U.S. Senate receives resolution to impeach Trump

A resolution to impeach former President Donald Trump, who has been impeached twice, was filed in the U.S. Senate Monday night. The reason is the only article of the indictment, sedition. The trial of the former U.S. president will begin after February 8.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden, speaking to CNN, said impeachment should take place, but is not sure if enough senators will vote for it.

“I think it has to happen. It will be worse if it doesn’t happen,” Biden said in the hallways of the West Wing of the White House.

Biden added that the outcome would be different if Trump had six months left in his presidential term. Biden doesn’t think the 17 Republican senators will vote to condemn Trump.

Earlier, Joe Biden said that disagreements between the U.S. and Russia would not prevent the extension of START III. The new U.S. president advocated dialogue with Russia even on problematic issues and called on department heads to update information on problematic topics between the two countries.
