Impeachment Managers Continue Opening Arguments in Trump’s Senate Trial

HeadlineJan 24, 2020

Democratic lawmakers continued to lay out their case Thursday for removing the president of the United States from office, in the second of three days of opening arguments in the Senate trial of Donald J. Trump. Republican senators criticized the Democratic House impeachment managers, calling their arguments “repetitive.” Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii called the Republicans’ claims “hypocritical.”

Sen. Mazie Hirono: “The Republicans have said that we’re being repetitive. Well, you know what? They spent all of Tuesday fighting back all of our efforts to present new evidence and new documents, so they’re being totally hypocritical.”

Today marks the final day of opening arguments by the Democrats. Republicans will begin their opening arguments on Saturday. After headlines, we’ll air highlights of Trump’s Senate impeachment trial and get the latest from law professor Marjorie Cohn, the former president of the National Lawyers Guild.
