Delaying Articles of Impeachment Got ‘Positive’ Results, Pelosi Says

A House Democrat tactic of delaying the sending the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump achieved a “positive result,” according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

“It’s a positive result in terms of additional emails and un-redacted information that has come forward, that [former White House adviser John] Bolton has said that he would testify if subpoenaed by the Senate, other information that has come forward. And more importantly, raising the profile of the fact that we need to have witnesses and documentation” in the trial, she remarked on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Last week, Pelosi wrote to her Democratic colleagues in the House that she intends on sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate for the trial in the next week.

She elaborated on the development in the ABC interview: “I would be consulting with my members this week, on Tuesday morning, at our regular caucus meeting, that we would vote to send them over, and we will determine in our meeting when we send them over.”
