Senate Impeachment Trial Began Today
After a month long delay, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has finally signed over the articles of impeachment to the senate. The articles for abuse of power and obstruction of the house were signed shortly after Pelosi appointed the last of the seven house managers. The managers, who will oversee the senate trial and act as prosecutors against President Trump, then physically walked the articles across the capitol and handed them off to the the senate and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just after 5 P.M. yesterday. And today, history was made as the third senate trial for impeachment began about 30 minutes ago with the house managers formally reading aloud the articles. It occurred just after Chief Justice John Roberts and several other U.S. senators were sworn in to serve as the jury for President Trump’s trial.
