Lawmakers will wait several weeks before carrying out former President Trump's Senate impeachment trial after a brief standoff on Capitol Hill over time, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Friday.
Earlier in the day, Schumer said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., intended to deliver the post of impeachment from Trump on Monday -- thus triggering the impeachment procedure. Trump is charged with"incitement of insurrection" in relation to the Jan.6 riot in the Capitol.
Under the revised process, the guide will still be delivered at 7 p.m. ET Monday and senators will be sworn in Tuesday. But every side will now have two weeks to prepare, delaying the onset of the trial until the week of Feb. 8.
