Senate impeachment trial: Trump legal team dismisses Bolton allegations
0

President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team on Tuesday wrapped up three days of opening arguments at his Senate trial but questions remained over whether senators will hear new witnesses, especially former national security adviser John Bolton.

Trump’s lawyers addressed and dismissed reported allegations by Bolton that Trump told him he was withholding military aid to Ukraine until Ukraine agreed to investigate the Bidens.

They argued, even if true, that doesn’t constitute an impeachable offense.

The next phase of the trial — in which senators will submit questions to both sides for up to 16 hours — is expected to begin Wednesday. After that, a pivotal point in the trial — a Senate vote on whether to consider new witnesses and other evidence — could come as early as Friday.
