Regarding the impeachment of former US President Donald Trump, the House of Representatives (lower house) has prepared to send a copy of the charge to the Senate (upper house) so that the trial can be conducted on trump. While a large number of Republican senators within the Senate have begun opposing this action. The senators plan to lighten the charges of blaming the former president on capitol violence.
Democrat Party leader Chuck Schumer has announced in the Senate that the impeachment trial against Trump will begin on February 8. Its process started on Monday. With the lower house sending a copy of impeachment to the upper house, both the houses start preparations for impeachment. The impeachment motion has already been passed in the House of Representatives.

These senators were also in favor of Trump before. On the other hand, Democrat lawmakers once again insisted that Capitol Hill violence was caused by Trump’s inflammatory speeches. Democrats are trying to prevent Trump from contesting elections in the future.

Of course, some people from Trump’s own party have been condemning him since the capital violence, but now that Trump’s presidential term is over, these people can also defend Trump. Although Republican Senator Marco Rubio said, I think this test is stupid. As soon as I get a chance to vote to stop this trial, I will because not doing so not be good for the country and will work for partition.
