Eyeing swift impeachment trial, Trump’s legal team aims to block witnesses and cast doubt on charges
Trump's legal team is planning on making the impeachment trial as short as they can. Some think that the trial is a slam dunk for The Impeached Donald.
As reported by The Washington Post:
White House lawyers are trying to engineer the fastest impeachment trial in American history, aiming to have President Trump acquitted by the Senate without witnesses and after just a few days of proceedings, according to senior administration officials.
Trump’s desire for a short trial has solidified over the past few weeks, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) delayed transmitting two articles of impeachment to the Senate because of concerns about how the trial would be structured. The White House, which previously supported a more expansive trial in the GOP-led Senate, has now accepted the idea that senators should make quick work of acquitting Trump.
“I think it’s extraordinarily unlikely that we’d be going beyond two weeks,” said a senior administration official, who briefed reporters Wednesday on the condition of anonymity. “We think that this case is overwhelming for the president, and the Senate’s not going to be having any need to be taking that amount of time on this.” Read more.
The truth is the case is overwhelmingly against Trump. The evidence, if considered objectively and as a whole, shows Donald Trump committed an impeachable offense. However, it is likely that he will not be held accountable for his actions.
But then again, who knows?
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”
