Republicans aim to delay Trump impeachment trial - RTE

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell

Republicans in the US Senate have asked Democrats to put off the start of former president Donald Trump's impeachment trial until mid-February, to give him time to prepare a defence against charges of inciting insurrection.

It came after Democrats yesterday said that the House of Representatives could send the impeachment charge - passed last week in response to the deadly storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters - to the Senate as early as today.

Mr Trump, a Republican, left office on Wednesday and flew to his Florida resort, hours before Democrat Joe Biden was sworn in.

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell asked Democrats to hold off on sending the charge until 28 January and give Mr Trump two weeks from that day to prepare a defence.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's office did not immediately respond to a question about Mr McConnell's proposal.
