Nancy Pelosi announces she'll begin the process of impeachment articles to the Senate
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced late Friday morning she has begun the process of having the House’s articles of impeachment sent to the Senate.
“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,” Speaker Pelosi told House Democrats in a letter.

She will discuss with House Democrats on Tuesday how to proceed.
In theory, the Senate could begin the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump as soon as the articles are received.
