Sen. Baldwin Waiting To See House Action On Trump Impeachment

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that the House of Representatives would begin drafting impeachment articles against President Trump.

Wisconsin U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin says if the matter reaches the Senate, she will listen, as a juror would, to the evidence...

"Each of us will swear an oath to do impartial justice. I've seen a lot of the public testimony that has happened in the House. I have yet to hear President Trump put on his case. I assume at some point he will do that. And I will do my duty as an impartial juror..."

By Constitutional law, the Senate acts as a 100-member jury to reach a verdict on the evidence provided by the House.

Meanwhile, Trump was defiant, saying Republicans have never been more united as Democrats move forward with Articles of Impeachment against him. Trump tweeted that the Democrats are part of a "Do Nothing, Radical Left." He said they want to impeach him over "nothing."

Those testifying in the House hearings  allege Trump promised money authorized by Congress to be used to get political favors.
