Senate impeachment trial: Key vote to have witnesses fails, with timing of vote to acquit unclear

The Senate on Friday voted to block any witnesses from being called in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, a move that will mark the beginning of the end of the third Senate trial for a president in US history.

The vote to acquit the President is a forgone conclusion -- but its timing remains up in the air, and it could slip past Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday.
