After the articles have been “issued” – or read into the file – Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is expected to enter the Supreme Court to preside over the impeachment proceedings against the Senate. Roberts is sworn in by Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, President pro tempore – the senior Senator who presides over the Senate in the absence of the Vice President.

Once Roberts is sworn in, he is expected to swear in all 100 senators.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said earlier this week that he expected the impeachment process to begin in the Senate on Tuesday, January 21.

It is expected that all senators will be present for the duration of the process, which several senators say should take at least two to three weeks.

According to the guidelines of the propriety process, if Roberts arrives every day, the senators must “silently rise at their desks” and stand until Roberts takes his place.

Senators are expected to do the same if Roberts leaves the chamber every day.

The senators must refrain from speaking to the neighboring senators in the chamber and must remain seated every day throughout the process.

“This is a very important day for us,” said Pelosi on Wednesday.

“Time was our friend in all of this,” she added, noting what she called the new “incriminating” evidence that has emerged in the month since the impeachment vote on December 18, including new documents and other evidence by Lev Parnas. an employee of Rudy Giuliani, the President’s personal lawyer.

Schiff said the new evidence the house only revealed Tuesday night needed to be examined by the Senate.

At this point, it has not yet been decided whether the Senate will hear witnesses during the trial or consider new evidence.
