Trump's lawyers named the main goal of the second impeachment
Democrats have launched a second impeachment procedure for former United States President Donald Trump to strip him of his right to run in elections.
Donald Trump's lawyer Bruce Castor said this at a Senate hearing.
вЂњWe are really only meeting because the majority in the House of Representatives does not want to meet with Donald Trump as a political candidate in the future,вЂќ he said.
At the same time, according to the lawyer, from Trump's representatives in connection with the riots in Washington, вЂњthey will never hear anything other than condemnation and demands to punish those responsible by law.вЂќ
Earlier, the US Senate, where the majority are Republicans, recognized the constitutional process to impeach Trump.
Hearings will resume on Wednesday, February 10, at noon local time.
