Jeffries: Pelosi Indicated the Articles of Impeachment Will Be Transmitted Tomorrow

‘The Speaker indicated with the full consent of the caucus that those Articles of Impeachment … will be transmitted to the Senate at some point tomorrow’

EXCERPT:

JEFFRIES: "We of course had a discussion that was led by Speaker Pelosi along with Chairman Nadler and Chairman Schiff about the next steps in the impeachment proceeding. The Speaker indicated, with the full consent of the caucus, that those articles of impeachment, one, abuse of power; two, obstruction of Congress, will be transmitted to the Senate at some point tomorrow. The Speaker indicated that at some point between the moment that we are in right now and the resolution being debated on the floor, that individual impeachment managers will be named. We're going to keep the focus on the stunning corrupt abuse of power engaged in by Donald Trump, who pressured the foreign government to target an American citizen for political gain, and at the same time withheld without justification $391 million in military aid to a vulnerable Ukraine as part of a geopolitical shakedown scheme. That is why Donald Trump has been impeached, because he abused his power and obstructed a constitutionally inspired impeachment inquiry. And in America no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States of America.”
