Trump impeachment trial shifts to his defense

WASHINGTON (AP) – Now it’s the Trump team’s time. House prosecutors at former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial relied on emotion and violent images on video to make their case in arguments over the past two days.

The Senate trial is shifting to Trump’s defense lawyers on Friday, and they’re prepared to acknowledge that the violence at the U.S. Capitol last month was every bit as traumatic and illegal as Democrats say.

But Trump’s lawyers plan to say Trump had nothing to do with it. They want to pivot to what they see as the core and more winnable issue of the trial: whether Trump can be held responsible for inciting the deadly riot.

You can watch trial coverage on ABC 36 starting at 12 P.M. Friday.
