Trump impeachment: Defense lawyers present argument on day 4 of Senate trial | LIVE
CA, 13 Feb 2021
WARNING: Contains language and violent content not suitable for all viewers.
After a prosecution case rooted in emotive, violent images from the Capitol siege, Donald Trump’s impeachment trial shifts on Friday to defense lawyers who are expected to argue that Trump had nothing to do with the violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Impeachment managers wrapped up their impeachment case against the former president on Thursday.
The House has charged Trump, a Republican, with inciting an insurrection by exhorting thousands of supporters to march on the Capitol on Jan. 6, the day Congress gathered to certify Democrat Joe Biden's election win.
Democrats face a difficult task in securing a Senate conviction and barring Trump from ever again seeking public office. A two-thirds majority in the Senate must vote to convict, which means at least 17 Republicans would have to defy Trump and his continued popularity among Republican voters.
