Former President Donald Trump is expected to meet with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Thursday ahead of his Senate impeachment trial, Fox News has learned.

Fast Facts

The meeting will occur in South Florida just weeks after the Jan. 6 Capitol riots that many have blamed on Trump and over which he was impeached by the House a week later for “incitement of insurrection.” 

In the aftermath, McCarthy opposed impeaching Trump but was open to a censure resolution. But McCarthy more recently expressed concerns about GOP conference chairwoman Liz Cheney’s vote to impeach Trump.

Trump’s trial, the first for a former president, is set to start the week of Feb. 8.
