Nancy Pelosi Confirms Impeachment Article Will Be Delivered To The Senate On January 25th—Making Manner For Trump’s Impeachment Trial
#Roommates, his term in office may officially be a thing of the past, but Donald Trump still has very serious legal problems ahead of him – especially his impeachment trial. House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi just confirmed that the impeachment article against Trump will be sent to the Senate in the next few days. This is the final step in his second impeachment.
@ABCNews reports that despite a brand new administration finally taking over the White House, Donald Trump’s impeachment proceedings are still moving forward … and at a fairly rapid pace. House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi recently confirmed that the House impeachment managers will table the impeachment article against Trump on Jan. 25. Service of the article would initiate formal impeachment proceedings the following day, January 26th.
Pelosi also strongly pushed back against claims by the GOP that the impeachment trial schedule does not allow time for Trump to prepare his defense. In response, she stated that he “will have had the same amount of time to prepare for the trial as our managers”. She went on to add, “Exactly one week after the Capitol was attacked to undermine the integrity of our democracy, a bipartisan vote by the House of Representatives passed the impeachment article which is our solemn duty to deliver to the Senate.”
Meanwhile, the new Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer added his thoughts on the process and expectations of Trump and his legal team in the coming days.
“Make no mistake: there will be a trial in the United States Senate and a vote on the conviction,” he said on the floor of Congress.
You will recall that Donald Trump is the first president in history to be indicted twice after recently being indicted by Trump supporters for his role in the U.S. Capitol riot that killed six people.
