Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said that the U.S. House of Representatives will deliver the impeachment charges against President Trump on Monday, January 25.
“The House will deliver the article of impeachment to the Senate. The Senate will conduct a trial of the impeachment of Donald Trump. It will be a full trial. It will be a fair trial.”
Of course, there’s no assurance of that, since the Senators acting as the jury aren’t bound by traditional laws, and there’s no appeal.
There’s no resolution on how the Senate will handle the trial. Current rules require the Senate to take up the matter before all others, which would bring Biden’s agenda, and appointments, to a standstill.
The two parties have discussed splitting the Senate’s duties each day, spending some hours on regular business and others on the impeachment.
