WASHINGTON – House Democrats are set to deliver Articles of Impeachment against former President Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday.
This move will formally start Trump’s second impeachment trial, but last week Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed to delay it until February 9.
This gives the House Impeachment Managers and Trump’s Legal team two weeks to prepare for arguments.
“The House managers will come to me. The Articles of Impeachment at 7 p.m. on Monday, that’s January the 25,” said Schumer on Sunday. “Then on the 26, members will be sworn in to sit for the trial. Cause remember the senators are jurors, the House is like the prosecutor and the Senate is like jurors.”
The former President is accused of “Incitement of Insurrection” in the January 6 breach of the Capitol Building by his supporters.
