Democrats to deliver impeachment articles against Trump to Senate on historic day

The weeks-long trial in the Senate is expected to ultimately end in the president's acquittal.

The House's action sets up an historic clash between Congress and the president that now will be fought out in the quasi-judicial and highly political venue of the Senate, where Trump's Republican allies hold a 53-47 majority. There waits more history, pageantry and tradition of a type that's only been seen on television once, and not since the 1999 trial of President Bill Clinton. "And that means listening to the case, not dismissing it", he said. Not only did Trump ultimately release the funds for Ukraine that had been frozen for a time a year ago, Ukraine's president did not agree to conduct the investigation that Trump wanted into the Bidens.

Pelosi met with the Democratic caucus Tuesday morning to decide a path forward regarding impeachment after holding the articles hostage in the House for a month. I just disagree with this. Schiff will serve as lead manager, after he took the lead role in the House's impeachment inquiry. They are considering whether to allow a vote on such a motion to dismiss and another to subpoena testimony from new witnesses. Lamar Alexander told ABC News Tuesday.

There are two elements to this question, each of which is important. "The evidence is overwhelming", he said.

The White House is steeling itself for a trial that could present damaging evidence against the United States leader on national television.

The managers will return to the House until the Senate admits them.

Alexander also said he's staying open-minded when it comes to witnesses.

His sentiments echo comments from GOP Sens.

Senator Susan Collins of ME is leading an effort among some Republicans, including Mitt Romney of Utah and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to ensure the ground rules include the possibility of calling new witnesses. "If the existing case is weak, House Democrats should not have impeached in the first place". He also told us that he expects the trial will be "tedious". McConnell said this week the trial will likely start on January 21.

In a previous statement , the commission said it received a report from authorities in Thailand about a sick Chinese woman. The prospect of human-to-human transmission of a new virus has put Thai authorities on alert.

"Well, it's a hard topic for him".

Roberts will then swear in the 100 senators who will act as the jury and be required to remain in the body for all the time the trial is underway.

It looks like by tonight or tomorrow, we will know exactly when the U.S. Senate will begin its proceedings.

A mounting number of senators say they want to ensure the ground rules include the possibility of calling new witnesses. Sen.

Between the magnetometer and the constant need for journalists to leave and reenter the chamber in order to file stories, Wire wrote on Twitter that "the Senate trial will have a soundtrack of "beep, beep, beep" as 90+ reporters walk in and out all day". Lindsey Graham, traveled with him on Monday to the college football national championship game and said the two discussed impeachment. I really don't think that's true.

"I just think that's not practical. That's where you get that extra nugget of information", Wire said in an interview with The Associated Press.

In terms of the length of the trial, Graham said he thinks it will be over by the State of the Union, which is set for February 4.

The trial will determine whether to convict Trump and remove him from office. When they get to this point on the rules and they have to start debating what rules are going to govern the procedures, even if it looks nearly identical to what it looked like twenty years ago, I think that's the point where people will be surprised at how it looks.
