The 5th day of the impeachment trial in the Senate of Trump, who was accused by the Democrats for his role in the Congressional raid and was the first president to be tried with a second impeachment request, continues with surprise developments.
At the Senate General Assembly, which met at 10 a.m. local time, the Democratic attorneys declared that they wanted to summon Republican Congressman Jaime Herrera Beutler as a witness and this request was accepted in the voting.
Flash verdict in Trump’s impeachment trial
However, according to the agreement between Trump’s lawyers and Democratic prosecutor attorneys, it was decided to include the testimony in question among the evidence and not to call any witnesses. Thus, the possibility of prolonging Trump’s impeachment trial with new witnesses was eliminated.
In the Senate General Assembly, where the parties are still making their closing presentations, it is stated that the final vote on whether Trump is guilty or not can be made today.
Democratic attorneys’ representatives stated in the morning session that Republican MP Beutler, who spoke on the phone with Minority Leader of the Republican House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy on January 6, should be heard as a witness. Trump’s lawyers, on the other hand, emphasized that they did not accept the said step, which emerged at the last minute.
Later, in the voting on the request to call witnesses, 55 against 45 senators voted to “listen to witnesses”.
TRUMP’S LAUNDERING IS ALMOSTLY VIEWED
For Trump to be found guilty in the 100-seat Senate, at least 2 out of 3 (67 senators) must vote against Trump.
In the current Senate arithmetic, where Democrats and Republicans have 50 seats each, it is almost certain that Trump was acquitted by the votes of the Republican senators.
The majority of Republicans who made statements about the trial so far gave the message that they would vote in favor of Trump.
The impeachment clause, in which Trump was accused of “incitement to rebellion”, was accepted in the House of Representatives on January 14 regarding the raid on Congress, in which 5 people, 1 of whom were police, died.
