(NewsReady.com) – The Senate impeachment trial started this week and Democrats were already disgruntled from the very beginning.
Democrats in the Senate didn’t approve of how the impeachment trial would be conducted. So, much of the first day was spent in a sort of back and forth where Democrats would propose an amendment while Republicans struck it down. One of the requests made by Democrats involved the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), calling on the office to release information deemed to be crucial to the articles of impeachment set against President Trump.
Later that same night, the OMB released a lengthy stash of papers related to the impeachment process. The office provided 192 pages of documents related to financial aid being initially withheld and eventually provided to Ukraine. They apparently contain information that wasn’t previously available for the House impeachment hearings.
These documents were released under a Freedom of Information request made by the American Oversign watchdog organization. According to the OMB, there may be more information released soon.
We’ll keep you posted on this and other impeachment trial developments.
