WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Sunday that former President Donald Trump’s approaching second impeachment trial in the Senate will be fair but move at a relatively fast pace.

“It will be a fair trial but it will move relatively quickly,” Schumer, a Democrat, told a news conference in New York. He said it should not take up too much time because “we have so much else to do.”
