If you can tell a book by its cover, the questions posed by Republican and Democratic senators at President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial Wednesday clearly showed one thing: Most of their minds are made up.
After a week of opening statements from the two sides, the questions from senators – delivered in writing and read by Chief Justice John Roberts – represented a new phase in the impeachment trial that will continue today. Then on Friday, the central issue of witnesses and documents will be addressed.
The overall impression left by the first day of questions was that senators have made up their minds and merely want more reasons to defend their upcoming votes. If that’s the case, Friday could give Republicans the chance to show if they have 51 votes against further testimony and evidence. That would seal the deal for the president.
