Trump impeachment trial to wind down after Senate blocks calling witnesses

Trump impeachment trial to resume for final arguments

Before then, senators will hear lawyers' closing arguments and have two days for discussion.

The Senate will have a final vote on whether to convict or acquit the president on Wednesday evening.

I thought they might look for errors in the House Management case. She said Democrats impeaching Trump for Ukraine-related allegations have lowered the bar for what is considered a chargeable offense. Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said he planned to involve Joe Biden in congressional oversight over possible corruption in Ukraine.

"What messages does that send?"

Democrats had been eager to hear from Bolton following reports that, in a forthcoming book, he says Mr. Trump told him military aid to Ukraine was tied to Kiev's investigating former vice president Biden. As the election of 2020 got closer, this view was expressed even more strongly by many who reminded us how soon the voters would have their chance to determine Donald Trump's fate. "Meanwhile, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., composed at a Moderate post that only" because activities fulfill a standard of impeachment doesn't mean it's in the best interest of the nation to remove a President from office".

The two articles of impeachment that brought Trump to trial in the Senate stem from the president's decision to withhold military aid to Ukraine.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Trump ally, said House prosecutors - known as "managers" - had already presented enough evidence to make their case and there was no need for further witnesses.

While the court of impeachment is adjourned Monday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon, the Senate will be in regular session and senators will have the opportunity during that time to deliver floor statements explaining their positions on the two charges against Trump.

There is still a lot of drama before the vote on Wednesday.

Democrats watched Bolton's documented claim of firsthand understanding of Trump's goals because of missing link in their own argument.

The outcome appeared sealed after the Republican majority narrowly voted to deny a motion allowing the testimony of witnesses and introduction of new evidence into the trial.

"The House demonstrated the corrupt scheme they billed in the articles of impeachment".

In fact, the impeachment process may have even boosted Trump's numbers. Laura Cooper's transcript is here; Christopher Anderson's is here and Catherine Croft's is here.
