At least 51 senators are required to dismiss the president
The Upper House of Congress is preparing for the final vote, which will put an end to the story of the impeachment of US President Donald Trump.
At 16:00 Washington time, a resolution will be passed to vote in the Senate, which will decide the fate of the 45th owner of the White House.
In the event that at least 51 senators out of 100 votes in favor, the president will nevertheless be dismissed, which is unlikely, since the majority in the Senate (53 seats) belongs to Trump's associates from the Republican Party. Otherwise, the document will be rejected.
The day before, on February 4, the Senate concluded the final hearing as part of the impeachment procedure вЂ” the team of lawyers Donald Trump made the last word, ending his speech with an appeal for his acquittal.
Democratic members initiated an impeachment process against the president on September 24, 2019, after an American informant expressed concern about Trump's telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky on July 25.
