Senator Leahy who will preside over Trump trial hospitalized

United States Senator Patrick Leahy, selected to preside over former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, was taken to a hospital, his spokesman David Carle revealed.

"This evening, Senator Leahy was in his Capitol office and was not feeling well," said Carle. He went on to explain that the Capitol's attending physician examined the senator and recommended he be taken to a hospital for observation "out of an abundance of caution."

Leahy was sworn in as president pro tempore of the United States Senate after President Joe Biden took office, making him third in the line of succession to the presidency, behind Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
