Today, in a bipartisan way, the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States, that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country, and that, once again, we honored our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help us God.
And, now, I sadly and with a heart broken over what this means to our country – of a President who would incite insurrection – will sign the engrossment of the Article of Impeachment.
Le terme engrossment est relié au processus législatif aux États-Unis, c'est généralement le « formal reprinting of the bill in the form upon which the chamber will vote final passage ».1
Dans différents domaines on a en français des termes techniques employés pour des documents à l'aspect formel etc. comme expédition, grosse ou ampliation, plus utiles à la réflexion qu'à la traduction ici...
Dans une traduction des propos qui ressemblerait à « (je ... vais signer/signe) le/la [engrossment] de [article of impeachment] » ou autrement, comment doit-on traduire le terme engrossment, le cas échéant ; pourquoi ?
1 Dans Engrossment, Enrollment, and Presentation of Legislation, de R. Eric Petersen, CRS (notes omises, une note reproduite dans le corps du texte ; sur la destitution voir (ici et là) :
When either house orders the third reading of a bill, it simultaneously orders the engrossment of the bill. Engrossment is the formal reprinting of the bill in the form upon which the chamber will vote final passage. [In earlier times, such bills were handwritten in very large script, hence the term “engrossment.”] House and Senate Rules require that all bills, amendments, and joint resolutions passed in each chamber must be examinedby the Clerk of the House or Secretary of the Senate, as appropriate. Official engrossed copies are prepared by staff in the Office of the Clerk of the House and the Office of the Secretary of the Senate. The clerk or secretary are required to attest to the accuracy of the engrossed text by signing the measures. The House-engrossed measures, including amendments to bills passed by the Senate, are printed on blue paper; the Senate prints its engrossed measures on white paper. If either chamber later discovers errors in one of its engrossed measures, it may adopt a resolution formally requesting the other chamber to return the engrossed bill or resolution to it for correction.
An engrossed bill is “messaged” by the originating house to the other; the second chamber to act attaches the text of whatever amendments it adopts to the original measure it has received from the first.
