President Donald Trump is not charged in either of the articles of impeachment with violating a criminal statute, although he is accused of unlawful conduct.
The trial is far from over. Trump's legal defense team will layout a brief preview of their case Saturday and pick back up on Monday. Later next week, senators will have a question-and-answer period and a fierce debate over whether to subpoena witnesses is expected.
The clip of McCain, who often drew the scorn of Trump, was yet another example of the impeachment managers using the words of Republicans and some of Trump's staunchest defenders against him.
If Republicans choose to forgo witnesses, they run the risk of additional damning information coming to light after the trial. But the Democratic managers may have alienated the few moderate Republicans who've yet to decide whether they need more evidence.
House impeachment managers use Republicans' words from the past to dispel the notion that a president cannot be impeached for acts that do not amount to crimes.
The likelihood of such a potential deal seems miniscule, as many Republicans have said they don't believe any witnesses are necessary and Democrats say Hunter Biden is irrelevant to hear from.
President Donald Trump is no stranger to appearing on the big screen—and his impeachment trial playing out in the Senate is no exception.
Democrats have acknowledged what may have been their last chance to force subpoenas for witnesses and documents the White House denied to House impeachment investigators has come and gone.
Lofgren is one of the seven House members chosen by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to serve as managers in Trump's trial.
The move to modify a resolution to outline the rules for President Trump's Senate impeachment trial underscored the power that a small group of Republican lawmakers wield over leadership.
No one person should have the power of war and peace, but certainly not that sort of person.
GOP senators appeared apathetic to the news that a government watchdog determined Trump violated the law by withholding aid from Ukraine and that new evidence further detailed the president's efforts to force the ouster of a former ambassador and pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.
GOP Senate leaders, as well as rank-and-file Republicans, don't agree with the president's legal team about seeking a dismissal of the impeachment articles.
Welcome to just the second Monday so far this year.
The senator said generals privately complain they "can't be won."
"Let me be clear: I do not believe Democrats are in love with terrorists, and I apologize for what I said earlier this week," the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee wrote in a series of tweets.
The transfer of the articles will mark a major political win for the Senate majority leader, who was successful in corralling enough support for trial rules that will largely mirror those in Bill Clinton's impeachment trial.
What can the president do and who does he have to tell? The killing of Iranian General Soleimani renewed the debate over war powers, the military and the CIA.
"Senator, some of us still respect the Constitution and understand our role in Congress isn't to bow or kiss the ring of the President," Ilhan Omar told Lindsey Graham.
The question over what sort of legal binding the measure holds is not as clear-cut as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle might hope.
The letter cited four specific instances when Barr made comments the association felt impaired the Department of Justice to be viewed as an impartial agency.
Absent the likelihood that the heightened conflicts between the U.S. and Iran will—at the moment—lead to further immediate conflict, lawmakers are now free to focus on attempts to limit the president's ability to circumvent Congress and take such consequential future military action.
Congressman Seth Moulton told MSNBC's Katy Tur Wednesday that information received during a congressional intelligence briefing was conflicting and "quite vague."
It seems unlikely the measure will receive a vote because Republicans are confident they'll stave off Democrats' demands to subpoena witnesses.
The legislation, which is privileged and means the GOP-led Senate will be forced to vote on the matter, comes amid extremely intensified tensions with Iran in the wake of a U.S. airstrike in Iraq that killed one of Iran's top military generals, Qasem Soleimani.
President Donald Trump threatened Iraq with sanctions if it ordered U.S. troops out of the country and warned Iran he would hit cultural targets—a potential war crime—if it attacks Americans.
The Senate minority leader said he wants the Senate and the American people to "hear all the evidence."
"And to my Democratic colleagues: Every commander in chief has the inherent authority to protect our troops in the field. He had all the authorization he needs," Graham said during an appearance on 'Hannity' Friday.
Elissa Slotkin released a statement explaining why Presidents Bush and Obama did not kill Soleimani, and warned that Trump needs to work with Congress to prepare for aftermath.
