The House of Representatives is expected to vote this afternoon on an Article of Impeachment for President Trump. If Trump is impeached on that Article, the process would then move to the U.S. Senate, but that’s only if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer agree that it’s an emergency, which would force the Senate to reconvene. However, Sen. McConnell reportedly doesn’t agree that it’s an emergency.
Democrats won’t like this at all:
NEW: Senate Majority Leader McConnell will not agree to reconvene the US Senate before Jan. 19, spokesperson says, meaning a Senate impeachment trial would likely not begin until after President Trump has left office.
