U.S. House of Representatives will send formal impeachment charges against U.S. President Donald Trump to the Senate as early as next week. It was stated by its Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Reuters reports.

Democrats have demanded it include new witness testimony and evidence about the Trump's pressure put on Ukrainian authorities in order to probe ex-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. 

U.S. Senate is expected to acquit Trump before the 2020 presidential election campaign heats up.

As we reported earlier, on November 18, U.S. House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump in a historic vote.

House approved both articles of impeachment: Trump was accused of abusing his power by asking Ukrainian officials to announce investigations into Bidens, which would benefit his reelection, and of obstructing Congress in its impeachment inquiry.

Meanwhile, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden stated that he does not mind testifying in the Senate as part of an investigation into the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump.
