“Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Friday that the House will deliver its impeachment article against former President Trump to the Senate on Monday,” according to The Hill.
“‘Make no mistake, a trial will be held in the United States Senate and there will be a vote whether to convict the president. I’ve spoken to Speaker Pelosi, who informed me that the articles will be delivered to the Senate on Monday,” Schumer said from the Senate floor. [emphasis added]
“A spokesperson for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) confirmed the timing of the delivery.
“Under the rules for an impeachment trial, the article moving to the Senate triggers the start of the trial at 1 p.m. the following day, except for Sundays. But Schumer, in his floor speech, said he is having discussions with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) about the timing and length of the trial.”
