    Trump's Legal Team Begins Impeachment Defense, Says The President Did 'Nothing Wrong'

    Trump's Legal Team Begins Impeachment Defense, Says The President Did 'Nothing Wrong'

    President Trump "did absolutely nothing wrong," White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Saturday, as lawyers representing the president got their first shot to poke holes in the impeachment case made this week by Democrats.

    Saturday's proceedings, which lasted a little more than two hours, set up the White House arguments in the impeachment trial. The president's team told senators that the House managers selectively withheld evidence in their arguments against the president.

    This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, Congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, and justice correspondent Ryan Lucas.

    A Few Republicans And The American Public: Democrats Target Their Impeachment Message

    A Few Republicans And The American Public: Democrats Target Their Impeachment Message

    On the second day of their opening arguments in the Senate impeachment trial, Democratic managers honed their case. They hope to persuade a narrow band of Republican senators to support the introduction of new evidence and witnesses.

    And some Republicans have begun to voice concerns about the White House legal team's approach to the trial. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said he wants the team to respond directly to claims made by the Democratic side.

    This episode: campaign correspondent Scott Detrow, White House correspondent Tamara Keith, and congressional editor Deirdre Walsh.

    Senate Impeachment Trial Begins With Partisan Rules Fight

    Senate Impeachment Trial Begins With Partisan Rules Fight

    The first full day of the Trump impeachment trial has been dominated by partisan fighting over the rules of the proceedings.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., released his resolution outlining the next steps, including a week of hours-long opening arguments, on Monday. By Tuesday, ahead of the debate, Senate leaders made additional changes to the trial timeline.

    Speaking on the Senate floor, McConnell called the resolution "a fair road map," that closely tracks precedents. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called the rules "completely partisan." He said McConnell's resolution seems "designed by President Trump for President Trump."

    This episode: campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, congressional correspondent Susan Davis and political reporter Tim Mak.
