The House sent two articles of impeachment against Donald Trump to the Senate Wednesday in a somber procession of Democratic prosecutors -- the first step to begin a trial that is all but certain to end in the president’s acquittal.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invited the seven House impeachment managers to return at 12 p.m. on Thursday to read the articles aloud on the Senate floor. John Roberts, the chief justice of the U.S., will be sworn in at 2 p.m. to preside over the trial. He will then swear in all 100 senators as jurors.
