Trump urges Senate to reject impeachment as affront to US Constitution

WASHINGTON, Jan 20 (Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s lawyers argued on Monday that the impeachment case against him is a product of a rigged process by Democrats and “must be rejected” in the Senate trial that gets under way in earnest on Tuesday.

An executive summary of Trump’s pre-trial brief for the Senate proceedings urges the Republican-led Senate to quickly acquit the president on two articles of impeachment approved against him by the Democratic-controlled House of Representation.
