The Wall Street Journal reports House Impeaches Trump, Focus Turns to Senate Trial.
Democrats signaled Thursday they could delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, potentially pushing President Trump’s trial well into the new year, to pressure Republicans to allow new witnesses and evidence in the proceeding.
The House on Wednesday approved abuse-of-power and obstruction-of-Congress articles against Mr. Trump in the wake of his pressing Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. Nearly all Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), supported the charges, while the chamber’s Republicans rejected them, saying Democrats failed to show that Mr. Trump had committed a crime and that they had managed a flawed process.
