The Senate Formally Accepts Trump Impeachment Articles

The Democrats' lead impeachment manager, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), formally read the articles of impeachment against President Trump on the Senate floor on Thursday, kicking off the Senate trial. The two articles, which were passed by the House last month, are abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.


All seven Democratic impeachment managers waltzed into the Senate ahead of the readings.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who will preside over the trial, will swear in the impeachment managers Thursday at 2 p.m. In their oaths, the Democrats will have to pledge to be "impartial jurors."

Thursday's proceedings may have seemed somber, but it was a different story Wednesday night when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi actually signed the impeachment articles. She smiled for the cameras and handed out some celebratory signature pens at the ceremony.


The Senate impeachment trial will begin next Tuesday morning.


UPDATE (Matt): Chief Justice John Roberts is at the Senate now, he's been sworn in for the impeachment trial, U.S. Senators now signing the oath book and being sworn in as well. 


UPDATE II (Matt): The stage is set. Senate will send notice to the White House about the trial. Senate is in recess, will return January 21 at 1 PM.
