White House attorneys concluded their defence of President Donald Trump at his historic Senate impeachment trial on Monday with a name for his acquittal of fees of abuse of energy.
“The president has done nothing wrong,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone advised the 100 senators who will resolve Trump’s destiny with a vote on Wednesday.
Denouncing Trump’s impeachment by the House of Representatives as “purely partisan and political,” Cipollone stated, “We put our faith in the Senate.”
“End the era of impeachment once and for all,” he urged senators, by rejecting the 2 articles of impeachment.
