Previously, the leader of the Republican senatorial bloc, Mitch McConnell, proposed to postpone the trial to February to give the former president time to prepare and study his case.

Democratic lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump for inciting a bloody revolt on Capitol Hill on Jan.6 indicated they wanted to start it quickly at the start of Joe Biden’s presidency because accountability is necessary before that the country and Congress can move on to other matters.

McConnell hinted in a statement Thursday night a longer deadline, in which the lower house would raise the indictment on January 28 to begin the first phase of the trial. The Senate would then give the defense of the former president and the chamber prosecutors a period of two weeks to present documents. Arguments would begin in mid-February.

“Republican senators are firmly united around the principle that the institution of the Senate, the office of the presidency and former President Trump himself deserve a full and impartial process that respects their rights and the serious factual, legal and constitutional issues at stake” especially in view of the unprecedented speed of the process in the chamber, McConnell said.

A postponement of the trial was to the liking of some Democrats, as it gave the Senate more time to confirm the cabinet members nominated by Biden and to debate the new bailout package.
