President Trump’s defense team slams impeachment trial as ‘political vengeance’ by Democrats

President Trump’s defense team gave their opening arguments on why he is not guilty of inciting the January 6 Capitol breach.Speaking from the Senate floor on Friday, the President’s lawyers called the impeachment trial an act of political vengeance by Democrats, arguing that the President’s words are protected under the freedom of speech.“This appalling abuse of the Constitution only further divides our nation when we should be trying to come together around shared priorities,” defense attorney Michael van der Veen stated.
