Donald Trump's trial at the senate will start next week after being impeached shortly before he left the White House.
The Ex-US leader was charged with supporting violence and encouraging insurrection' using his comment ahead of the council vote. Mr. Donald Trump has said he isn't ready to testify because there is nothing to testify about. He said everyone should be held responsible for their actions and that the Capitol riots shouldn't be hinged on him.
About 4 people were reportedly killed in the riot with hundreds which include security officials injured. Mr. Donald Trump remains the only US leader to be impeached twice, however, he has insisted his impeachment is based on sentiments and not facts. The ex-president legal team has recently said that there are security documents that proved that the riot wasn't planned but was a spontaneous affair.
Lawyers insist senate trial is unlawful and sentimental
