Impeachment trial: Trump touts defense team as they wrap up arguments in Senate

President Trump cheered his defense team and decried “the totally partisan Impeachment Hoax” in a tweet posted soon after White House attorneys wrapped up their first day of arguments before the Senate.

“Any fair minded person watching the Senate trial today would be able to see how unfairly I have been treated,” Trump wrote.

“This is indeed the totally partisan Impeachment Hoax that EVERYBODY, including the Democrats, truly knows it is,” he continued. “This should never be allowed to happen again!”

Trump’s lawyers spoke for less than two hours Saturday in their initial presentation of his defense against the two articles of impeachment passed by House Democrats in December.

They will take the Senate floor on Monday and Tuesday to complete their case.
