Trump impeachment closing arguments begin

Trump Headed For Speedy Acquittal After Senate Votes Against Additional Witnesses

Obama's actions are more incontestable than what Trump did

House managers and the president's legal team are each delivering their closing arguments in the impeachment trial on February 3 before senators began to weigh in with debate on whether to remove Trump from office.

Alas, none of the Senate's 53 Republicans have shown any inkling that they will vote to convict Trump of leaning on Ukraine for political dirt, or of obstructing Congress in its investigation of that pressure campaign. Trump has denied wrongdoing and called the impeachment effort an attempted coup by Democrats.

In his closing argument before the Senate, Crow argued that Trump must be impeached because he will never stop putting his own interests before the interests of the country.

Trump has become just the third president in USA history to be impeached, but he's expected to be acquitted in his Senate trial on Wednesday.

Four contenders for the Democratic nomination - Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar and Michael Bennet - were required to be present at the impeachment trial.

Trump is only the third US president to be impeached.

"On Wednesday night, the people will be heard in protests across the nation", said Karen Hobert Flynn, president of Common Cause. "That is neither freedom nor is it justice".

"If the Senate chooses to acquit under these circumstances, then America is in the wilderness", Rep. Hakeem Jeffries said Monday.

Trump's acquittal is all but guaranteed, with at least 20 Republicans needed to reach 67 votes needed for removal from office. Senate Republicans, led by Mitch McConnell, have made a bet.

"Impeachment is an extraordinary remedy - a tool only to be used in rare instances of grave misconduct", Crow said.

It is "simply preposterous", to claim the president can do no wrong, he said, noting that "no one is above the law".

"Today we urge you, in the face of overwhelming evidence of the president's guilt, and knowing that if left in office he will continue to seek foreign interference in the next election, vote to convict on both articles of impeachment and remove from office Donald J. Trump, the 45th president of the United States", Schiff said. Biden is a leading contender for the Democratic nomination to challenge Trump. The voters should make the ultimate decision about Donald Trump, they said, not the Senate.

The actions are being organized by a diverse coalition of progressive groups-including By the People, Common Cause, Greenpeace, Indivisible, NextGen America, Public Citizen, Sierra Club, Stand Up America, Stand Up Republic, Women's March, and others-and are meant to make sure that Republicans understand their votes to acquit will not be forgotten come national elections later this year.

The key 51-49 vote against calling witnesses in the trial came Friday over Democratic objections.

The Senate is to vote at 4:00 pm (2100 GMT) on Wednesday on the charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and the Republican president is all but certain of being acquitted. Several Republican senators have called Trump's actions wrong and inappropriate but not impeachable.

"What you decide on these articles will have lasting implications for the future of the presidency, not only for this president, but for all future presidents", he said.
