Trump's lawyer spoke about the purpose of impeachment

Donald Trump

The goal of impeachment of former US President Donald Trump is to prevent him from running for the presidency in 2024. This opinion was expressed by the lawyer of the ex-head of state, Michael van der Veen, at the impeachment trial, RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

“This will turn the formal impeachment process into a mechanism for establishing some control by Congress over which individuals may or may not run for presidency,” the lawyer said, adding that the Democrats are trying to remove the opposition in this way.

According to van der Veen, the actions of the party in power are not directed against Trump personally, but against the millions of voters who support him.

On February 9, the Senate began a second impeachment trial against Trump. On January 14, the House of Representatives voted to impeach the former owner of the White House in connection with the riots in Washington. This is the first time the US has attempted to remove a state leader from office after the end of his presidential term.
