Here we go again, I suppose.
The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump is imminent it seems, as Nancy Pelosi and the House have new decided on when to submit the articles to the Senate.
The House will deliver the impeachment article against Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, starting the process for the second trial the former president has faced for charges of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., confirmed Friday that the House would send the article in three days. While Trump has already left the White House, the Senate can vote to bar him from holding office again if it chooses to convict him.
The timing had been a bit of a concern for Democrats, particularly as President Joe Biden looks to hit the ground running as he takes office. A bitter impeachment trial in the Senate could gum up the wheels of government, and make difficult the often-routine work of confirming cabinet picks and the like.
Furthermore, some in the GOP are calling for the trail to be dismissed, believing that Donald Trump could once again “lead” the Republican Party. If he is convicted of inciting an insurrection by the Senate, Trump could fave a lifetime ban on holding public office in the United States.
