MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) — Thursday was the last day for House Managers to present evidence to prove that former President Donald Trump incited a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Dr. Sean Wilson, a professor of political science and law at Wright State University, said that one way to look at Thursday’s proceedings is as an attempt to damage the reputation of Trump. He said the lawyers that create the scripts being read know what journalists will pick up on and are using that to put Trump in a “box.”
At this time, impeachment doesn’t seem likely. A two-thirds vote is required and Democrats have only convinced a handful of Republicans to vote for the impeachment of Trump.
Wilson believes that senators from both sides know they can’t drag this trial on forever, and because of that, it should be settled sometime soon.
