The House will vote Wednesday on whether to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a private caucus meeting Tuesday.

Pelosi added during the meeting that she was “not prepared to” name the managers who will prosecute President Donald Trump, Politico reported. Wednesday’s vote will move the impeachment articles to the Senate, name the managers and provide funding for the upcoming trial.

Trump was impeached in the House Dec. 18 on obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. The impeachment inquiry is related to allegations that he pressured Ukraine to look into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Pelosi announced Friday that she planned to release the articles of impeachment, Politico reported. They have been held since Dec. 18. Around half a dozen House Democrats are reportedly going to serve as impeachment managers, Democratic sources said according to Politico. (RELATED: Media Gloats After House Votes To Impeach Trump)

Trump has called for the trial to be dismissed and repeatedly called out the impeachment process as a sham. If the House votes to send the impeachment articles to the Senate Wednesday, the trial can begin.
