The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump began on Tuesday, Jan. 21, after a weekslong impasse over how the Senate trial would proceed, and debate over the rules stretched nearly 13 hours.
Reporting on day ten of the trial from NBC News:
The Senate faces a pivotal vote Friday afternoon on whether to call witnesses in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, potentially raising the question of whether Chief Justice John Roberts could cast a tie-breaking vote.
In a climactic moment Thursday night, Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, a key Republican swing vote on the question of whether to call ex-national security adviser John Bolton and other witnesses, said he would not support the additional testimony because, he said, while the House managers had proven their case, the charges against Trump do not meet the constitutional standard for an impeachable offense.
