House Democrats deliver Trump impeachment charge to Senate

Washington: The US House of Representatives delivered to the Senate a charge accusing former president Donald Trump with inciting insurrection in a speech to his supporters before the deadly attack on the Capitol, setting in motion his second impeachment trial.

Nine House Democrats who will serve as prosecutors in the trial, following the clerk of the House and the acting sergeant at arms, carried the written accusation through the Capitol Rotunda and to the Senate chamber, following the same path that a mob of Trump supporters took on Jan. 6 as they clashed with police.

The Senate is expected to start a trial on February 9 on the article of impeachment against Trump.
