Clyburn says House impeachment vote likely to take place this week

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn has indicated the House could vote this week to impeach President Donald Trump but may also delay sending the legislation to the Senate until after many of incoming President Joe Biden’s Cabinet secretaries are confirmed for their posts.

Clyburn said “it may be Tuesday or Wednesday before action is taken, but I think it will be taken this week.”

Clyburn suggested Pelosi will decide on both impeachment managers and the timeline.

One option he floated was to give Biden the “100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running, and maybe we’ll send the articles sometime after that.”
