Democrats in Oregon's congressional delegation are calling on the U.S Senate to immediately hold a trial to throw President Donald Trump out of office after he was impeached in U.S. House for the second time on Wednesday.

Republican U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he will not reconvene the U.S. Senate until Jan. 19, which is one day before Trump will leave office after Joe Biden is scheduled to be sworn in as the next president.
