LEEF OPDATE: Republicans propose delaying Trump's impeachment to February

The Democrat-led House rushed a vote last week to impeach Trump vir “aanhitsing van opstand” after a violent mob stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and delayed the certification of President Biden’s electoral college win. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she expects to transmit the article to the Senatesoonto launch a Senate trial.

But McConnell told his GOP colleagues on a call Thursday that a two-week delay would allow Trump to ready his legal defense and ensure due process.
