After the night vote in the House of Representatives is rigsretssagen against president Donald Trump is a fact.
But no one knows now, when the matter itself is allowed to start.
The democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi stated that the House of Representatives, where she manages the majority are not necessarily ready to give the case to proceed to the next instance, the senate, where the matter to be decided.
In the senate, sitting Pelosis political opponents, the republicans were in power, with 53 out of a total of 100 members. And here is flertalsleder Mitch McConnell is not a bit happy with the latest 'delay'.
"Mrs Pelosi is perhaps nervous that their case against the president is not strong enough. Perhaps this is why she is now afraid. If the democrats are sure of their case, so I do not understand why we do not continue with the same," said McConnell, according to the New York Times.
If everything went as McConnell wants, would the senate start the rigsretssagen a short time after the new year.
in Order to get president Trump aside, two-thirds of the senate members to vote 'guilty'. And with 53 republican senators, this would be unlikely.
Therefore, considering Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the democratic party now, to wait on the new witnesses.
Already in november called Pelosi and the democratic party, the former national security advisor, John Bolton, secretary of defense Mike Pompeo, Trumps spokesperson Mick Mulvaney and the president's personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani.
These potentially important witnesses were prohibited from meeting up - direct from The White House.
Whether the witnesses, despite the Trump-ban have the legal obligation to meet-up, vurdres in the moment of the various courts. And this assessment can take months.
If the case draws out, will Donald Trump go into battle for re-election in 2020, with the serious accusations hanging over his head.
Therefore, will Mitch McConnell as soon as possible to have the case over.
But Nancy Pelosi has clearly not busy.
"If Mr McConnell is convinced that our case against Trump is thin, why is he so afraid of these obvious witnesses. Let the witnesses speak and let the matter take its fair time."
Donald Trump is just the third president in american history, provided for a rigsret.
According to the democrats abused the Trump of his power, when he asked the Ukrainian president to find political dirt on his democratic opponent, Joe Biden. And when Trump subsequently prevented the witnesses in the meeting and held important documents, did the president himself (according to Nancy Pelosi) are guilty of to prevent congressional work.Updated Date: 21 December 2019, 00:00
