Trump’s impeachment process witnesses acrimonious scene over rules of game

12

Washington: The impeachment trial of US President Donald Trump has opened in Senate with acrimonious scene over the rules of the game.

The impeachment trial began on Tuesday and comes nearly a week after the House of Representatives, where the Democrats enjoy a majority, voted to send articles of impeachment against President.

Reports said the 435-member House on December 18 charged the President with “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

President Trump’s lawyers submitted a trial brief calling his impeachment by the House “a dangerous perversion” of the US constitution and demanding his immediate acquittal by the Senate.
