The US Senate will start impeachment trial of President Donald Trump next week.

Talking to newsmen in Washington, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said the House of Representatives will vote on Wednesday to send the impeachment charges to the Senate kicking off a trial that could last through early February.

He said the House will  also name the House lawmakers who will prosecute the case against Donald Trump.

Donald Trump will become only the third president in US history to go on trial, risking his removal from office.
