The U.S. Senate postponed consideration of impeachment of former U.S. President Donald Trump until February 9. This is reported by RIA Novosti.
At the same time, Senator Rand Paul’s demand to recognize the impeachment process as illegal was rejected – 55 people voted for it. Another 45 senators spoke out against it.
Earlier, U.S. senators were sworn in to Trump’s impeachment process. Donald Trump has already begun negotiations with lawyers to develop a defense strategy for the upcoming hearings.
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 the politician. He became the first U.S. president to be impeached for the second time, especially after he resigned. Democrats motivated their decision to impeach Trump by the fact that after the process is over, he will not be able to run for president.
