Trump’s legal team calls impeachment charges unlawful

The trial is set to resume on Tuesday when arguments get underway in the Senate.

Several of the House managers for the impeachment trial, including Reps. The second article charged Trump with obstructing Congress' investigation into the president's efforts. "We're allowed to amend it, and ask for them". Political pundits believe that the Senate is unlikely to remove Trump from the office.

"The threshold issue here is, will there be a fair trial?"

The document was an appeal directly to the senators to be impartial. That is the foundational issue on which everything else rests.

"If they're going to add something substantive, something substantial. that's one thing".

Dershowitz said on Sunday, however, that calling witnesses would introduce major delays.

It is expected to claim that the president did nothing wrong and had not been treated fairly.

"President Trump has betrayed the American people and the ideals on which the nation was founded", the Democratic briefing concludes. We have to play hard but fair. "It involves evidence. It involves documents".

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of the Trump's most fervent backers and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, echoed Dershowitz's line of reasoning.

US President Donald Trump's legal team on Saturday described his impeachment trial as unconstitutional, saying it lacks legitimacy to move forward.

"I didn't say it was OK", Shelby said. "That goes to the very heart of what the framers meant to be impeachable". Behind the scenes. the seven House managers were shoring up which prosecutor will handle which parts of the case and doing a walk-through of the Senate.

"This, to me, seems to undermine or indicate that they're getting cold feet or have a lack of confidence in what they've done so far", Cornyn added. "I've never seen anything where Trump was actually involved in it", he continued, before Stephanopoulos reminded him that the president encouraged Ukraine and China to investigate the Bidens publicly late a year ago. He hasn't had an opportunity to do that yet. "Now, for the first time, we'll have due process in the Senate". Both Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky have denied there was any pressure campaign waged by the White House to secure investigations.

The politically polarising impeachment case involves Mr Trump's attempt to persuade Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden previous year. In the Senate, only a handful of Republican lawmakers have suggested they would not simply support his exoneration.

In a 111-page document, they laid out their arguments supporting charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress against the President.

On potential witnesses, Nadler said he didn't think Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, would end up being called upon.

The two sides have been publicly fencing over whether the trial will be conducted quickly, perhaps in as little as two weeks - Trump's clear preference - or whether witnesses can be called and new evidence introduced - as Democrats insist is needed for a full and fair trial. Ray said on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures".

Members of Trump's team said that if they win a vindication for Trump, it means "an acquittal forever as well", Trump attorney Robert Ray said Sunday.

"The trial will take a much longer time, because the Democrats will call (former national security advisor) John Bolton, and the president will invoke executive privilege and it will have to go to the courts", he said on CNN.

Underscoring the stark divide running through the Senate, Cornyn said Trump was being impeached "for a non-crime for events that never occurred", while Nadler said: "Any jury would convict him in three minutes flat".

"This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election - now just months away", they argued in
