How do you feel about Pelosi delaying the impeachment trial?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a private caucus of Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday that she will likely hold a vote on a resolution that would transmit the articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate on Wednesday, Axios has confirmed.
Why it matters: The vote would end Pelosi's pressure campaign against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to allow additional documents and witnesses in the Senate's impeachment trial — and allow it to officially kick off in the coming days.
- Of note: Pelosi reportedly declined to name those who would serve as impeachment managers in the Senate trial during the caucus meeting.
What's next, via Axios' Alayna Treene: The first few days of trial are expected to be procedural — including the swearing-in of Chief Justice John Roberts, senators as jurors and additional housekeeping items.
- Simultaneously, senators will debate the resolution laying out the terms for the trial, a Republican leadership aide told Axios.
The big picture: Pelosi recently defended her decision to delay the impeachment trial by several weeks, and she said the ball is now in McConnell's court.
- She said McConnell will be held "accountable to the American people."
- In December, McConnell said he would not be an impartial juror during the Senate trial, calling it a "political process."
