House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told CNN he expects the vote to impeach President Donald Trump will occur on Wednesday.
He said he wants the articles to be sent right away to the Senate and not delay sending them over. That could mean a Senate trial in the first few days of the Biden presidency.
House Democrats formally introduced their resolution to impeach Trump today, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in last week’s riots at the US Capitol.
The impeachment resolution that the House is poised to vote on is the Democrats’ first step toward making Trump the first president in history to be impeached twice.
Hoyer also he said he’s going to a meeting right now on Capitol security surrounding the inaugural.
