Here are some of the key moments from Trump's trial.

24.1.2020

Hall-of-fame shortstop Derek Jeter was name-checked by House impeachment manager Hakeem Jeffries who said that perhaps a deeply divided Congress could agree to investigate the one person out of 397 voters who opposed Jeter’s bid for Cooperstown

Here are some of the key moments from Trump's trial.

Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney 4:25 P.M. Trial could finish by late next week The Senate impeachment trial could wrap up by next Thursday or Friday if the White House decides not to use its full 24 hours for opening arguments, as the president's lawyer Jay Sekulow suggested. "We're not going to try to run the clock out," Sekulow told reporters Thursday. "We're going to do what we think — as our legal team thinks — is appropriate to present our case." Sekulow did not specify how much time the White House planned to use, saying "we'll make that determination" after the House impeachment managers finish their opening arguments. The White House is set to present its opening arguments Saturday, which may be a shorter-than-usual day. If the president's lawyers finish by Monday, the Senate can then move on to a 16-hour question and answer period. If a subsequent vote to subpoena additional witnesses and documents fails, the chamber can move to a final vote by late next week. "I am confident that whether it is Saturday or Monday or Tuesday that the case will be made defending the president," Sekulow said. — Marianne LeVine 4:15 P.M. Trump 'pleased' with trial so far President Donald Trump took off for the annual RNC Winter Meeting in Florida with just a wave to the press gathered outside the White House. Lately, he’s avoided stopping for the cameras on the South Lawn. The weather has been cold, but also it allows the president to let his tweets do the talking. Throughout the day, the president offered his thoughts on Twitter about his 2020 rivals and the impeachment proceedings. “Most unfair & corrupt hearing in Congressional history!” The president tweeted. Meanwhile, aides maintained that the president has been happy with how things are going on Capitol Hill. “The president though has been very pleased with the way things are going for a myriad of reasons, one is because the evidence and facts prove he’s done nothing wrong,” deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters. “We’re looking forward to the chance to lay out our case, the attorneys are excited about that.” Another aide monitoring the hearings declared they had “not seen anything new.” — Meridith McGraw 3:25 P.M. Jerry Nadler 'stunned' Susan Collins into writing a note to John Roberts Sen. Susan Collins, "stunned” by Rep. Jerry Nadler’s late-night diatribe this week against what he deemed a “cover-up” by Senate Republicans for President Donald Trump, said in an interview Thursday that she a note to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Collins said she believed the back and forth between Nadler (D-N.Y.) and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone violated Senate rules and felt compelled to point that out, even though senators are required to stay at their desks and not speak during the trial. “It reminded me that if we were in a normal debate in the Senate, that the rule would be invoked to strike the words of the senator for impugning another senator. So I did write a note raising the issue of whether there’d been a violation of the rules,” Collins said. “I gave that note to Laura Dove and shortly thereafter the chief justice did admonish both sides. And I was glad that he did.” Read more: POLITICO
