Capstone Forex Trading News: The U.S. Senate trial on US President Trump's impeachment case continues on the 31st. After four hours of debate, the Senate failed to pass a resolution calling for witnesses with 51 votes and 49 votes.
In the poll that day, all 45 Democratic MPs, 2 Independent MPs and 2 Republican MPs voted to summon witnesses, while the remaining 51 Republican MPs voted against it. The two Republicans who voted for the resolution were Mitt Romney and Susan Collins.
Senator Minority Party (Democrat) leader Schumer said after the vote was made that the result was "a tragic tragedy in American history, the Senate has not fulfilled its due obligations, a trial without witnesses is worthless, and the president will not be true Exemption. "
Before voting that day, the House impeachment manager team and Trump lawyers team debated whether to call witnesses for more than four hours. Schiff, the chief impeachment manager and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the trial without the witness was "unfounded." In accordance with previous impeachment practice, such as the trial of the former President Clinton impeachment, witnesses testify. He called for summoning key witnesses to President Bolton ’s national security affairs assistant, etc., for a week of hearings.

According to US media reports, Bolton revealed in his forthcoming new book that Trump had used military assistance in exchange for asking Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Biden. Bolton himself said that he would be willing to testify if he received a subpoena.
Trump's lawyer team is firmly opposed to calling witnesses. They argue that if prosecution witnesses Bolton are called, defence witnesses such as Democratic presidential candidate Biden and his son, Hunt Biden, etc., will be delayed. In addition, investigating cases is the responsibility of the House of Representatives, and the Senate has no obligation to help the House investigate the truth of the incident.
In this vote, two Republican "swinging" senators Alexander and Murkowski both voted against it at the last minute. Alexander said on the same day that there is enough evidence to prove that the terms of the House impeachment of the President are true and no new evidence is needed. "The president's actions are indeed wrong and inappropriate, but they have not been removed from office."
In a "call door" incident revealed in September last year, in a call with Ukrainian President Zelensky, Trump asked him to investigate the son of Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, and froze the opposition a week before Ukrainian military assistance. Affected by the incident, the House of Representatives voted in December to pass the impeachment clause, which officially impeached Trump.
With the vote determined not to call witnesses, the next trial of the impeachment case has become the focus of bipartisan disputes. Many Republican lawmakers expressed their hope that a final vote on the president's acquittal would be held that night or early the next morning, and were strongly opposed by Democratic lawmakers. CNN quoted Senators Barasso and Brent as saying the two parties have now reached an agreement that a final vote will take place on February 5.
It is worth mentioning that the earliest Iowa party and congress meeting to vote in the US election will be held on February 3. There are four Democratic presidential candidates among the senators. In addition, Trump will deliver a State of the Union address on February 4.
