Senators Vote To Extend Impeachment Trial

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The Senate voted Saturday to allow witnesses in former President Trump’s second impeachment trial, a stunning development that could extend the proceedings.

House Democrats prosecuting the case called for a single immediate witness to testify: Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), who has hammered Trump for his actions after the Capitol attack on Jan. 6.

The move came after the nine impeachment managers had spent the previous two days meticulously detailing their allegations against Trump and appeared ready to rest the case, setting up a potential Saturday vote on Trump’s fate in the Senate.

But news reports emerging Friday night raised new questions about precisely when Trump knew the Capitol breach had occurred and whether he knew that his own vice president, Mike Pence, was being targeted by the mob.
