U.S. President Joe Biden doubted that the impeachment process against former leader Donald Trump will be successful.
The American leader believes that the impeachment will not get the necessary Republican votes in the Senate and will not take place. Biden acknowledged that the process will affect the consideration of his cabinet nominees in the Senate, but noted that it would be worse if the impeachment process did not take place.
As the network points out, the president said the outcome of the process would have been different if Trump had to serve another six months in office.
It also became known that Trump played golf the day before, on January 25. He is ready for the proceedings and is determined that it will go quickly.
Earlier, the Associated Press reported that more and more Republicans oppose a trial on the impeachment of former U.S. President Donald Trump. An impeachment resolution requires the votes of two-thirds of the members of the upper house of Congress, that is, 67 senators out of 100. To do so, 17 single-party senators must vote against Trump. However, according to the agency, there are significantly fewer supporters of impeachment among Republican senators at the moment.
On January 14, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump in the wake of the recent unrest in Washington. The vote was the second attempt to impeach Trump.
Democrats motivated the decision to impeach Trump by, among other things, the fact that he would not be able to run for president once the process is over. The attempt to remove the leader of the state from office after the end of his presidential term is the first time in the United States. It was reported that the impeachment trial of former U.S. President Donald Trump in the U.S. Senate will begin on February 8.
