Chicago Tribune has more to say on Pelosi signing the articles of impeachment:

In a dramatic procession across the U.S. Capitol, Democratic House leaders marched the formal articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate late Wednesday, setting the stage for only the third trial to remove a president in American history.

    

Trump complained anew it was all a “hoax,” even as fresh details emerged about his efforts in Ukraine.

     

The ceremonial pomp and protocol by lawmakers who will be prosecuting the case against Trump moved the impeachment out of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic-run House to the Republican-majority Senate, where the president’s team is mounting a defense aiming for swift acquittal.

    

“Today we will make history,'' Pelosi said as she signed the documents, using multiple pens to hand out and mark the moment. “This president will be held accountable."

The Blaze said this on Pelosi's souvenir pens:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took heavy criticism across the political spectrum after signing the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, for using the ceremony to hand out pens to fellow Democrats as mementos of the occasion.

The signing ceremony was covered live by CNN, and social media quickly lit up with pundits slamming the optics of Pelosi smiling while divvying out the pens to impeachment managers and others while appearing to celebrate after months of referring to impeachment as a "sad" and "somber" effort on the part of Democrats.

Self-proclaimed never-Trumper Tom Nichols tweeted that "Pelosi has handled the optics of impeachment well, right until that signing ceremony, which was awkward. Handing out pens should have been done in private. This was not some celebratory moment."

        

GOP National Spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington posted a video of Pelosi's pen distribution, saying, "You know what you hand out pens for? Accomplishments." After noting President Trump's signing of a trade deal with China, Harrington added, "So it's fitting that Democrats are handing out pens for their sole accomplishment: impeachment."
