The Settlement Process Against US President Donald Trump Launched in Senate
The settlement process against US President Donald Trump in the Senate was formally launched today. The Democratic parliamentarian Adam Schiff, who acts as chief prosecutor, then presented the charges against Trump.
The accusations have been approved by the House of Representatives, where the Democrats are in the majority.
They accuse Trump of abuse of power and opposing Congress. He is said to have asked Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.
The White House then refused to make witnesses and documents available to parliamentarians who investigated.
Later in the Senate, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. expected. Then the senators, who serve as jury members, will take an oath in which they promise to act “impartially”.
A two-thirds majority is required for a conviction. Observers expect that Trump will be acquitted. His Republican Party holds the most senate seats.
