Senate refuses to require e-mails from The White House in the impeachment

the Senate of the UNITED states on Tuesday rejected several proposals from the Democrats to require documents and evidence presented in rigsretssagen against president Donald Trump.

In three separate proposals for the disclosure of e-mails and other documents in the case from The White House, the Senate has voted against.

It happens with the votes, 53 to 47. All 53 republicans in the 100-man Senate, followed their partilinje in all three polls.

at the same time, the Senate has rejected that budgetdirektøren in The White House, Mick Mulvaney, may be witnessed in the rigsretssagen against Trump.

the Democrats have demanded that Mick Mulvaney to testify about his knowledge of the Trump in conflict with the law detained $ 400 million - which Congress had granted to Ukraine as blackmail.

the News agency Reuters describes the outcome as "an early sign that the case will continue in a direction that is advantageous for Trump".

According to the Democrats The White House is in possession of several documents, which will shed light on Donald Trumps the alleged attempt to push Ukraine to dig the dirt up on the democrat Joe Biden.

the Senate opened Tuesday rigsretssagen against Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress work.

This is deep disagreement between republicans and democrats in the Senate.

A team of democratic members from the House of Representatives, to act as prosecutors in the case, must be called witnesses and presented documents from The White House and the state department.

It has the republican flertalsleder in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, in advance said that he did not want. Instead he has presented a plan for a process with no new witnesses or documents.

The democratic minority leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, call Mitch McConnells plan a "cover up". He believes that McConnell in cahoots with the president to conceal a criminal act.
