Trump impeachment vote: Will Donald Trump be impeached? Pelosi to lead House vote today | World | News

As leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi will decide which officials – known as impeachment managers – will make the case for impeachment to Senators.

Ms Pelosi has chosen not to reveal which representatives will take on manager duties, but as many as 13 people could do so.

If the resolution passes, the House Clerk and House Sergeant of Arms will lead managers through the Capitol building and present the articles of impeachment to the Secretary of the Senate, Julie Adams.

Once the articles have arrived in the Senate the trial can start, which will see Senators act as jurors to decide whether the President should be convicted of his alleged wrongdoings and removed from office.

Currently, this seems unlikely, however, as the Republican party maintains a strong grip on Congress’ upper chamber.
