According to a new report from the Washington Post, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has circulated a memo to GOP Senators on how impeachment proceedings would take place in the Senate if the House were to impeach Trump a 2nd time.
The timeline indicates proceedings would “all but certainly occur after” Trump leaves the White House.
Per Wapo in the memo “McConnell’s office notes that the Senate will not reconvene for substantive business until Jan. 19, which means the earliest possible date that impeachment trial proceedings can begin in the Senate is the day before President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated.”
