While House Speaker Pelosi has wanted to put the Trump impeachment first for the US Senate…
The others have pushed things back to help President Biden move ahead with the countries future…
Joe Biden was NOT kidding when he said he would work for some sort of unity….
This are the first steps….
The Trump trial will be coming in two weeks….
America is now about recovering from Trump’s damage and illegalities ….
Make no mistake though?
Donald Trump SHOULD be made to answer for his efforts concerning the Jan. 6 assault on the Congress and efforts to harm to his Vice President…
“The January 6th insurrection at the Capitol, incited by Donald J. Trump was a day none of us will ever forget,” Schumer said Friday. “We all want to put this awful chapter in our nation’s history behind us. But healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability. And that is what this trial will provide.”
Doug Andres, a spokesperson for McConnell, said the GOP leader is “glad that Leader Schumer agreed to Republicans’ request for additional time during the pre-trial phase,” calling it “a win for due process and fairness.”
The House managers and Trump’s legal team will spend the next two weeks drafting their legal briefs. Under the trial schedule, the president’s team will have until February 2 to answer the article and House managers will submit their pre-trial brief the same day. Trump’s pre-trial brief will then be due February 8 and the House will have until February 9 for their rebuttal, which will allow for the trial to officially begin.
Earlier Friday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed concerns by Republicans that Trump’s legal team wouldn’t have adequate time if the trial started next week after the impeachment article is delivered to the Senate….
