By Townhall. Pro-impeachment protesters were not happy when they found out during their demonstration outside the Capitol building that the Senate voted against having more witnesses and documents in President Trump’s impeachment trial.
Protesters had been chanting, “Convict, remove, send Donald Trump to jail. This fascist regime, is guilty as hell!” prior to the Senate’s vote.

When the vote was over, the crowd began to chant “Shame!” While there had been a small Capitol Police presence, more were brought in as the crowd became more agitated in the wake of the vote.
“Our government has failed us,” a protester who had been using a megaphone told those who had gathered.

The Senate Finally Reaches a Deal on When to Vote on the Articles
By Townhall. Sorry folks. It looks like this trial is not over yet. Although the Senate voted down the option to call forth more witnesses Friday night, the actual vote on the two articles of impeachment, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, has been delayed until next Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, following a few rounds of closing arguments. The new schedule means the vote is arriving the day after President Trump is delivering his fourth State of the Union.
Sen. Blunt tells @LACaldwellDC leaders have arrived at a deal:
– Resolution tonight with four amendments
-Nothing happening this weekend
-Monday: closing arguments
-Tuesday and Wednesday: public deliberations
-Vote Wednesday at 4PM ET on articles

WH's Eric Ueland on State of the Union, followed by impeachment verdict votes back to back: It's a strong one-two punch..We believe that both these elements your going to see play out next week help bring focus to the president successes, where he's going to take the country
