The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives will vote on Wednesday to send formal impeachment charges against President Donald Trump to the Senate, lawmakers said on Tuesday, clearing the way for a trial that could begin next Tuesday.
"Sen. Sanders actually has a chance to win, but not now that Nancy Pelosi has held these documents", said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield).
Trump was impeached on two articles, for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, on 18 December.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a party meeting that she would also name the Democrats' team of "managers" who will lead the prosecution of Trump at the trial, Democratic congressman Henry Cuellar said. If the Senate approves the Kaine measure, the House could take up the Senate resolution and send it to Trump. The first article charges Trump with abusing the power of his office for attempting to pressure Ukraine to investigate a potential political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden; the second charges Trump obstructed Congress' investigation of his actions.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell opened the Senate on Tuesday scoffing at what he called the "bizarro world" of Pelosi's impeachment strategy that delayed transmitting the charges for weeks.
Trump has said he might block Bolton's testimony under executive privilege, to protect the confidentiality of advice that presidents get from top aides.
Republican Senator John Cornyn told The Hill news website that he expects all that could happen within this week, and that opening arguments in the trial could take place as early as Tuesday, January 21, after Monday's federal holiday. Allowing new witness testimony could be a double-edged sword for Democrats, as some Republicans have said they want to call their own witnesses.
Senators say if witnesses are allowed, some Republicans may also try to subpoena Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who served on the board of a gas company in Ukraine while his father was vice president.
A key question looming over the trial is to what extent the president will seek to influence the proceedings and limit witnesses who have direct knowledge of events at the center of the inquiry. Graham and Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo. are leading the effort to dismiss the charges against Trump.

"Democrats have called-have asked to call four fact witnesses and subpoena three specific sets of relevant documents related to the president's misconduct with Ukraine".
Some GOP senators want to turn the impeachment trial away from the Democrats' case and toward the theories being pursued by Giuliani.
But by next week, supporters will be competing for floor time with the impeachment calendar, and the timing for the war powers resolution is not yet certain.
Almost a month later, the California Democrat is now prepared to advance the process. At the moment, my Republican colleagues are opposing these witnesses and documents, but they can't seem to find a real reason why. That special oath, ever since the impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson in 1868, has required every senator to commit, on pain of perjury, to "do impartial justice". "In America no one is above the law, not even the president".
Bolton's remarks, which were recalled by witnesses in the House investigation, could cut different ways in testimony.
