On Tuesday, US Senate received an article of impeachment against former US President Donald Trump as his trial is set to begin on February 8.

Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, said, "The managers on the part of the House of Representatives are here and present and ready to present the article of impeachment, which has been preferred by House of Representatives against Donald John Trump, former president of the United States."

However, the new US president Joe Biden commented on Trump's Trail during a short interview with CNN, saying, "I think it has to happen."

Last week, White House spokeswoman Jane Saki said that US President Joe Biden would leave the mechanisms of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial to the Senate.

In a statement, she added, “We are confident that the Senate can fulfill its constitutional duty while continuing to conduct the business of the American people.”

“He will leave the mechanisms, timing, and details of how Congress moves forward with the trial procedures to them,” she added.

Earlier this month, US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that former President Donald Trump’s impeachment confirmed that,’ No one in the country is above the law.’
