  • Due to Trump’s trial, delivery of the third check would be delayed
  • The consequences of the attack on the Capitol have ‘extended’ until the delivery of the third check
  • The second impeachment trial for Trump has changed the agenda of Congress

Because of the second political trial against former President Donald Trump, he would delay the delivery of the third check if it is approved in Congress.

Trump will face the second impeachment against him, which will lead the United States Senate to delay activities such as the discussion on the third check, among other issues, to address this controversial process, reports the Herald of Mexico.

How long would the third check be late?

With these issues on the Senate’s doorstep, the vote is expected to be delayed until the end of February once the trial against Trump concludes.

Even after the approval of the economic package proposed by President Biden and which includes the expected third check, it takes weeks to process payments, something that happened in a similar way with the delivery of the first and second checks. However, the Internal Revenue Service could start with the delivery more quickly with those Americans who are already registered in its database.

Second impeachment against Trump

Soon the United States Senate will be forced to decide whether or not to find former President Donald Trump guilty of inciting insurrection. The trial formally begins Tuesday, the first of a president who is no longer in office, The Associated Press reports.

Although they are expected to acquit Trump, the 100 senators will have to sit down first to listen to hours of explicit testimony about the violent mob of Trump supporters that besieged the Capitol from the United States on January 6, causing five deaths.

On January 13, the House of Representatives voted 232-197 in favor of starting a second impeachment process for Trump, a week after the violence.

Republicans and Trump’s lawyers argue that the trial is unnecessary, and even unconstitutional, because Trump is no longer president and cannot be removed from office.

How does the trial work?

The Constitution says that the House of Representatives has the exclusive power to approve the initiation of an impeachment, while the Senate has the exclusive power to try the individual on the charges, notes The Associated Press.

The accused person, who can be the president, vice president, or any civil servant of the United States, can be found guilty with a two-thirds majority of the senators present.

The House of Representatives appoints the “impeachment managers” as prosecutors to be installed in the Senate to present their case, in front of the defendant’s attorneys.

Prosecutors and Trump’s defense team will have a set amount of time to present arguments, and then senators can ask questions in writing before the final vote.

The Chief Justice of the United States normally presides over a president’s trial, but because Trump has left office, the president will be Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, who is the ceremonial head of the Senate for having been the longest-serving majority party member.

Once the senators come to a final vote on the impeachment charge, each legislator will stand up and cast their vote: guilty or not guilty.

How long is the impeachment trial?

That is unclear. The Senate has to accept the rules of the trial and party leaders are still working out the details, according to The Associated Press.

Trump’s first impeachment trial, in which he was acquitted of charges of abuse of power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate now-President Joe Biden, lasted nearly three weeks.

But this is expected to be shorter, as the case is less complicated and senators already know many of the details, having been on Capitol Hill during the insurrection themselves.

And while Democrats want to make sure they have plenty of time to present their case, they don’t want to paralyze the Senate for long.

Until the trial is complete, the Senate cannot confirm Biden’s cabinet nominees and move forward with its legislative priorities, such as relief from the COVID-19 pandemic.
