“We are going to keep the focus on the stunning, corrupt abuse of power engaged in by Donald Trump,” said Hakim Jeffries, chair of the House Democratic Caucus.
The action sets into motion parliamentary formalities over the next several days, with a Senate trial expected to begin on January 21 and run for at least three weeks, Senate leaders said on Tuesday.
The Democratic-led House on December 18 impeached Trump for abuse of power over his efforts to get Ukraine to launch an investigation into his political rival, Joe Biden, and obstruction of Congress for refusing to cooperate with the House impeachment investigation. Trump has denied any wrongdoing, labelling the impeachment as a “hoax” and “witch-hunt”.
