As President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial starts on Tuesday, the White House unveiled it’s, extensive, detailed legal defence as the U.S. Senate gears up to begin President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial .
The document contends that the House failed to prove that Trump explicitly linked aid for Ukraine to an investigation he was seeking into political rival and former Vice President Joe Biden, and it states that House Dems ultimately failed to identify any “impeachable offence” and thus the case against President Trump is “irredeemably flawed.”
President Donald Trump’s lawyers argued in a brief filed on Monday, which was their first formal response to the case against the President, that the House failed to show a criminal violation and that his conviction in the Senate impeachment trial would fundamentally change the separation of powers.
The president’s legal team will also argue that the Senate should deal with this ‘swiftly’ and reject the impeachment articles quickly, this according to two people working with the president’s legal team who briefed reporters on the condition in secret and in anonymity.
The White House also tweeted on Monday: “The process that brought the articles here violated every precedent and every principle of fairness followed in impeachment inquiries for more than 150 years.”
Starting Jan. 21, the trial resumes at 1 p.m. EST and is expected to continue six days a week, with the exception of Sundays.
