Trump impeachment trial: Five possible twists ahead – BBC News

36


For only the third time in US history, an impeachment trial is under way in Washington. President Donald Trump is accused of an abuse of power and obstructing Congress.

Many believe it’s a foregone conclusion that Mr Trump – who denies the charges – will be acquitted at the end of this process because his party controls the Senate.

The BBC’s Anthony Zurcher explains how events could yet diverge from the script.

    Disgusting reporting as usual from the BBC. Never mind it only speeds up the inevitable reckoning headed the corporation's way. Defund the BBC.

    He should be on trial for murder

  14. Susan Diane Howell says

    While many others believe it's a foregone conclusion that President "Mr Trump" – who denies the charges – will be acquitted at the end of this process because there is no case for an impeachment and removal from his station as elected U.S. President.

    Corruption is the true enemy of the people.

  16. Refute Clip says

    Miss interpretation of the news= corrupt and fake news.

  17. Progressive Demagogue says

    This is another car crash for the Democrats. They've spent 3 years trashing Trump, and not talking about alternate policies. Then they put up 3 dead beat candidates. Trump will win again in November.

  18. King Peppy says

    COVER UP !!!!

  19. Debra Jensen says

    Drug on too long? It's the shortest road to impeachment ever!! This only started in September. Don't be misled just because so many people have wanted an impeachment to start for three years and there were always investigations going on.

    who ever in power, whether democrat or republican, american exceptionalism will always be enforced by any means to all over the world

  21. AndreA Pearl says

    He's not worried. Mitch McConnell is behind trump all the way! This trial is a farce!

  22. Henree Henry says

    Trump, an embarrassment to US. What do you have to hide? Apparently Everything. Reagan :Bush turning in their graves. He’s destroyed integrity intelligence & democracy. Sen Reps are so afraid of him, they’ve lied & will do anything for this corrupt narcissist. Nice role models for their kids.

  23. Billy Bob says

    Jeez BBC propaganda.
    Get over it Trump won in 2016
    Move on.

  24. Drmicky141 says

    I bet he'll win a 2nd term, just like the incompentent Tsai in Tw. They're in the right place at the right time so just go with the flow.

  25. Necrocosmopoliticon says

    LOL the music. American noir

  26. Alan Conlan says

    There can be no economic balance or peaceful coexistence on our planet until the corrupt US Regime is brought to an end. Yes, regime it is, the US people have long since lost their democracy. All their presidents, past and present, are coerced mouthpieces for this Regime. The Regime's war machine dollar, propped up by Wall Street hype, has already zeroed. The world is watching, patiently awaiting reality to strike.
