The fifth day of the ongoing impeachment hearing against Trump, who was accused in the Senate on Jan. 6 of an attack by supporters on the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., that killed five people. Former US President Donald Trump continues.
Democrats wanted to summon Republican Congressman Jaime Herrera Beutler as a witness in the Senate General Assembly at 10 a.m. local time, and Democrats and five Republicans voted in favor, with 45 to 55 senators voting in favor. Thus, it was decided to call witnesses at Trump’s impeachment hearing in the Senate. However, Trump’s lawyers and Democrats agreed to add testimony to the evidence and agreed not to call witnesses.
Trump’s decision to hear witnesses in the impeachment court eliminates the possibility of an extension of the trial, and the trial continues with the final speeches of the parties.
The ongoing impeachment hearing in the Senate General Assembly is expected to end today if the final vote on whether Trump is guilty ends.
