Closing arguments at former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial were expected to get underway Saturday morning — with each side granted two hours to make their final case to the US Senate before an expected vote on the verdict later in the day.
But Day 5 started instead with House impeachment manager Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) asking to subpoena records and call a witness sparking fierce debate with Trump defense lawyer Michael van der Venn.

I want Peter Navarro to speak as a witness.
Point of inquiry, what are we voting on? Leahy says asking what they are voting on is not allowed under Senate rules.
If Raskin wants witnesses, he doesn’t think he’s made his point strongly enough.
Fine. The longer this goes on the more paralyzed the Democrat congress will be.
What did they just vote for? All witnesses or just one witness?
Excellent - I hope this drags out for weeks, if not months. Burn the time off the calendar. With congress doing this, they are doing other damage to the country.
If Raskin calls a witness then Trump can call witnesses. Why drag this out Raskin? You’re finished.
Didn’t Lindsey say witnesses would take weeks or months? Bring it on.
I’m overcome with a feeling of unity.
Why did Graham change his vote to aye?
Not to worry. Josef Stolen needs no dem congress as he is ruling by EO.
“We make up the rules as we go”
From disgraced and impeached alcee hastings
Democrats make up the rules
This might just be a ruse to keep this circus going on indefinatly
There will be witnesses...The Democrats got their wish...A few Republicans voted with them...
What a waste of time...Let’s have a vote to acquit Mr. Trump and move forward...
I am not too happy about this witness business...
If you want a delay, it will be a long one with many, many witnesses.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) February 13, 2021
Next nutty move, all the sinators are in the room, or nearly all, and Schumer suggest absence of a quorum, that there aren’t 50 members there.
This is how the Senate would operate if they didn’t have time to script the theater behind closed doors. Out of control, nutty, borderline psychotic people.
