Washington/Sputnik: Former US President Donald Trump's impeachment trial will begin the week of Febr 8, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said during remarks on the floor.

Trump was impeached by the House last week for allegedly inciting his supporters to storm Capitol Hill on Jan 6 to prevent Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's election victory.

Trump has denied the charges and said his remarks were "totally appropriate."

"[Impeachment] presentations by the parties will commence the week of February the 8th," Schumer said Friday.
