No One Knows When Trump Will Be Tried In The Senate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are locked in a procedural fight over the format of President Trump's impeachment trial.

The Senate was expected to begin the trial in January, but cannot do so until they have officially received the articles of impeachment from the House.

After some Democrats expressed concerns that Senate Republicans would not conduct the trial in good faith, Pelosi has held off on transmitting the articles as senators negotiate the trial's format.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, Congressional correspondent Susan Davis, senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro, and senior political editor and correspondent Ron Elving.
