US House to Deliver Impeachment Articles to Senate

The U.S. House of Representatives is set to officially send its articles of impeachment to the Senate on Monday, charging former President Donald Trump with inciting insurrection in connection with the storming of the Capitol by a mob of his supporters earlier this month.The trial in the Senate is set to begin the week of February 8 after Democrats and Republicans agreed to a short delay in order to give both the lawmakers who will serve as prosecutors and Trump’s defense team time to prepare.  The extra time will also allow the Senate a chance to confirm some of President Joe Biden’s Cabinet nominees.Sorry, but your browser cannot support embedded video of this type, you can
