Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told reporters on Tuesday that he will move forward with the impeachment trial of Donald Trump despite not having the articles of impeachment that are being withheld by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

McConnell said that he has enough votes in the senate to begin the trial without the articles.

“We have the votes,” McConnell said, adding that he hoped Pelosi would send the articles of impeachment prior to the trial.

McConnell also indicated that Republican senators are willing to move forward with a “phase one” of the trial before deciding whether or not to call witnesses.
