Members of the US Senate were sworn in last night to serve as jurors at the historic impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who will preside over the trial, administered the oath to the senators.

Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate majority leader, then adjourned the proceedings and said the trial would resume on upcoming Tuesday.

Earlier, Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who will serve as lead prosecutor for the trial, read out the two articles of impeachment accusing Trump of high crimes and
misdemeanors. Impeachment rules require a two-thirds Senate majority to convict and remove the President. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump predicted that his impeachment trial in the US Senate will not take long. He once again dismissed the abuse of power charges against him as hoax.
