Democrats and Republicans Prepare for Trump's Second Impeachment Trial

( – America continues to battle its worst health care crisis since the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic and the gravest economic collapse since the Great Depression of the 1930s. In the midst of this turmoil, Congressional Democrats have prioritized their ongoing efforts to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency and legacy of accomplishments.

Trump’s impeachment trial is set to begin on Monday, February 8. With Democrats in charge of the Senate this go-around, there’s no telling how long this charade might last.

What Trump Is Accused Of

The Democratic-led House of Representatives voted to approve one article of impeachment against Donald Trump on January 13, 2021, days before he was scheduled to leave office.

The lone impeachment count states that Trump engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States. More specifically, the article accuses him of “willfully inciting violence” during the count of electoral votes on January 6.

What to Expect From the Trial

Senators have already been sworn in ahead of the trial and vowed to dole out “impartial justice.” A team of House impeachment managers will have an opportunity to make their case.

Donald Trump’s legal team will have time to mount a defense and rebut Democrats’ arguments. After that process, Senators will be asked to vote whether they think Democrats proved their case against Donald Trump or not.

Will Republicans Vote to Impeach?

Republicans are not expected to convict Donald Trump. In fact, 45 Republican senators voted to dismiss impeachment on Constitutional grounds on January 26. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced the motion claiming it was unconstitutional to try Donald Trump after leaving office.

Democrats need a total of 17 Republicans to join them in voting to convict Trump, and that’s provided none of the Democrats defect and join Senate Republicans to vote nay.

Once more, Democrats want to waste valuable time and resources attempting to defame Donald Trump, one of America’s greatest presidents.
