The House managers, seven Democrats who are acting as “prosecutors” during the trial, began making their case for Trump’s removal from office on Wednesday.
Using documents, text messages and witness testimony gathered during the House impeachment inquiry, Democrats argued that Trump withheld U.S. military aid from Ukraine in an attempt to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens.
Trump has blasted the proceedings, threatening to face off with Democrats by coming to "sit right in the front row and stare at their corrupt faces."
Under Senate rules, House managers are allowed 24 hours of arguments spread out over three days. Once the House managers conclude their presentations, Trump’s lawyers will be allotted the same amount of time for their defense.
The House of Representatives impeached Trump in December when it approved two articles of impeachment–abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The Senate must now decide whether to convict or acquit Trump of those charges.
