachment articles revolve.

Trump has branded the case a "hoax" and a "witch hunt" but the White House is girding for a trial that could present damaging evidence against the United States leader on national television over two weeks or more.

But Schumer said if Bolton is subpoenaed, Trump's executive privilege won't stop him from testifying.
