    Breaking: Democrats disunited on Trump impeachment timing

    Democrats are set to control not just the White House but both chambers of US Congress, yet they remain divided on the impeachment of Donald Trump.

    According to reports, US lawmakers are set to hold an impeachment trial after Trump becomes a private citizen.

    This is while the Congress also needs to get busy processing cabinet picks of the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden.

    “My clear preference is to create room for nominations and legislation. I’ll defer to leadership but I don’t know that we have to start the trial right after the inauguration,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

    Since Trump is leaving office later on Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) called another impeachment trial of Trump a “moot question.”

    “I think it’s a moot question. This president is leaving office so it won’t have any practical application. But whatever happens is fine with me,” she said.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) also suggested that the move would harm confidence in American government.

    “I was concerned about having the impeachment at the time we needed to put our government back together and build confidence back in our government.”

    The Democratic leader in the Senate has suggested holding nominations and impeachment in one day.

    According to Chuck Schumer, the Senate “has a solemn responsibility to try and hold Donald Trump accountable for the most serious charge ever levied against a president: the incitement of an insurrection against the United States of America.”

    The tug of war continues in Washington as the nation keeps suffering from ramifications of the coronavirus, which has left 400,000 people dead in the United States.

    “With cooperation, we can confirm key national security nominees at State, the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, Treasury, and the Intelligence Community,” he said. “The health and economic challenges our nation faces — the need to get vaccines out quickly —also require having key health officials and key economic nominees confirmed and on the job as soon as possible”

    Trump, who has refused to concede defeat, is attending a send-off ceremony at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Wednesday, which will be skipped by Vice President Mike Pence and a host of other GOP officials.
