Former President Trump’s second impeachment trial is set to begin in the Senate on Tuesday, February 9th. Trump’s lawyers called the trial a “political drama” and said the US Senate had no jurisdiction over such a trial. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Opposition Leader Mitch McConnell have reached an agreement on the issue. However, Donald Trump has already stated that he will not appear in person at the impeachment court. Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “I, the Republican leader in the Senate, the House impeachment manager and the former president’s lawyer have reached an agreement on the judicial process.” In doing so, all parties agreed on a structure that would ensure a fair and impartial trial in the Senate. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was “satisfied” that Leader Schumer and I had reached an agreement. On Monday, February 8, Trump’s lawyers submitted a 75-page written statement to the impeachment court. It argues that the trial against Trump is unconstitutional and ineffective.
Following the remarks, impeachment managers in the Senate rejected all of Trump’s lawyers’ claims in a five-page counter-statement. The response said Trump’s allegations of electoral fraud were nowhere to be found. Mentioning that there is a lot of evidence of the violence that took place in Trump’s behavior on January 8, they said that Trump has no excuse to justify his actions. Former President Donald Trump is trying to shirk responsibility, according to a letter from prosecution managers.
Politico conducted the latest survey on this. According to a poll released on Monday, February 8, 54 percent of registered voters in the United States believe that Trump should be impeached for the January 8 incident. According to the same poll, 56 percent of people think Donald Trump should be disqualified from taking charge of any future federal government.
Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and one of the impeachment managers, said 100 witnesses to the January 8 incident would be in court as soon as the trial begins. He said there may be no need to call any witnesses from outside for this reason. The impeachment court will present video footage of Capitol Hill on Jan. 8, along with video footage of Democrats claiming that former President Donald Trump’s post-election fraud was rigged. Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have had their offices ransacked, with five people killed in the January 8 incident on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers have had to take refuge under the table to escape the insane supporters of Donald Trump. Although the impeachment sentence against Donald Trump has not been carried out, political efforts are underway to prevent him from running in future elections by passing a resolution in the Senate. The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that a person shall be ineligible to hold any responsible position in the U.S. Government if he is found guilty of taking up arms against the government or committing acts of violence against the government.
In this case, by imposing the 14th amendment of the constitution, measures may be taken to prevent Donald Trump from running in the 2024 elections. Democrats are expected to garner increased support from Republicans on the issue.
The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a Capitol Hill rally. Donald Trump’s speech did not cause any intrusion, looting or assault on Capitol Hill, the lawyers said in their statement. Former President Donald Trump has spoken out about election fraud, which is protected by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution, according to lawyers.
Former President Donald Trump is trying to shirk responsibility, according to a letter from prosecution managers. It has been said that another full statement will be submitted by the impeachment managers by 10 am on Tuesday after the statement given by the lawyers of Donald Trump.
Senator Charles Schumer said a vote on the rules of procedure of the impeachment court would begin Tuesday. This will be followed by a four-hour debate on the constitutional acceptability of the trial and a vote by senators.
Senator Charles Schumer said there was a fair agreement between the two sides on the structure of the court. As a result, he thinks, the impeachment trial will be able to reach its goal by gaining acceptance with the revelation of the truth. He said the prosecution managers would start presenting their cases on Wednesday afternoon. After the 16-hour presentation, Trump’s lawyers will have the same time to eat it. Among the 100 U.S. senators sworn in for the judiciary will have the opportunity to ask questions of both sides and find out the answers. At the request of the prosecution managers, the court has been given the opportunity to present a brief debate and vote. Former President Donald Trump’s lawyer David Schwein is Jewish. At his request, the proceedings of the impeachment court will be adjourned from Friday evening to Saturday to observe the religious rites “Sabet”.
The impeachment against Donald Trump requires the support of two-thirds of the US Senate. To get that support, 18 Republican senators will have to vote against Trump. So far, only five Republican senators have been seen taking a stand against Donald Trump. However, when the impeachment motion was passed in Congress, 10 Republicans voted in favor of the motion.
Jonathan Tarley, a law professor at George Washington University, says Trump’s impeachment court will spread a lot of heat. He thinks the Democrats and Republicans will take their own criticism to court.
