WASHINGTON — With a solemn procession through the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday, the House took the final, formal steps to pave the way for the third presidential impeachment trial in the nation’s history.

But even before Thursday’s swearing-in ceremonies could get underway, freshly appointed House managers were predicting that newly released evidence against President Donald Trump — with more possibly to come — would complicate Republican hopes of reaching a speedy conclusion.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., told the Los Angeles Times that he expects new evidence to come out during the course of the Senate trial, adding a possible element of surprise to the proceedings.
