Washington, January 23
The US Senate will begin the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump on February 8, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.
“The Jan 6 insurrection at the Capitol, incited by Trump, was a day none of us will ever forget… healing and unity will only come if there is truth, accountability. That’s what this trial will provide,” Schumer said on the Senate floor.
The Republicans and the Democrats have 50 seats each in the 100-member Senate. The vote of V-P Kamala Harris as chairman gives the Democrats a majority. — PTI
