Impeachment 'papers' going to Senate: top House Dem

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana, said he 'hoped' the Senate would receive the formal impeachment charges next week and said the impeachment case put together by Democrats was "weak." The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives will send formal impeachment charges against President Donald Trump to the Senate as early as next week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday, setting the stage for his long-awaited trial.

In a letter to House lawmakers, Pelosi said she has asked House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler to "be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate." "I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further," Pelosi, the top Democrat in the House, said in the letter.

The House impeached Trump last month on charges that he abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate a domestic political rival and obstructed efforts by Congress to investigate the alleged misconduct.

But a trial to determine his guilt or innocence cannot begin in the Republican-controlled Senate until the House transmits the charges.
