Schiff, Trump's lawyer make initial cases to Senate

U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, the House Democrat leading the impeachment case against President Donald Trump, and White House counsel Pat Cipollone argued their points for and against removing the president from office.

U.S. President Donald Trump's impeachment trial began in earnest in the Senate on Tuesday in a rare use of the constitutional mechanism for ousting a president that has further polarized voters ahead of a November election.

Democrats have called on the Republican-controlled Senate to remove Trump from office for pressuring Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a political rival, and then obstructing the inquiry into the scandal.

Trump, who was impeached last month by the Democratic-led House of Representatives on charges of abusing power and obstructing Congress, says he has done nothing wrong and describes his impeachment as a partisan hoax to derail his 2020 re-election.
