Trump impeachment article

Washington

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is set to send the Senate a single article of impeachment on Monday accusing Donald Trump of inciting the Capitol riot, formally triggering the first-ever impeachment trial of a former president. Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, vowed last week that the trial — already scheduled to open in the second week of February — should proceed, saying, “I don’t think it will be long, but we must do it.” But Republican lawmakers signaled over the weekend that Democrats may struggle to secure Trump’s conviction over the storming of US legislative buildings earlier this month, which left five people dead. Senior figures in Trump’s party have pushed back with both political and constitutional arguments.— Agencies
