Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has signed onto a resolution from Republican Sen. Josh Hawley to allow for articles of impeachment to be dismissed because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still has not transmitted them to the Senate.
Hawley introduced to resolution earlier this week on Monday. However, Republicans don't have the votes to dismiss the articles.
Where things stand: Republicans are now anticipating that Pelosi will in fact send over articles soon.
Sen. John Cornyn said today that Republicans believe the impeachment trial will begin next week. He said articles of impeachment would likely come by the end of the week.
