The US Senate begins a historic process of President Donald Trump's motion to swear to lawmakers that he will make a neutral decision on whether or not to hold the 45th president of the United States.
This is the third time in American history that the Senate Chamber has been turned into a court of law, headed by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and members sworn in by the Senate.
French news agency AFP reports that when John Roberts asked senators whether they would do impartial justice in accordance with the US Constitution, he raised his right hand to 99 members and replied, "We will."
Earlier, two articles were read on the Senate floor on the basis of which Donald Trump is being prosecuted. Those were two allegations of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Adam Schiff, the head of the House's intelligence committee, is serving as the central prosecutor at the trial, who read allegations of serious crimes and misconduct against Donald Trump.
It should be noted that the US president has been mocking the impeachment process for several months and called the start of the trial another hoax.
Talking to reporters in the Oval Office, the US president said, "I think it has to happen very fast, it is completely biased, I am facing the deception that the Democrats have given so that they can try and win the election. Win. '
It should be noted that the U.S. House of Representatives, comprised of a majority of Democrats members, voted for Donald Trump's December 18 election.
However, the Senate, which has a majority of Republican members, is likely to win the US president because it requires a two-thirds majority to remove the president from office.
The Senate adjourned until Tuesday, after taking oath in the Senate for the proceedings.
Republican Senator James Anhov, who was absent from the meeting due to a medical emergency in the family, said he would take oath on Tuesday without delay.
It should be noted that the US president has been accused of misusing powers in connection with a probe against Biden, withholding military aid from Ukraine and a meeting with the country's president in the White House.
The Neutral Government Accountability Agency said in its report that the White House violated federal law by stopping Congress-approved aid.
The second charge against the US president is to provide witnesses and documents to the investigators in the House despite the summons of Congress.
