Donald Trump impeachment trial continues as Senate hears closing arguments

Washington Correspondent

Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial in the US Senate has all the hallmarks of a nail biter. A surprise request for witnesses came this morning and looked like it would delay the final vote that was expected to wrap up proceedings today. The Democrats said they wanted to hear the testimony of a Republican Congresswoman who says she was told about a telephone call that proves Mr Trump refused to call off the storming of the Capitol.

After a vote and then a recess they decided to put the congresswoman’s testimony into evidence…so no witnesses. After all this the one thing that still doesn’t seem in doubt is the verdict.
