Impeachment Trial: Closing Arguments

Closing arguments in the Senate trial of the impeachment of Donald Trump from the House managers and Trump lawyers begin at 11 AM ET. Although Trunp’s acquittal is all but certain, some Republican senators have started to acknowledge that Trump’s pressuring of Ukraine for political investigations that would benefit him politically was inappropriate, or even wrong. But most say his actions, even if improper, do not clear the high bar for ejecting a president from office. In the end of this, what matters is that Trump will go down in history as the third president to be impeached.
