"We can not name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side", Pelosi told reporters, referring to the House "managers" selected to present the case for removal to the Senate.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell's plans for running the trial could be jeopardized if four of his flock break ranks - and that is the only hitch on the horizon now.
Even if you don't know the minutiae of the impeachment you know the respective party positions. Primarily, Democrats are concerned with how the Senate will run the trial against Trump, including whether or not it will call witnesses to testify.
McConnell has also openly stated he will be coordinating his management of the Impeachment trial with the White House, regardless of his having to take a trial oath to be impartial.
When asked about the specific impeachment charges, 53 per cent agreed that Mr Trump abused his office and 51 per cent agreed that he obstructed Congress.
"It's a setup. It's a disgusting thing they did", Mr Trump said.
The statement added Trump "is prepared for the next steps and confident that he will be fully exonerated".
Kim Kardashian says her unresolved feud with Kourtney Kardashian is "exhausting"
The rapper and producer's former love of his life and mother of many of his children died previous year from lobar pneumonia. If you noticed there was something off about Kim Kardashian West's family holiday card, you were right on track.
Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said political parties in the United States must have realised that they had elected the "wrong leader" as President Donald Trump was impeached. At a rally held during Wednesday night's impeachment vote in Battle Creek, Michigan, Trump dismissed the two articles as "impeachment lite" that "cheapened" the process by disallowing presidents to make phone calls. "I got Impeached last night without one Republican vote being cast with the Do Nothing Dems on their continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history", Trump tweeted.
Trump, 73, is accused of abusing his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate Biden, a former USA vice president, as well as a discredited theory that Democrats conspired with Ukraine to meddle in the 2016 election.
This could put off the trial for an indefinite period, denying Mr Trump his expected acquittal.
Gabbard, who represents the 2nd Congressional District that includes Maui County, noted that she voted for the impeachment inquiry three months ago and has since introduced a resolution calling for Trump's censure after disclosure that he asked Ukraine's president to help investigate already debunked allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
In a news conference late Wednesday, Pelosi declined to say when she would send the articles to the Republican-led Senate.
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Mr Trump had accepted the Speaker's invitation to speak. Republicans, she wrote, were "blindly" defending the president and "abdicating. legitimate oversight", while Democrats were driven by an "extreme" characterization of the president as a would-be dictator. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., doesn't want evidence or witnesses to be presented. Both were acquitted in the Senate and remained in office.
