"The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters", McCarthy said. He also doesn't mention impeachment.

Also left to be negotiated are the details of the trial, such as length and scope of the process, whether to subpoena documents and witnesses.

Donald Trump will not be present.

The incoming team is also focused on laying the groundwork for a smooth presidential transition that will ensure a continuous command and control across the homeland security and law enforcement components of the United States government, according to the statement.

But he said he was voting against impeachment because it would further divide the nation and the trial would not even begin before Mr Biden takes oath on Jan 20.

The US House of Representatives has just voted to impeach Trump for the second time, with the final tally at 232 in favour and 197 against. That's suggests a shorter proceeding.

Once two Senate contests are certified in Georgia and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is sworn in - giving her the tie breaking vote in a 50-50 Senate - Schumer will take over from McConnell as majority leader.

Trump was impeached by the House on Wednesday on a single charge of incitement to insurrection after the deadly Capitol siege last week by a pro-Trump mob. But impeachment supporters said Trump's attempt to derail Congress from certifying the election results spurred an act of domestic terrorism, making the president unfit for office. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers.

This statement of Biden came shortly after Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for the January 6 violence which witnessed deaths of five people. Frank Bowman III, a University of Missouri law professor and author of "A History of Impeachment for the Age of Trump", said it's his view the lower number of votes makes sense, but it's not insane to think that it might be challenged if things got to that point.

It marked the first time in the 231-year history of the United States that a president has been impeached twice in his term.

On the Senate side, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said privately he's through with Trump. Only one Republican, Mitt Romney of Utah, broke with the GOP.

A Senate conviction would require 17 Republicans to break ranks, an unlikely but not impossible outcome given alleged appetites to distance themselves from the sitting President.
