House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will deliver the article of impeachment against former President Donald Trump to the U.S. Senate on Monday, triggering the second-ever impeachment trial for the former commander-in-chief for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot that left five people dead.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) made the announcement on the Senate floor Friday, saying that Pelosi had told him the single impeachment article for “incitement of insurrection” will be sent to the upper congressional chamber Monday.

“It will be a full trial; it will be a fair trial,” Schumer said.

The new Senate majority leader did not provide any details as to how the trial will be conducted. Meanwhile, the leaders of both political parties have yet to finalize a schedule for the process.

Last week, the House of Representatives voted 232-197 to impeach then-President Trump, alleging that he incited a violent mob of his most extreme supporters that stormed the U.S. Capitol on the same day Congress was tallying the states’ Electoral College votes and certifying Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.

All House Democrats and 10 Republicans approved the single article.

Trump is now the only president in U.S. history to be impeached more than once, and he will become the first to receive a Senate impeachment trial after leaving office.

In order to convict Trump, 17 Republican senators will need join forces with all 50 Senate Democrats to reach a two-thirds supermajority.
