    Donald Trump no longer will be president as of noon on January 20, 2021, when Joe Biden is sworn in. At some point after that, possibly just hours, the Senate under control of Democrats will initiate an impeachment trial of the then-former president. As detailed in a prior post, there is no constitutional basis for the Senate trying a former president, Impeachment 2.0 – No, the Senate cannot convict Trump after he leaves office. But there is one question about a trial I had not thought about, and was raised in a column by Prof. Jonathan Turley.

    The Senate on Friday rejected a measure to call witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial after Republicans argued new testimony is unnecessary, ensuring the trial will be the first in U.S. history without witnesses. 

    Prior to the votes, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., said that he would not partake in breaking ties.“I think it would be inappropriate for me, an unelected official from a different branch of government to assert the power to change that result so that the motion would succeed,” Roberts said.

    Senate leaders struck an agreement to hold the final vote to acquit Trump on the two articles of impeachment at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, following a debate throughout the day on Friday about how to bring the trial to a close. The impeachment trial will resume on Monday.

    The Senate is now expected to vote to acquit President Donald Trump, one day after the president delivers his State of the Union address to Congress. 

    Closing arguments will begin Monday morning, under a resolution adopted by the chamber. Senators plan to vote Wednesday on the two impeachment charges against Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

    A group of Republican senators reportedly met Thursday with White House counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as senior presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway, and Jared Kushner, son-in-law of US President Donald Trump, to discuss a strategy regarding the ongoing impeachment probe against the president launched earlier by Democrats in the House.

    Senior Trump administration officials and Senate Republicans agree that a full trial should be conducted if the US House of Representatives impeaches Trump, Politico reported, citing unnamed sources.

    According to sources cited by the media outlet, the White House seeks evidence of a commitment to due process, particularly as Republicans criticize Democrats for how they are conducting the impeachment proceedings. 

    Republican Senators reportedly noted, during the meeting, that there are not enough votes to approve a motion to dismiss the trial, stressing that it would take just three Republicans to block any impeachment vote on the Senate floor, Politico said, citing sources.

    “Different people have different opinions of what to do but the main message [is] that a motion to dismiss won’t fly [...] They understand it because we’re hitting the House on lack of due process. Most trials you at least hear the evidence first", the source said, cited by Politico.

    House Democrats allege that Trump pressed Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to open a probe into the Bidens by withholding nearly $400 million in US military aid - a charge Republicans deny, pointing to the release of the cash several weeks prior to a July 25 request by Trump, even though Ukraine never launched a Biden investigation.

    Democrats have blocked a Republican request to subpoena Hunter Biden to testify.

    Trump declassified what the White House claims is the full, unedited transcript of his telephone call with Zelensky. The president denied wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine. Trump has also inexplicably attempted to paint the impeachment inquiry as a political "witch hunt" by Democrats aimed at reversing the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election.

    House Democrats in the ongoing impeachment inquiry have scheduled testimony this week from eight witnesses.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden publicly admitted that, as US vice president, he threatened to withhold some $1 billion in US military aid unless Ukraine dismissed a prosecutor who was investigating a company that employed his son, Hunter.

    Senior White House officials and several Senate Republicans reportedly agreed earlier in the day that a full trial should be conducted if the US House of Representatives impeaches US President Donald Trump.

    Spokesman for the White House Hogan Gidley said Thursday that Trump wants to launch this trial in the US Senate with former US Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter and a whistleblower - whose complaint showed Trump may have abused power of office during the 25 July phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky - among the witnesses.

    "We were in the Oval Office and we were having a conversation about these hearings. The president did nothing wrong. He wants that plain and clearly explain to the American people. But he also feels that there is no basis to move forward at all in the House. But if they do, he wants a trial in the Senate. He wants to be able to bring up witnesses like Adam Schiff, like the whistleblower, like Hunter Biden, like Joe Biden. And he says if the House moves forward with the sham and they continue to push these fake, illegitimate proceedings onto the American people then he wants it to go to the Senate and he wants a trial", Gidley said, cited by Fox News.

    In September, House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry after a whistleblower complaint claimed Trump may have abused the power of the office by pressuring Zelensky to investigate the Bidens, alleging that Trump withheld nearly $400 million in US military aid - a charge Republicans deny, pointing to the release of the cash several weeks prior to a July 25 request by Trump, even though Ukraine never launched a Biden investigation.
