The President is expected to be acquitted on Wednesday.
The procedure of impeachment of the President of the United States Donald Trump ends on Wednesday. Almost everyone expects the President to be cleared of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
US senators will meet in the afternoon to deliver the final verdict as jurors in a two-week trial that was preceded by the House of Representatives approving two articles of impeachment against Trump.
To remove Trump from office, this decision must be supported by two-thirds of the 100 senators.
However, the Trump Republican Party has a 53-vote majority in the house, and none of the Republicans has publicly stated that they will vote against the President.
Similarly, none of the Democrats said they would break away from their party colleagues and vote to justify Trump.
The President did not mention impeachment in his state of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night.
However, he previously denounced the process as a” witch hunt,” claiming that he did not allow anything illegal.
The articles of impeachment accuse Trump of abusing authority and obstructing congressional investigations by banning administration officials from handing over documents and testifying to House committees.
Senate Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell, who was involved in developing a plan for a shortened trial that does not involve calling new witnesses and submitting new documents, said that Trump’s articles of impeachment “do not even come close to removing the President from office for the first time in American history.”
