A brief filed Saturday, written by the seven House impeachment managers, asserts that President Donald Trump's scheme to withhold $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine in order to seek the announcement of a probe to benefit him politically was "the Framers' worst nightmare".

Trump's legal team, responding to the Senate's official summons for the trial, said the president "categorically and unequivocally" denies the charges of abuse and obstruction against him.

Stripped of legalese and structured in plain English, the documents underscored the extent to which the impeachment proceedings are a political rather than conventional legal process.

Sepsis Causes Far More Deaths Worldwide Than Thought
The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 looked at 282 causes of deaths across the globe but does not look at sepsis per se. Maternal disorders such as postpartum infections were the most common non-communicable disease that resulted in sepsis.


The president has enlisted the help of Alan Dershowitz, who helped get OJ Simpson cleared of double murder, and Ken Starr, who investigated Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate after weeks of delay in a futile attempt to demand new witness testimony in the coming trial.

Senator Mitt Romney, a Republican who has publicly sparred with Trump in the past, said he would vote to allow senators to call witnesses in the trial. Meanwhile, Graham has dismissed the possibility when it comes to Trump's case.

They include former national security adviser John Bolton and Trump acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. In the Senate, only a handful of Republican lawmakers have suggested they would not simply support his exoneration.

The six-page action details the support the head of state's legal team anticipates to make use of in the upcoming impeachment test. The impeachment managers refute that claim in the filing.

It takes only a majority of senators to set or change the rules, or overturn a decision by Roberts, and that's the key part of the trial to watch.

"The president has done nothing wrong and we believe that will be borne out in this process", said one of three sources close to the Trump legal team who briefed reporters on a conference call about the contents of the document.

The team will also argue that the impeachment hearings themselves were flawed, violating the president's right to due process.

"I want this trial to get over with as quickly as possible", Graham said, adding that he wants the American people to "pick their next president" in 2020. McConnell has said he's working closely with the president's team.

On Thursday, a nonpartisan federal watchdog concluded that President Trump broke the law when he froze assistance funds for Ukraine. The money was later released after Congress complained.

"The Senate must use that remedy now to safeguard the 2020 USA election, protect our constitutional form of government, and eliminate the threat that the President poses to America's national security". He must be removed from office.

The response - which calls the articles "constitutionally invalid" and says they are an attack on Americans - argued both substantively, against the charges in the articles, and procedurally, against the House's impeachment inquiry.
