The Washington Post reports Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) is meeting behind closed doors Tuesday morning with fellow House Democrats as she prepares to transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate, setting the stage for a historic trial of President Trump.

The meeting could clarify the timing of a vote to name House impeachment managers and the subsequent start of a trial in the chamber controlled by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Senators have been maneuvering behind the scenes about whether the trial should include witnesses and who might be summoned to testify.

This comes after Pelosi faced heavy criticism that the Democrats rushed through an impeachment since “it simply couldn’t wait any longer” but once it hit the Senate, where it will fall apart, they stalled.
