Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will send the single article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate on Monday.

“I have spoken to Speaker Pelosi, who informed me that the article will be delivered to the Senate on Monday,” Schumer said from the Senate floor.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has proposed delaying Trump’s second impeachment trial until mid-February so that Trump’s defense team and Democratic prosecutors have time to prepare for the case.

“I’ve been speaking to the Republican leader about the timing and duration of the trial,” Schumer said. “But make no mistake, a trial will be held in the United States Senate, and there will be a vote on whether to convict the president.”
