The historic impeachment lawsuit against US President Donald Trump will begin next week on Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced this.
Earlier on Tuesday (January 14), Speaker Nancy Pelosi ended the deadlock between the Senate and the Democratic Party-controlled House of Representatives, saying the House would vote to send impeachment documents to the Upper House next Tuesday so that it would take on these allegations Heard that Trump obstructed Congress and misused presidential powers.
Trump can expect to be acquitted like his two predecessors, Bill Clinton in 1998 and Andrew Johnson in 1868, as he does not have a two-thirds majority to prove guilty and be removed from office.
McConnell reported on Tuesday that preparations such as the swearing in of senators as jurors may begin this week in the wake of preparations for a trial before a formal start on Tuesday next week
Trump tweeted, “This disguise of impeachment is inappropriate.”
At the same time, Pelosi said, “The American people are entitled to know the truth and the Constitution demands a trial.”
