LIVE UPDATES: Trump impeachment trial delayed until February

Lawmakers
will
wait
several
weeks
before
carrying
out
former
President
Trump’s
Senate impeachment
trial following
a
brief
standoff
on
Capitol
Hill
over
timing, Senate
Majority
Leader

Chuck
Schumer,
D-N.Y.,
said
Friday.

Earlier
in
the
day,
Schumer
said
House
Speaker
Nancy
Pelosi,
D-Calif.,
intended
to
deliver
the
article
of
impeachment
against
Trump
on
Monday

thereby
triggering
the
impeachment
process.
Trump
is
charged
with
“incitement
of
insurrection”
in
connection
with
the
Jan.6
riot
at
the
Capitol.

Under
the
revised
process,
the
article
will
still
be
delivered
at
7
p.m.
ET
Monday and
senators
will
be
sworn
in
Tuesday.
But
each
side
will
now
have
two
weeks
to
prepare,
delaying
the
onset
of
the
trial
until
the
week
of
Feb.
8.
