Impeachment Articles Sent To Senate

The House of Representatives does its constitutional duty.

Washington Post:

The House voted Wednesday to send the Senate two articles of impeachment against Trump — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — and approved seven Democrats to serve as prosecutors in the third trial of a U.S. president.

The resolution was approved 228 to 193, breaking largely along party lines.

Pelosi plans to hold an engrossment ceremony at 5 p.m., and then the managers are scheduled to begin a procession across the Capitol Rotunda to present the articles of impeachment to the secretary of the Senate.

Update: Here is Pelosi, signing the articles.
