United States Senator Chuck Schumer holds a news conference following impeachment proceedings in the Senate against President Donald Trump.

A two-thirds majority of the Senate would be required to convict and remove Trump, which is unlikely in the chamber where Republicans outnumber Democrats 53 to 47.

The articles accuse Trump of pressuring Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rival Biden, while withholding a valuable White House meeting and $391 million in military aid.

    You dont know what you talking about

  3. Did he watch the same thing we did? The eyes of history will be rolling, Mr Schumer. You are trivializing what SHOULD be a serious and solemn process. Focus on giving voters a reason to vote democrat in 2020…these manufactured outrages are not going to help you, let alone the country.

  4. Jo Biden isn’t worth it, he will not make it to November crying chuck. 😀

    You have no chance, stop with the drama speech.

  11. So much for an oath when he blathers about his predetermined vote when he hasn’t even heard any evidence.

    The Democrats “visibly gulped” as they realized they are now going to have to come clean with all their lies…

    Intel and legislative communities set there charges on impeachment and nothing else allowed. Deal with it you (democrats) had your say now Republican has there say.

  15. Trials have evidence. Cover-ups do not. I hope this will be a real trial with evidence including the witnesses we have never heard from under oath yet.

    The leadership in the Democratic party is shameless…they are geriatric, lying, desperate people trying to hold together their party by lying and twisting the truth.

  20. It is too bad that many of the comments here show a lack of concern, compassion, and integrity that shows complacency in Trump’s crime of holding money from Ukraine putting them at risk. How many died because the military did not have the arms from US to defend themselves from Russia’s invasion. Shame on those who think what Trump did was acceptable. https://www.justsecurity.org/67489/trumps-hold-on-ukrainian-military-aid-was-illegal/
