The GOP defeated a Democratic attempt to call witnesses at the impeachment trial and Trump’s acquittal is expected — but not until next week.
President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial entered a new phase on Wednesday as senators submitted questions to Democratic House managers prosecuting the case and Trump’s legal team, which is in charge of the president’s defense.
In his forthcoming book, John Bolton says Trump directly tied holding up nearly $400 million in U.S. military aid to Ukraine’s investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
As House managers begin to make their case for Trump’s removal, Senate Democrats appeal to American voters to pressure their GOP colleagues to allow witnesses and documents that have been blocked from release by the White House..
Democrats slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s rules for conducting the trial, calling them corrupt and “rigged.”
An hour after senators were sworn in as jurors in President Trump’s impeachment trial, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he will likely force votes on witnesses.
