The U.S. House managers walk to the Senate to present the articles of impeachment.

Seven House lawmakers called managers will prosecute the case. They walked the articles across the Capitol late Wednesday but were told to return Thursday for the ceremonial opening of only the third trial of a sitting president in U.S. history.

"The trial will commence in earnest on Tuesday," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Wednesday, after being notified the articles had arrived. "We will pledge to rise above the petty factionalism and do justice for our institutions, for our states and for the nation."

    A purely politically motivated move by the Dems. As if Obama, Bush, Clinton and a dozen other presidents have not violated their oath of office. The Dems didn’t get their lollipop and now they’re out for blood. They prefer risking war, economic collapse and the country going down the tubes, rather than seeing Trump reelected. So I’m not surprised that two Californian Democrats are heading this puppet show they call impeachment trial. Nancy’s obvious delight announcing the impeachment is just plain disgusting. That woman has some serious unresolved issues. And what about the “Pencil Neck” Schiff: “High Crimes, Treason….” The last ones to use this kind rhetoric were the Nazi’s in their show trials run by Freissler. Goes to show what sort of people they are. “Rule of Law….” These people don’t know the meaning of it

  4. Hahahahaha!!!!

    This represents the Democratic party? Pathetic. Their weak accusations wouldn’t and won’t stand up in a court of law. Biden’s real quid pro quo is the one that needs to be investigated and charged. Waste of Americans hard earned money.
