White House lawyers concluded their defense of President Donald Trump at his historic Senate impeachment trial on Monday with a call for his acquittal of charges of abuse of power.
“The president has done nothing wrong,” White House counsel Pat Cipollone told the 100 senators who will decide Trump’s fate with a vote on Wednesday.
Denouncing Trump’s impeachment by the House of Representatives as “purely partisan and political,” Cipollone said, “we put our faith in the Senate.”
“End the era of impeachment once and for all,” he urged senators, by rejecting the two articles of impeachment.
