"I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate,” Pelosi wrote in the letter. “I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting.”
Pelosi’s announcement marked a sudden reversal of her decision to delay the trial and try to force Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to commit to calling additional witnesses and evidence in the trial.
Senate Democrats pressured Pelosi to drop her attempt to draw out concessions from McConnell, an idea that she reportedly got from watching CNN.
The Senate impeachment trial will start sometime in mid to late January, instead of late December. There are 5 U.S. Senators running for President.
At some point in the near future, Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, and Michael Bennet will need to sit, without speaking, through the impeachment trial, six days a week.
With the Iowa Caucus on Feb 3rd, and New Hampshire Primary on Feb 11th, all of those senators will probably wonder just what their party got in exchange for this three-week delay.

Trump should have allowed Witnesses on the trial... As it is a trial...
Not letting your own camp testify....
And we all know MITCH already made it clear that he's not going into this lawfully since he already pledged his allegiance to the prez... Even saying so himself to reporters and the country.
Maybe those added to the reasoning too huh..
Or is that mental to even consider

*6 weeks is how long Bill Clinton's Senate Trial lasted. McConnell says he wants to follow the "Clinton Model" with President Trump's trial procedures.
