Trump article of impeachment to go to Senate Monday - AA

Trump article of impeachment to go to Senate Monday

The Article of Impeachment will go to the Senate Monday, igniting the beginning of the impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday.

“Make no mistake: a trial will be held in the United States Senate, and there will be a vote on whether to convict,” said Schumer at Senate floor.

He said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi advised that the article of impeachment – spurred by Trump’s alleged role in sparking the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol – will be delivered Monday. Both Schumer and Pelosi are Democrats.

Later, Pelosi in a statement confirmed that the article of impeachment for "incitement of insurrection" by Trump will be delivered to the Senate on Monday.

The trial could begin Tuesday unless senators reach a decision to delay it, but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, has stated his wish that the trial be delayed to February to give Trump’s lawyers a chance to prepare their client’s defense....
