Alexander on impeachment
Tennessee U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, a Republican, is speaking out as President Donald Trump's impeachment trial gets underway in Washington, reminding the public all sides in the case need to be fairly heard. On Tuesday senators mapped out how the proceeding will be conducted before hearing opening arguments from House Democrats who will prosecute the case and White House lawyers defending the president. "We have a constitutional duty to hear the case." said Alexander. "That means to me, number one, hear the arguments on both sides, and not dismiss the case out of hand. Number two, ask our questions, consider the answers and study the record." Alexander tweeted that he supports a resolution guaranteeing a vote on whether the Senate needs additional evidence at the appropriate time.
