WASHINGTON, Jan 13 (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday called on Senate leadership to work on other business while dealing with their responsibilities on impeachment after a House of Representatives vote that made Donald Trump the first U.S. president ever to be impeached twice.

"I hope that the Senate leadership will find a way to deal with their Constitutional responsibilities on impeachment while also working on the other urgent business of this nation," Biden said in a statement. (Reporting by Daphne Psaledakis and Eric Beech Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
