Fifth day of Trump’s impeachment trial – 2/13 (FULL LIVE STREAM)
On Feb. 13, the Senate voted to acquit former president Donald Trump of “incitement of insurrection” after the deadly Capitol riot.
The Senate abandoned a plan to call witnesses in the trial after initially voting to do so. In a surprising turn, lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) asked that a statement from Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) be admitted into the record rather than she be subpoenaed for testimony. Herrera Beutler’s statement says that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told her that Trump had expressed sympathy for the mob during a heated phone call between the two as the Jan. 6 attack was unfolding.
