US House delivers Trump impeachment article to Senate

The House impeachment case against Donald Trump has been delivered to the Senate for his upcoming trial, CNN reported on Tuesday.

Walking from one side of the US Capitol to the other, nine House managers appointed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi hand-delivered the impeachment document to the Senate on Monday evening.

Under the US Constitution, impeachment hearings must begin the day after the documents placed in the Senate. But senators could take another two weeks to begin the hearing, as new President Joe Biden's cabinet is not yet complete.

All the members of Congress who took the impeachment motion are from the Democratic Party. The other eight members are Diana Degette, David Sicilini, Joaquin Castro, Eric Salwell, Ted Liu, Stacey Plasket, Joe Negus, and Madeleine Dean. They will argue in the Senate why Trump should be indicted.

The House impeached Trump on January 13 on the same charge – making him the first president in US history to be impeached twice.

According to CNN, Trump is making legal preparations to address the impeachment hearing in the Senate.

It is learned that the former president is staying in Florida after leaving the White House. He spends most of his time there playing golf.
