Transcript for Article of impeachment against Trump to be delivered Monday
through a terrifying year. We'll move on now to capitol hill and that major step in the impeachment trial of former president trump, within hours the house will send the article of impeachment to the senate setting the process in motion. Rachel Scott has all details. Reporter: This morning, with just hours until the house sends the article of impeachment to the senate, Democrats outraged over new allegations that former president Donald Trump considered using his own justice department to try and overturn the election. As if it's not enough that he sent an angry mob down the mall to invade the capitol. Reporter: The Wall Street journal reports that trump wanted the department to sue states directly in the supreme court and when that plan failed, "The New York Times" said he allegedly plotted to remove his acting attorney general and replace him with a trump loyalist. It goes to his motive to stay in power, his intent to do that, to call his supporters, to radicalize his supporters. Reporter: The justice department hasn't commented on those reports and trump hasn't addressed these specific allegations against him. The former president is already charged with incitement of insurrection after he urged his supporters to March to the capitol. That impeachment trial now scheduled to start the week of February 8th. We'll move forward with the trial, it will be fair, but it will move at a relatively fast pace. Reporter: Democrats would need at least 17 Republicans to vote to convict trump, but a growing number are now blasting the trial before it even begins. I think the trial is stupid. I think it's counterproductive. Reporter: Tomorrow, senators will be sworn in as jurors, but both sides have agreed to delay that trial for two weeks, giving Democrats a chance to push through Joe Biden's cabinet picks and trump more time to prepare his defense, George. Yes it's a complication for Biden's agenda.
