Final Arguments Made in Impeachment Trial of President Trump Ahead of SOTU

HeadlineFeb 04, 2020

House impeachment managers and President Trump’s defense team presented their closing arguments in Trump’s impeachment trial Monday, as the Republican-controlled Senate is poised to acquit Trump in a final vote on the two articles of impeachment Wednesday. This is lead impeachment manager, California Congressmember Adam Schiff.

Rep. Adam Schiff: “He has betrayed our national security, and he will do so again. He has compromised our elections, and he will do so again. You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. He is who he is. Truth matters little to him. What’s right matters even less. And decency matters not at all.”

As the historic impeachment is set to wrap up, President Trump will address the nation tonight for the State of the Union. Several Democratic lawmakers say they will boycott the address, while others are expected to wear white outfits to send a message to Trump — a reference to the suffragette movement.
