Next Steps: Trump Gets Deadline to Respond to Charges

Next Steps: Trump Gets Deadline to Respond to Charges
(Dreamtime)

Thursday, 16 January 2020 05:28 PM

Next up in the impeachment trial process is an exchange of legal paperwork, and deadlines for President Donald Trump respond to the allegations against him.

Of course, he has been responding all along, and vigorously, through impromptu interviews and social media, denying the claims against him and the legitimacy of House efforts.

Trump will now be formally notified that the Senate has convened as an impeachment court and asked to file his response to the charges by 6 p.m. Saturday, according to a schedule adopted by the Senate at the end of Thursday’s session.

The House has until 5 p.m. Saturday to file its trial brief, and Trump’s lawyers must file their brief by noon Monday. If the House wants to offer a response, it has until noon Tuesday to do so.

And, in case senators didn’t get the message in letters from party leaders this week, Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger read a proclamation admonishing senators to keep silent during the trial “on pain of imprisonment.”

The Senate impeachment court will reconvene on Tuesday at 1 p.m.
