Former US President Donald Trump's lawyer predicted that the impeachment procedure would “tear the country apart.” Writes about this The New York Post.
In his opinion, the process could lead the United States to the state of the Civil War of 1861-1865. The lawyer added that “new wounds” could be opened because of the trials over the politician. Sean also criticized Trump's House of Representatives accusers for allegedly only hiding behind a desire for unity.
On February 7, it was reported that US lawmakers may suspend the impeachment procedure of the former president on the evening of February 12, if it lasts until that time.
On January 14, the US House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump over the riots in Washington. The last vote was the second attempt to remove Trump from office. Democrats motivate the decision to impeach a politician, among other things, by the fact that after the end of the process he will not be able to run for president. This is the first time the US has attempted to remove a state leader from office after the end of his presidential term.
