Friday may be the final day of the trial of the impeachment of the President of the United States Donald trump in the Senate.

President trump accused of abuse of power and obstructing the work of Congress. Both charges related to his attempt to elicit from the President of Ukraine of investigation of Ukraine hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden.

On Friday, the senators must decide whether they want to hear witnesses. Democrats insist on calling the Senate a former aide to President trump national security Affairs John Bolton, who in his new book, claims that Donald trump wanted to achieve from the Ukrainian authorities on the investigation, threatening them with the delay of us military aid. The vast majority of Republican senators believe that this is not necessary. To call witnesses requires a simple majority of senators. If all the Democrats vote for the measure, for its approval will need the votes of four Republicans. By Thursday evening, according to the leadership of the Republican faction in the Senate, four wavering Republican senators – MITT Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Lamar Alexander had intended to vote against calling witnesses.

If this happens, according to the established procedure, the Senate shall have a final vote on the charges against the President. If the head of the Senate minority and Chuck Schumer will not be able to achieve the postponement of the election, and he hinted Thursday that he would try to do this, it is expected that Donald trump will be justified on Friday.
