Although Donald Trump is no longer president, it is entirely after the book that he is brought before a federal court, the Senate assessed last night.
There is nothing in the US Constitution that prevents the Supreme Court case against former President Donald Trump from continuing unhindered – even if he is no longer president.
It is clear after a majority in the US Senate last night voted yes to continue the case against Donald Trump , after his defense had tried in vain to argue that the whole process was unconstitutional. It happened on the first day of the trial against the former president.
44 voted no, while 56 voted yes, including a handful of Republican senators .
Donald Trump is on trial for inciting riots after protesters stormed Congress on January 6 . Here, thousands of angry Trump supporters had gathered in Washington to support the president’s unsubstantiated allegations that he had actually won the November presidential election over Democrat Joe Biden.
Five people were killed.
What happened on the first day of the trial?
The images of shouting, screaming and violent protesters are by no means unknown.
Still, there was complete silence in the Senate when a video montage of the attack on Congress on January 6 was played out as the first day of the federal trial began last night.
Following initial proceedings, members of the House of Representatives presented a series of videos from social media clipped along with tweets from Donald Trump as part of their of the evidence.
All evidence of the accusation that Donald Trump incited the uprising that led to the attack on Congress and ended up costing five people their lives.
The purpose on the first day of the second federal lawsuit against Trump was to determine whether the basis is in accordance with the U.S. Constitution or not. Leading prosecutor Jamie Raskin warned in sharp terms against what he called the “January exception” – that an outgoing president cannot be brought before a federal court when he is just a few days from leaving office.
“There can be no exceptions,” Raskin said.
