Where are we on impeachment today?

Amid a documents release from the House Intelligence Committee of Lev Parnas’s correspondences, the Soviet-born, now-indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani made a media tour to give his account of the Ukraine affair, in which he played a significant role. In interviews with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Parnas said that the high-level meetings he took in Ukraine were all done at Giuliani’s direction, and with an understanding that he was acting as an emissary for President Trump. The Representatives selected by Nancy Pelosi and approved by the House marched the two articles of impeachment across the Capitol Rotunda to the Senate. With the baton officially passed, the future of these proceedings is now in the hands of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican majority.
