**Background**

This is a follow-up question to:
What (classes of) Banach spaces are known to have Schauder basis?

In the previous question, I asked about what spaces are known to have Schauder basis. It seems that not a lot of positive results are available in that area. So I am restricting my question to one of the spaces that is in particular relevant to my research:

Does $C_p$, the Banach space of all Schatten-p operators on a separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space, have property $\pi$? Or does it have a (Schauder) basis?

Thank you!
