Following the Senate's decision not to allow witnesses in a 51-49 vote on Friday and two days of conclusive arguments and speeches by the senator, Wednesday begins what is likely to be the last day of the deposition of President Donald Trump.
According to CBS News, senators will continue to give their 10-minute speeches in the morning, with a vote – probably for acquittal – expected to take place on Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET.
The process is about whether Trump should be removed from office because of his behavior in dealing with Ukraine. That includes a phone call in July in which he seemed to be asking the country's new president to investigate the ties between a Ukrainian gas company and former US vice president Joe Biden, currently a Democratic presidential candidate, as well as his son Hunter Biden.
In December, the House agreed to two accusation articles that accused Trump of abusing power and obstructing Congress. Both votes were largely along party lines in the Democratically controlled House. The votes of 67 senators in the senate controlled by the republicans would be needed to put the president out of office.

Trump is the third president to be deposed by the House since the constitution was adopted in 1788. President Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were also deposed.
President Richard Nixon resigned before the House had the opportunity to accuse him of his role in the Watergate scandal. Both Johnson and Clinton were acquitted by the Senate in their respective deposition sentences.
What does Trump have to say?
In a six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in December prior to the House vote, Trump destroyed the procedure and said, "more appropriate trial was offered to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials. "
"It is time for you and the very partisan Democrats in Congress to immediately stop this fantasy fantasy and go back to work for the American people," wrote the president. "Although I don't expect you to do that, I am writing this letter to you for the purpose of history and to place my thoughts on a permanent and indelible report."
He has since responded and tweeted shame " and a " hoax ." When the conversation came for Bolton to testify at the end of January, Trump tweeted that he had "never said" to bind Ukraine's assistance to an investigation.about the accusation, calling it a "
Bolton writes in his new book, the design of which was described to The New York Times, that Trump refused. Release $ 391 million in military aid unless Ukraine helped investigate its political rivals.
Although he hasn't tweeted much about the deposition since the State of the Union on Tuesday-evening, earlier this week the president continued to call the deposition a "hoax" by the "Do Nothing, Radical Left Dems!"
