The United States Senate will move forward with a second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump on a charge of “incitement of insurrection” next month, a Senate leader said on Friday.
House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has informed the Senate she will transmit the House’s article of impeachment of Trump to the Senate on Monday.
Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues it “will be a momentous and solemn day, as the House sadly transmits the Article of Impeachment for Donald Trump to the Senate.”
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor on Friday, “Make no mistake, a trial will be held in the United States Senate and there will be a vote whether to convict the president.”
“It will be a fair trial. It will be a full trial,” Schumer said.
The House voted 232 to 197 on January 13 to impeach the former president for “incitement of insurrection”.
