United States President, Joe Biden, on Friday, told reporters that he is anxious to see how Republicans will vote in the impeachment trial for the country’s former President Donald Trump.
“I am just anxious to see what my Republican friends do if they stand up,” Biden said.
Biden explained that he was not going to discuss with any of the Republican Senators on how they should vote.
Recall that on Thursday, impeachment managers wrapped up a two-day-long presentation of the case against Trump and called on the United States Senate to convict the former president over the Capitol attack and disqualify him from any future public office.
House managers, who act as prosecutors in the Senate trial, passed the floor to Trump’s lawyers, who’ll take the stage on Friday with up to 16 hours for opening arguments.
The defence team, according to CNN, is expected within a day to present the case for Trump’s acquittal, giving way for the senators to debate and vote on the case.
The verdict may be passed this weekend and is likely to be in favour of Trump, given a lack of a two-thirds majority in the chamber needed for conviction.
