¿Cómo se comparan los dos juicios políticos de Trump?

By Jordi Bou

February 9, 2021 - El segundo juicio político del expresidente Donald Trump guardasimilitudes con el del año pasado, pero la diferencia fundamental es que Trump será el primero que será juzgado por el Senado tras dejar el cargo.

Trump’s second impeachment trial will force the Senate to decide whether to convict him of incitement of insurrection after a violent mob of his supporters laid siege to the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.

While Trump’s acquittal is expected, Democrats hope to gain at least some Senate Republican votes by linking Trump’s actions to a vivid description of the violence, which resulted in five deaths and sent lawmakers fleeing for safety.

A second impeachment acquittal by the Senate would be a victory for Trump — and would prove he retains considerable sway over his party, despite his efforts to subvert democracy and widespread condemnation from his GOP colleagues after Jan 6.
