A top Republican Senator has said the United States Senate is likely to begin the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump on 21st of January after the House of Representatives last month impeached him for pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival. After holding it on for weeks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to send its impeachment to the Senate sometime this week and that could be as early as today. Following submission of the articles of impeachment, the Senate is likely to take a few days to deal with logistics of the trial. The Senate will also pass a resolution establishing the trial rules.
