Prosecutors have completed their case at the impeachment trial of former US President Donald Trump. The politician is charged with the article “Incitement to Rebellion”. The prosecution argued for two days, substantiating the theory that Trump was instigating the riot in the run-up to the January 6th Capitol riots.
Chief Prosecutor, Rep. Jamie Ruskin is convinced that if Trump is not impeached now, he may try again to call for violence, writes RIA Novosti… The impeachment of the former owner of the White House is proposed to be passed retroactively in order to deprive him of the opportunity to run for president in the future.
The defense will now have about 16 hours, split over at least two days, to speak out against the charges. Further questions of senators, possible interrogation of witnesses and voting are planned.
We will remind, this week the US Senate recognized the constitutional process of impeachment of Donald Trump. This is evidenced by the voting results. There were 56 senators in favor, including six Republicans. At the same time, 44 Republican senators voted against, making it clear that they intend to acquit their party member. In order to impeach the ex-president, 67 votes in the Senate are needed. Trump himself has no plans to speak at the trial.
