The impeachment trial of Donald Trump, manufactured by the Democrats and labelled as theatrical will go ahead, with 55 to 45 senators voting in favour of the charges that the former president has been accused of.
However, it seems that the Democrats are fighting a losing battle with 67 senators needed on a two-thirds majority vote to get the conviction they crave. Trump has received overwhelming support from the Republican Party and looks like the dangerous precedent that the Democrats tried to set in convicting a former president could have failed before it’s even begun.
There now remains the prospect of Donald Trump facing Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election. Something that may just appease and rejuvenate Republican voters.
Sputnik spoke with Michael Swadling from the Croydon Constitutionalists to hear his thoughts on the upcoming impeachment trial and if the Democrats are already facing defeat in their battle to stop Trump running for president again.
