Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, confirmed to reporters Tuesday that Pelosi intends to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate “at some point tomorrow.”
Jeffries, speaking at a news conference, said the House impeachment managers would be named before Wednesday’s vote on the resolution that will trigger a Senate trial.
He said Democrats plan to remain focused on “the stunning abuse of power” by Trump.
“He abused his power and obstructed a constitutionally inspired impeachment inquiry,” Jeffries said. “No one is above the law. … The next step is simple: The Senate should hold a fair trial.”
In response to a question, Jeffries said no decision has been made about whether the House will subpoena former national security adviser John Bolton.
Bolton, who declined to participate in the House impeachment proceedings, has since said he is prepared to testify in a Senate trial.
“Nothing has been ruled in, nothing has been ruled out, but at the moment the ball is in he Senate’s court,” Jeffries said.
