On Wednesday, the US House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump under the charge of “incitement of insurrection” following last week’s Capitol invasion by Trump’s supporters. In this Q&A, LSE US Centre Director Professor Peter Trubowitz writes that what happens next depends on how soon Speaker Nancy Pelosi sends impeachment papers to the Senate, whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Trump’s conviction, and if President-elect Biden seeks to delay the trial to prevent it from derailing the priorities of his incoming administration.
