Senators, and Congressmen, mostly democrats have been urging to impeach trump but an impeachment of the outgoing American President is unlikely to happen. 

However, the impeachment trials are unlikely to happen before Trump leaves office. According to the memo, the senate currently at recess will not resume before the 19th of January. So, the proceedings of impeachment can only start a day before Joe Biden's inauguration. 

"The Senate Impeachment Rules provide that at  1 pm the day after the Managers exhibit the articles before the Senate, the Senate must proceed to their consideration. The Senate trial would therefore begin after President Trump’s term has expired - either one hour after its expiration on 20 January, or twenty-five hours after its expiration on 21 January," the memo read.

It seems unlikely that the Impeachment trials take place before Trump leaves office.

“Impeaching President Donald Trump with 12 days remaining in his presidency would only serve to further divide the country,” said White House spokesman Judd Deere.
