U.S. Senate allows witnesses to be called at Trump impeachment trial

The Senate voted to call witnesses to Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, a vote that could delay the process, results show.
Fifty-five senators voted in favor of calling witnesses, with 45 against. Five Republicans voted in favor.
Democrats said they wanted to call Republican congresswoman Jamie Herrera Betler before closing arguments were read. Trump’s defense opposed that.
If the process of questioning witnesses begins, the impeachment trial could stretch out. The impeachment vote was originally expected to take place as early as Saturday.
Trump is accused of sedition. On January 6, a crowd of his supporters trashed the U.S. Capitol and temporarily prevented the confirmation of the presidential election, which Trump’s rival Joe Biden won.
It takes 67 votes out of 100 senators to condemn Trump, but so far that number has not been reached.
