WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to send the article of impeachment against Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, launching the start of the former president’s trial on a charge of incitement of insurrection over the deadly Capitol riot.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the schedule Friday.
“There will be a trial,” Schumer said.
Trump is the first president to be twice impeached and the first to face a trial after leaving office.
The House impeached Trump last week for inciting the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot by Trump supporters.
