US Senate to proceed with second Trump impeachment trial

The United States Senate will move forward with a second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump on a charge of “incitement of insurrection” as soon as next week, Senate leaders 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, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer announced.

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

“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”.
