Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
House impeachment managers and President Trump’s lawyers have concluded their opening arguments in the Senate. The impeachment trial moves into the question period for both sides on Jan. 29, 2020, when senators submit questions in writing to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. The chief justice read questions out loud, alternating between the majority and minority for up to eight hours. The Senate will reconvene Thursday afternoon, January 30, 2020, for the final day of written questions to House managers and President Trump’s defense team in his impeachment trial, setting the stage for a crucial vote on witnesses on Friday, in the video “Impeachment Trial Day 9:Last day of questioning comes ahead of pivotal vote on witnesses“, below:
Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives in December for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Impeachment does not mean that the president has been removed from office. In the next phase, the Senate must hold a trial to make that determination. A Senate impeachment trial has happened only two other times in American history and once in the modern era. At the center of the Democrats’ case is that Trump sought to withhold military assistance and an Oval Office meeting until Ukraine announced investigations into former vice president Joe Biden and his son.

Pres. Trump’s defense team follows familiar strategy of denial. Chuck Todd says, “This new White House defense appears to fit into a pattern with this president where the first response to an accusation is denial and then … the response eventually gets to ‘so what?’” In the video “President Donald Trump’s Defense Team Follows Familiar Strategy Of Denial, MSNBC“, below:
Whether the United States Constitution will be abused remains to be seen.
Whether this trial will be a fair trial remains to be seen.
Keep in mind that our 2020 election is not yet secured, so how this trial would fare is critical! For more on Foreign interference in the 2020 United States elections, please click HERE.
