Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) promulgated Friday that former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment tribulation will commence the week of February 8th. “Both the House managers and the bulwark will have a period of time to draft their licit briefs just as they did in anterior tribulations. …Once the briefs are drafted, the presentation by the parties will commence the week of February 8,” Schumer verbally expressed in a Senate floor verbalization.
The development comes after Pelosi promulgated that the House will send its single article of impeachment to the upper chamber on Monday. The Hill reports:
Under the agreement between Schumer and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), the article will be read at 7 p.m. on Monday. Senators will be sworn in Tuesday and a summons will be issued to Trump. Trump’s response to the article and House’s pre-trial brief will be due by Feb. 2, and Trump’s pre-trial brief will be due six days later. The earliest the trial could start is Feb. 9, when the House’s pre-trial rebuttal is also due.
In a verbalization, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ‘s (R-KY) office expressed contentment regarding tribulation timeline. “Leader McConnell is jubilant that Leader Schumer concurred to “Republicans’” request for supplemental time during the pre-tribulation phase. Especially given the expeditious and minimal process in the House, Republicans set out to ascertain the Senate’s next steps will revere former President Trump’s rights and due process, the institution of the Senate, and the office of the presidency,” McConnell spox Doug Andres verbally expressed.
Last week, McConnell incriminated Trump of stoking the recent riot at the U.S. Capitol, in which five people died, including a police officer. “The mob was alimented lies. They were incited by the president and other puissant people, and they endeavored to utilize fear and violence to stop a concrete proceeding … which they did not relish,” verbally expressed the Kentucky Republican. “But we pressed on. We stood together and verbally expressed an irate mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation.”
McConnell has yet to decide on whether he will vote to convict Trump in the upcoming tribulation, while some reports suggest that he may have trouble holding on to his long-held leadership post if he votes against the former president.
“If he does, I don’t ken if he can stay as bellwether,” one unnamed senior Republican senator said, reported CNN. The lawmaker told the news outlet that “several of his colleagues held homogeneous views and asked not to be designated discussing sensitive internal politics.”
