Senate votes to allow witnesses in Trump impeachment trial

House impeachment managers, early Saturday, in an unexpected move asked the Senate to call witnesses in former President Trump’s second impeachment trial rather than moving to a final vote. The Senate voted 55-45 to agree to call witnesses, with five Republicans joining with Democrats to hear from witnesses and extend the trial. Senate leaders are now negotiating over the next steps in the trial.

Just a show trial. It's a good thing we're focusing on this rather than legislation to help the average American or idk something else more important like the over 40 EOs Biden has signed

Obviously all their effort is bent on keeping Trump in the limelight as long as possible in order to distract from other issues.

Silver lining to this mockery of a sham: as long as these doofuses are doing this, they can't pass any other even more useless stuff. Destroying the small businesses and people waiting for any help from the federal government appears to be an acceptable price to the Democrats.

Actually, they didn’t vote to allow witnesses, they voted to open the discussion on whether or not to allow witnesses. Pls keep facts on reporting correct.

There used to be ten, now there's five. Demacrats are fighting a losing battle. No winners here, all losers. Especially the American people.

I'm surprised by this but I'm not expecting it will be enough to get the Republicans to actually vote against Trump.

So can Trump call witnesses now too? Or is it only the ones the Democrats have chosen who can speak? The Democrats whole case relies in convincing people Trump was lying about election fraud and so had no reason to protest. Trump can use this whole impeachment to bring all the evidence, that the courts refuse to hear the police refuse to investigate and the media refuse to report, and blast it loud and clear for the world to hear.

This trial is a sham and what happens if they don't have any evidence of any crime Nothing. They'll just rig the election just like they did.

To all those thinking that the senate can't impeach and legislate at the same time, aren't you upset by republicans holding up the process? They can introduce legislation themselves. They just have to offer something that can get passed. It's not difficult, they just have to write a bill that abandons those big donors that have already by they way been abandoning the republicans anyway. They can also speed up the impeachment by offering unity with the democrats against the man who has made a concerted effort to destroy their party.

For all the fat lot of good it did. Repubs just ignore them like they did of that video of a cop getting crushed by trump followers who kept saying blue lives matter.

This was about the phone call that trump made to a senator in the building where he said "i guess these people are more upset about the election than you are." The decision ended when both sides chose to allow the call into the evidence.
