President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial could begin on Inauguration Day — but he’s not the only one who may face impeachment drama that week.
Just as Democrat Joe Biden takes the oath of office and begins his tenure in the White House, political allies of Trump have a plan to flip the impeachment on Biden.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-G.A., said she plans to file Articles of Impeachment on Biden the day after his presidency begins.
“I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a President of the United States who is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” Greene told Newsmax’s Greg Kelly.
“So on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden,” she said.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
It’s time to take a stand.

As for Trump’s upcoming Senate trial, the timing depends heavily on when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decides to transmit the article of impeachment to the Senate.
Democrats — hoping to avoid interrupting Biden’s first 100 days in office — have suggested holding back until the new president has a chance to get his administration going.

Greene aims to disrupt this so-called “honeymoon period” of Biden’s new administration, in part as retaliation for Trump’s impeachment.
Trump was officially impeached Wednesday by the House over the deadly Capitol siege, the only president in U.S. history twice impeached. A mob stormed the Capitol building after a “Stop the Steal” rally on the Capitol Mall.
The attack has left the nation’s capital, and other major cities, under high security amid threats of more violence around the inauguration.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is open to considering impeachment. He has reportedly told associates he is done with Trump, but he has not signaled if he would vote to convict the 45th president.
The Republican leader holds great sway in his party even though convening the trial will be among his last acts as majority leader. Two new senators from Georgia, both Democrats, are to be sworn into office leaving the chamber divided 50-50. That tips the majority to the Democrats once Kamala Harris takes office, as the vice president is a tie-breaker.
No president has ever been convicted in the Senate, and it would take a two-thirds vote against Trump, an extremely tall hurdle. But it’s not out of the realm of possibility, especially as corporations and wealthy political donors distance themselves from Trump and the Republicans who stood by his attempt to overturn the election.

At least four establishment Republican senators have publicly expressed anger over Trump’s actions, and others have reportedly said so privately.
Under Senate procedure, the trial is to start soon after the House delivers the article of impeachment. That could mean starting at 1 p.m. on Inauguration Day. The ceremony at the Capitol starts at noon.
The impeachment resolution is intended to prevent Trump from ever running again.
