Watch Live: Trump’s Defense Team Wraps Up Their Case In The Impeachment Trial

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s defense team will wrap up their opening arguments in the impeachment trial on Tuesday, urging senators not to remove him from office.

The House voted to impeach Trump in December, charging him with abuse of power for withholding aid to Ukraine until the country agreed to announce an investigation into Trump’s political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden and his family, as well as with obstructing Congress during the House’s impeachment inquiry on the issue.

The defense team argued before the Senate on Saturday and Monday that the president’s actions were justified.
