House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday she’s preparing to send the impeachment articles to the Senate next week to start the trial of President Donald Trump.

Pelosi’s letter signals the end of the weeks-long standoff between the House and Senate over the articles after the California Democrat delayed sending the two articles of impeachment the House passed last month to the Senate. At the same time, Democrats pressed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to agree to have witnessed in the trial.
“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,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to her caucus. “I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further.”
