“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.
