House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she will send impeachment articles to the Senate in order for a trial to start next week, Fox News reports.

Pelosi wrote, “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.”

“I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” Pelosi added in a letter to colleagues.

Pelosi’s fellow Democrats started to voice their frustration and impatience as Pelosi withheld the articles of impeachment.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told to Politico “The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes. So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”

Several high ranking Democratic senators have reached out to media outlets to publicly announce that they are waiting for Pelosi to complete her part of the process. They have been waiting for the articles of impeachment for what they believe is an unbelievable amount of time.

The Independent senator from Maine, Angus King joined Feinstein, Doug Jones and Chris Coons have all told media outlets that they do not want Pelosi to hold up the process any longer.

“Pelosi nevertheless defended her approach in the memo Friday, stressing important new information on the Ukraine controversy at the heart of impeachment that emerged during the interim,” Fox News added.

Pelosi wrote, “I am very proud of the courage and patriotism exhibited by our House Democratic Caucus as we support and defend the Constitution.” Pelosi has been pressing the Senate for a “fair trial” with witnesses and documents.

“In an impeachment trial, every Senator takes an oath to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws.’ Every Senator now faces a choice: to be loyal to the President or to the Constitution,” Pelosi wrote.

“No one is above the law, not even the President,” Pelosi concluded.

More from Fox News:

Pelosi’s demands in recent days included calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to reveal the resolution that would set the terms for the trial before she would transmit the articles.

Pelosi and her allies seemingly wanted a commitment to call certain Democrat-sought witnesses, and at least learn more about McConnell’s plans. But McConnell wouldn’t budge, insisting that the Senate first launch the trial, and then resolve issues surrounding witnesses later, declaring that he would not haggle with Pelosi and accusing her Thursday of playing “irresponsible games.”

While Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had largely backed Pelosi in calling for commitments from McConnell, other Democratic senators began this week to pressure the House to get moving.

“I think it’s time to turn the articles over,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Wednesday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “Let’s see where the Senate can take it.”

McConnell has already confirmed that the resolution to govern the impeachment trial in the Senate would mirror the same rules set by a Democrat majority and used for then-President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999.

Once he receives the articles, McConnell said earlier this week he has the votes needed to pass the resolution and begin the trial.

While most resolutions can pass with a simple majority of 51 votes, there must be 67 votes to remove the president from office.

  1. Pelosi is the majority leader of the House. According to our Constitution, the action starts there. She has no control over the Senate impeachment trial except in that control she may exert over individuals in the Senate such as consistent party Senate representatives. The house brought the action on straight party line vote. For the Senate to continue to impeach President Trump at least 16 Republican Senators have to vote against Trump for IMPEACHMENT!!! I truly doubt that will happen…..

  2. NANCE IS THE BEST MAKE UP ARTICE I HAVE EVER SEE SHE SAID THAT DOING IT FOR THE CONTERTUTION OF THE USA BUT SHE LIES SHE DOING OT FOR HATE AND THAT IS NOT RIGHT SHE IS OVER DOING HER POWER SHE TRYING TO CONTROLE THE WORLD THAT WOUNT HAPPEN

  3. All i will say is they had better not say, by empeaching the president, that mine and 63 million other americans vote did not count. I am looking at 3 things. 1 the LIEberals will soundly lose the house. 2 the gop will gain 4 to 5 seats in the senate and 3 president trump will be re-elected and THEN the real investigations will start on the dem corruption. Get out and vote

  4. Fabricated lies from the leftists are not worthy of upholding. The Constitution has been trampled on by the Democratic party during this “witch Hunt”. Stop the madness and let’s get on with Making America Great Again. TRUMP 2020!!

  5. The treasonous lying pos will lose her job in November and be forced to live in the rat and plague-infested hometown of hers.

  6. I’ll give odds it’s all a ploy and game on drunken Pelosi’s part. She’s going to try to impeach our President for something else. That’s this old man’s thought and feeling! Any takers, lol!

    • Agree Joy.. None of their impeachment process was fair .. It was ALL a one-sided hateful lie after another. The GOP members were not allowed to do anything that might help find the truth during their hearings. But now she is insisting on a fair trial. Now she doesn’t want to trust the Senate to be fair, because she knows how UNFAIR the House was .. She wants it all her way.. Thank goodness for the Senators who are not falling for her game.. And for the Senators who might go against the President, you will be done in the next election.

  7. Every time she says that “The President isn’t above the law” I about gag. The whole Democratic party, mostly Pelosi and Schiff are constantly “above the law”. They are crooks and liars and manipulators.

  8. ” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told to Politico “The longer it goes on the less urgent it becomes. So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”” Can’t be too urgent, if they took a what, 3 week vacation around Christmas, now could it.

  9. Nancy Pelosi and her clown posse need to be impeached. People like this are a danger to our country. They are simply trying to change the 2016 election results and the most likely results of the 2020 election. They’re mad that Trump put a stop to their globalist agenda that they have been slowly progressing for decades.

  10. my is her and Didens son not indicted for their action in Ukraine, this is all too one sided why is Trumps lawyers not taking charges out against them and Clinton
