Live: Pelosi holds Press Briefing; McConnell and Schumer Address to Senate this morning

Dec. 19 (UPI) — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — the two members of Congress largely responsible for where impeachment of President Donald Trump goes next — will lay out their plans Thursday after a dramatic end to Wednesday’s historic session.

After the lower chamber voted to impeach Trump on both articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — Pelosi was noncommittal about when she would name case managers and send the articles to the Senate for trial. Traditionally, in the only two other cases of impeachment, the articles moved to the upper chamber almost immediately.
