Sen. Durbin wants witnesses and testimony at impeachment trial

Sen. Dick Durbin says the Senate has a solemn duty to perform with the impeachment trial of Pres. Trump. Even though many people expect Democrats like Durbin to vote to remove Trump from office and Republicans to vote to leave him in, Durbin says it should not be just a political maneuver. He says that’s why there should be witnesses and testimony.

Durbin says it shouldn’t be a rush job either. He spoke to news media about it during a visit to Ottawa Saturday.

Sen. Durbin speaks at the Illinois Valley Federation of Labor and Illinois Valley Building Trades Labor Summit.
