WASHINGTON, DC – Joe Biden and the Democrat Party want America to heal and unite, but not until after they hold another impeachment trial against President Donald J. Trump. This week, Chuck Schumer revealed that the show must go on, even though Trump is now a private citizen, no longer President of the United States. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to make sure Donald Trump never shows his head in politics, ever again.

All in the good faith cause of unifying the nation.
“We all want to put this awful chapter in our nation’s history behind us,” Schumer said. “But healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability. And that is what this trial will provide.”
The impeachment is a first in American history. Never has a sitting President been impeached for his actions as President after he left office, not even Richard Nixon. In order to impeach Trump, Democrats would still need the support of 17 House Republicans.
Pelosi will deliver the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate on Monday.
“The House has been respectful of the Senate’s constitutional power over the trial and always attentive to the fairness of the process. When the Article of Impeachment is transmitted to the Senate, the former President will have had nearly two weeks since we passed the Article. Our Managers are ready for trial before the 100 Senate jurors,” Pelosi said. “I am confident that, strengthened by the new Biden-Harris Administration and Senate Democratic Majority, we can restore healing, unity and optimism to our nation.”
