Trump's final arguments point to voters, history
WASHINGTON: Final arguments in the president Donald Trump The trial takes place on Monday for both history and any effort to influence the votes, a last chance to influence public opinion and set the record before his expected acquittal in the Senate led by Republicans.
Senators acknowledge that Democratic House managers have essentially demonstrated their case, that Trump abused power and obstructed Congress, by taking advantage of US military aid. UU. Joe biden to thwart the 2020 elections.
But the key Republicans have decided that the president's actions towards Ukraine do not reach the level of impeccable offenses that justify the dramatic agitation of the sentence and the dismissal of office. His acquittal on Wednesday's vote is almost assured.
All that remains, since the Senate opened for four hours of final arguments, is that the Americans decide what they think when the third presidential political trial in the nation's history begins to close. Democrats argue right issues, while the allies of the Trump Republican Party argue that it is time to end the partisan process.
House managers opened with a plea from Rep. Jason Crow, a Colorado Democrat, a freshman, who told the camera: We can't and shouldn't leave our common sense at the door.
The former Army Ranger invoked the founding fathers and even from the Nixon era political trial procedures to sing: In the United States, no one is above the law, even those elected president of the U.S . I would say — especially those elected president of the U.S ."
Senate procedures are set against broad political support, as voters in Iowa on Monday elect presidential Democratic primary candidates in early voting and Trump is ready on Tuesday to deliver his speech on the State of the Union in his own return from victory to Congress.
