WASHINGTON - Democratic impeachment managers on Wednesday wrapped up the first day of presenting their case against U.S. President Donald Trump and why they believe the Senate must remove him from office.
The House impeached Trump last month on two articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Impeachment managers, who are acting as prosecutors, have three days to present their case before the president’s defense team has its turn.
The Democrats accused Trump of designing "a corrupt scheme" to press Ukraine to investigate a political rival, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden, for one reason — "to cheat" to win re-election this year.
“The president has shown he believes he’s above the law and scornful of restraints,” Intelligence Committee head Adam Schiff told the Senate. Schiff is the lead House manager. He spoke for more than two hours Wednesday, saying Trump sought “help from abroad to help himself politically at home. … He used state powers only available to him” and “violated his sacred oath of office.”
