President Trump’s impeachment trial moves Wednesday to its next phase: written questions from senators.
For up to 16 hours spread over two days, senators from both parties will submit questions to House managers prosecuting the case as well as Trump’s defense lawyers; U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts, who is presiding over the trial, will read the questions aloud on the floor of the chamber.
This step in the proceedings comes a day after the president’s legal team rested in its defense of Trump. Democratic House managers made their case last week on why the president should be removed from office. Trump was impeached last month on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Start time is 1PM. Today should be a lot more interesting the droning of the last two weeks.
