Trump Lawyers Urge Senate to Dismiss Impeachment Case, Call it a ‘Brazen Political Act’

Former President Donald Trump’s defense team urged the Senate to dismiss the impeachment case, calling the trail a “brazen political act.” The lawyers say the House managers’ argument is a false narrative propped up by biased and mischaracterized media reports.

Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action, with decadeslong experience in law, says there’s no basis for the argument that Trump’s words incited violence. Meckler says the legal standard for incitement, requires an immediate connection between Trump’s words and the violence.
