Senators close-out question phase in Impeachment trial

1 min read

Senators concluded the second round of questions in President Trump’s Senate Impeachment trial on Thursday, Jan. 30. The trial will resume today at 1 p.m. with a decision on whether to call additional witnesses and a possible vote on the two articles of impeachment.

Senators continued their second day of questions towards President Trump’s legal team and house prosecutors, deliberating for 16 hours yesterday.

In this second day of inquiries, each side looked to appeal to an ever shrinking group of undecided Republicans who can either concede or remain with their party majority.

If the undecided Republicans stand with the rest of their party they could blockade the additional witnesses and documents.

This means that the ten day trial could come to a close tomorrow, ending the 2020 hearings and deciding on the articles of impeachment.

This is a developing story.
