Pelosi: Adam Schiff heads the trial team with the goal of isolating Trump

2020-01-15T17:19:49.053Z



US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Donald Trump is trying a parliamentarian for trying to influence a foreign government for personal gain, adding that prosecutors will be identified and an indictment presented to the Senate for trial.

She added - in a press conference held in Washington on the procedures for the trial of President Nabia in preparation for his dismissal - that Representative Adam Schiff was assigned to supervise the prosecutors team in the trial aimed at removing Trump.

Schiff - a former federal prosecutor in California - led the parliamentary investigation in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, resulting in Trump's accusation of abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

Yesterday, Tuesday, after weeks of deadlock over laws and witnesses, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Pelosi announced that the trial of the president, the third in the country's history, will begin soon.

Two charges
On December 18, Trump became the third president to stand trial after the House of Representatives vote to bring two formal charges against him.

But it is highly unlikely that Trump will be condemned in the Senate because Republicans have a majority of 53 to 47 seats for Democrats, and exceeding the two-thirds threshold required for his conviction is difficult.

The first accusation against Trump is unlawfully seeking Ukraine’s help for his re-election campaign this year and abuse of power to prevent this country from receiving US aid with the aim of pressuring it to open an investigation with Joe Biden, the former vice president who is currently leading the Democratic nomination race for 2020.

The second accusation is an attempt to obstruct justice by failing to provide witnesses and investigative documents, in defiance of subpoenas issued by Congress.

Supreme Court President John Roberts will preside over the trial in which Trump faces charges of abuse of his powers and obstruction of Congress.

Trump has consistently described his trial as a "hoax" and a "chase" operation and has attacked his removal measures, calling it "the most unfair and unbalanced hearing in Congressional history."

For her part, Pelosi called for a fair trial and demanded the elders to call witnesses and bring documents from the White House that will be very important to the trial, and said, "The American people deserve the truth, and the constitution demands a trial. The president and the senators must be held accountable."
