During the Senate’s impeachment trial against President Trump Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has proposed a number of amendments, requesting subpoenas for documents and key testimonies, and has been struck down by the Republican majority each time.

Senators have voted 53-47 along party lines to table each amendment, effectively killing each one.

In the first amendment, Schumer demanded a subpoena against the White House for Ukraine related documents.

In the second amendment, Schumer requested to subpoena certain Department of State documents and records. Again, it was rejected.

Schumer’s third amendment called for a subpoena on documents from the Office of Management and Budget.

The fourth amendment was a request to subpoena White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to testify.

In the fifth amendment, Schumer asked to subpoena certain documents and records from the Department of Defense.

A sixth amendment was for a subpoena against Mulvaney’s senior adviser Robert Blair and Michael Duffey, the associate director of national security at the Office of Management and Budget.

At nearly midnight Tuesday, the Senate was entering into a two-hour debate on Schumer’s seventh amendment, “To prevent the selective admission of evidence and to provide for appropriate handling of classified and confidential materials.”
