(Feb. 4, 2020) — At approximately 9:00 AM EST on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he will be delivering remarks about the Senate’s impeachment trial for President Donald Trump at 9:30 AM.

At 9:30am, I will speak on the Senate floor about the president’s impeachment trial and tomorrow’s conclusion to this process. cs.pn/2vP6MCp,” McConnell wrote, including a link to where C-Span will broadcast the session.

“Senators will speak for up to 10 minutes each on the articles of impeachment against President Trump – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress,” C-Span’s heading of its coverage reads.

As The Post & Email reported, on Monday afternoon the U.S. Senate adjourned as a court of impeachment but remains open for members to speak their respective minds on the trial, which began on January 21.

On Friday, the “world’s greatest deliberative body” voted against calling additional witnesses and documents not already included in the US House of Representatives’ record of impeachment. On December 18, 2019, the House officially impeached Trump on two articles: “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.”

The Senate will vote at 4:00 p.m. Wednesday on acquitting or convicting the president.

    Because there is no “abuse of power” due to a mutual cooperation treaty to fight corruption between the USA and the country of Ukraine signed by President Clinton, there can be no “obstruction of Congress” charge.
