Senators To Be Sworn In Thursday As Trump’s Jurors

The Hill reports:

Senators expect to receive the articles of impeachment against President Trump from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday and then to be sworn in as jurors on Thursday ahead of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Pelosi says the House will vote Wednesday to send the two articles across the Capitol to begin the trial, and Senate rules require the trial to begin at 1 p.m. the day after the articles are presented to the chamber.

A vote on the organizing resolution, which would set up time for the House impeachment managers and Trump’s defense team to present their opening arguments, as well as time for senators to ask questions in writing to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, will happen next week.
