"The speaker [Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi] indicated with the full consent of the caucus that those articles of impeachment... will be transmitted to the Senate at some point tomorrow," Jeffries said.
The House of Representatives had voted along party lines on Dec 19, to impeach Trump for abuse of power and obstructing Congress for allegedly freezing military aid to press Ukraine to probe political rival Joe Biden.
Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and had been dismissing the impeachment inquiry aimed at reversing the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
