U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the House of Representatives will deliver the article of impeachment against former President Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday.

Schumer did not comment on when the trial will begin, but delivering the article triggers the start of the trial, absent a consent agreement between Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. While the transmission of the article launches the trial, the schedule ahead remains uncertain, and could potentially gum up fiscal relief negotiations and the confirmation of Biden's cabinet.

"The Senate will conduct a trial on the impeachment of Donald Trump," Schumer said. "It will be a fair trial. But make no mistake, there will be a trial."
