Less than a week after leaving the White House, the Republican billionaire returns to dominate the news in Washington while his successor, Democrat Joe Biden, continues to sign dozens of decrees in an attempt to restore the world’s largest economy and fight against the epidemic.

The formal opening of this trial will be marked on Monday January 25 evening by a solemn ceremony.

Around 7:00 p.m. (00:00 GMT Tuesday January 26), “prosecutors” House Democrats will walk through the long corridors adorned with paintings and statues that separate them from the Senate to present the indictment of 45e President of the United States.

Donald Trump is accused by the House of having incited his supporters to launch an assault on the seat of Congress on January 6, while parliamentarians certified the victory of his rival Joe Biden in the presidential election.

The scenes of violence have upset America, and pushed several big names in the Republic to denounce the behavior of the stormy billionaire. But a Senate conviction appears unlikely at this stage, with the real estate mogul counting on many backers.

After the transmission of the indictment on Monday January 25, the senators, who will serve as jurors, will be sworn in on Tuesday January 26. But the trial itself will not begin until February 9.

Drawing a grim picture of the health and economic crises which “empirent“in the United States, the new Democratic president also hopes to take advantage of these two weeks to push for the adoption in Congress of several major measures.

But the centerpiece of his proposals, a titanic $ 1.9 trillion plan to revive the economy and fight the pandemic, may struggle to pass as it stands, according to early strong opposition from republicans.

Trial “stupid

Since Wednesday, January 20, the Democrats have taken control of the Senate in addition to the House. But their majority is extremely fragile: they occupy 50 seats in senators, against 50 for Republicans. In the event of a perfect tie in a vote, new Vice President Kamala Harris has the power to add her voice to tip the scales on the Democratic side.

A number that seems elusive, even if their influential leader, Mitch McConnell, has not ruled out voting for his conviction.

I find this trial stupid. I think this will be counterproductive “, thundered Republican Senator Marco Rubio Sunday, Jan. 24 on Fox.
