Pelosi threatens to delay Senate impeachment trial
"Some legal scholars have suggested she could consider refusing to transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate". Those are Article I, Abuse of power, and Article II, Obstruction of Congress. The business of the US Congress is after all above the law. Members choose the rules of personal and legislative conduct predicated by the political expedience of the majority faction ruling each chamber. (archived: #FactsMatter?)
The US constitution does not require the senate to proceed from referral of articles by the house. Also, impeachment is not a trial. It's a morality play for public consumption.
Unfortunately, 319 days remain until US voters may attempt to execute the verdict, derived from findings of fact, findings of law, or, gosh darn it, Gödel's incompleteness theorems.
