Lawmakers will wait several weeks before carrying out former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial following a brief standoff on Capitol Hill over timing, 参议院多数党领袖 查克·舒默（Chuck Schumer）, D-N.Y。, 说星期五.
当天早些时候, Schumer said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif。, intended to deliver the article of impeachment against Trump on Monday – thereby triggering the impeachment process. Trump is charged with “incitement of insurrection” in connection with the Jan.6 riot at the Capitol.
Under the revised process, the article will still be delivered at 7 下午. ET Monday and senators will be sworn in Tuesday. But each side will now have two weeks to prepare, delaying the onset of the trial until the week of Feb. 8.
