so far, Donald Trump refused to participate in the rigsretssagen threatening. But now the 73-year-old president changed my mind.
After Nancy Pelosi and the other democrats in the House of Representatives on Tuesday unveiled their two official charges against Donald Trump, the 'abuse of power' and 'attempt to prevent the congress of the work',, the president has namely revealed that he will participate actively in the forthcoming trial, that after the new year to take place in the u.s. senate.
"the President will address these false accusations in the senate. And he expects to be acquitted of 100 percent."
How said Donald Trumps spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, after the so-called 'Articles of Impeachment' (counts) yesterday had been revealed on direct tv.
According to the newspaper the New York Times can Donald Trumps participation take place in two ways.
Most likely it is that the president's lawyers will present Trumps views on the matter in front of the senate's 53 republicans, two independents and 45 democratic members. Or president Trump, who still calls the case a 'witch hunt', can meet up in person to give a deposition.
According to Mark Mazzetti of The New York Times is the latter as well as the unthinkable.
"If the president makes himself personally available, he will also be asked questions by the senate's democratic members. And it can go wrong," writes Mark Mazzetti.
Before Donald Trump is the only Andrew Johnson in 1869 and Bill Clinton in 1998 has been brought to rigsret and accused of high treason. None of the two were however found guilty.
According to the democratic prosecutor abused the Donald Trump of his power, when he asked a foreign power, Ukarine to find private dirt on a political opponent, Joe Biden. Thus did Donald Trump, according to the prosecutors, his own private, political interests before the nation. And when president Trump subsequently prevented the documents from being handed over and key witnesses to appear for questioning, did the president himself allegedly guilty of to prevent congressional work.
After the historic announcement, which was brought directly on all american tv stations, stressed the president's republican party colleagues, that they like the president considers the upcoming impeachment as a poltisk farce.
the Democrats stressed the opposite, that it elected is their duty to hold the president accountable for his deeds.
'No, not even the president is above the law', said congressman Jerry Nadler thus, when he was to publish official counts.
According to Donald Trump and the republican party is trying for the democratic party to use rigsretssagen as a tool to win the presidential election next year. But the result of the very same impeachment may be the exact opposite.
Thus, the president has not only retained its popularity. In multiple polls is Donald Trump actually gone forward. Many american voters believes that rigsretssagen is a waste of time.
With a solid republican majority in the senate, it is in fact as good as certain that the president will be found 'not guilty', when the matter shall be settled in January or February.Updated Date: 13 December 2019, 08:00
