"Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States." 

Today's vote will lead to a vote in the U.S. Senate that will hold a trial. With only one week left of the Trump presidency before the inauguration of Joseph Biden to become the 46th president of the United States, it was not know when the Senate will commence the trial.
