McConnell: Trump’s Trial Likely To Start Next Tuesday

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial could begin as soon as next week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday.

McConnell, R-Ky., announced the tentative schedule just a few hours after Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed she will send the articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate on Wednesday.

If that happens, McConnell said at a press event on Capitol Hill, then his chamber will be able to move the process forward this week by having Chief Justice John Roberts swear in, along with ” some other kind of housekeeping measures.”
