President Trump lashed out Friday at Democrats and an evangelical magazine that has called for his removal from office, as the timing and scope of his impeachment trial in the Senate remained in limbo and he prepared to head to Florida for the holidays.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is refraining from transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) sets rules for the trial that are accepted by Senate Democrats.

Pelosi’s move could push a trial centered on Trump’s conduct toward Ukraine further into an election year and deny him the swift acquittal he is seeking from the Republican-led Senate. The speaker on Friday invited Trump to deliver the State of the Union address Feb. 4, potentially during the trial.
