McConnell Will Not Consent to Reconvening Immediately or Before 19 Jan. to Consider Impeaching Trump.

Despite the House having gathered to vote on an impeachment article against President Donald Trump over his alleged involvement in the 6 January storming of the US Capitol, the Senate is not scheduled to reconvene until Joe Biden is inaugurated and Trump is out of office.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not planning to convene the Senate on 15 January and “almost certainly” not on any date prior to 19 January, his spokesperson Doug Andres has confirmed on Twitter. McConnell’s office notified Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of the Republican senator’s decision.

Note: He will not be “impeached” they will vote to impeach him in the house… but that’s it. It would need to go through Senate for full Impeachment and that is not possible with the timeline at this moment.
