Wednesday’s vote to impeach President Donald Trump now places his fate in the hands of United States Senators like Tammy Baldwin. The vote fell largely along party lines, with local Rep. Mike Gallagher voting against both articles of impeachment. The United States Senate now must act as jurors as the trial to potentially remove President Trump is expected to take place in the New Year. Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s vote, Senator Baldwin vowed to be an impartial juror in the proceedings, but admits there was some troubling information she took away from the work done during the impeachment inquiry.
Senator Baldwin may have to wait awhile after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters she would hold onto the impeachment articles until Republican Senator Mitch McConnell and Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer agree on trial rules she deems fair.
